Kumārīpañhā

Evidently the name given to the questions asked of the Buddha by Māra’s daughters, Taṇhā, Arati, and Ragā — when they visited him in order to tempt him — and the Buddha’s answers.

These questions and answers form the Dhītaro Sutta of the Saṃyuttanikāya (S.i.124 f), but a quotation from them given in the Aṅguttaranikāya (A.v.46 f) is mentioned as having been taken from the Kumārīpañhā.

The Commentary (AA.ii.828) mentions them as being the questions of Māra’s daughters (kumārīnaṃ Māradhītānaṃ pucchā).
