प्रदीप popular name of the famous commentary on the Mahabhasya of Patanjali written by the reput- ed grammarian Kaiyata in the eleventh century A. D. The corn- mentary is a very scholarly and critical one and really does justice to the well-known compliment given to it, viz. that the Pradipa has kept the Mahabhasya alive which otherwise would have re- mained unintelligible and conse- quently become lost. The commen- tary प्रदीप is based on the commen- tary महाभाष्यदीपिका,or प्रदीपिका written by Bhartrhari, which is available at present only in a fragmentary form. The Pradipa is to this day looked upon as the single com- mentary on the Mahabhasya in spite of the presence of a few other commentaries on it which are all thrown into the back-ground by it.
