2. Dhammakitti.– A monk of Tambarattha. Parakkamabāhu II, hearing of his great virtues and holiness, sent him offerings of piety, inviting him to Sri Lanka. The elder came and was much honoured by the king (Cv.lxxxiv.11). It is commonly believed (e.g., J.R.A.S., 1896, pp.202 ﬀ ) that this was the monk who wrote the continuation of the Mahāvaṃsa (the Cūḷavaṃsa) dealing with the period from the reign of Mahāsena to that of Parakkamabāhu II.
4. Dhammakitti.– Author of the Dāṭhāvaṃsa. He wrote this book in the reign of Līlāvati, at the request of her minister Parakkama, who was his patron. Dhammakitti speaks of himself as a pupil of Sāriputta (of Pulatthipura) (P.L.C.207 f; Gv.62, 67). He is perhaps, identical with Dhammakitti I. P.L.C.215.

This teacher was probably the author of the Pāḷi poem the Pārāmīmahāśataka. In addition to the Saddharmālaṅkāra, his pupil wrote several other works, the Saṅkhepa, the Jinabodhāvalī and the Bālāvatāra; also the Sinhalese chronicle, the Nikāyasaṅgraha. P.L.C.226, 240, 243.
