Evidently the name given to the questions asked of the Buddha by Māra's daughters, Tanhā, 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 Samyutta Nikāya (S.i.124f), but a quotation from them given in the Anguttara (A.v.46f) is mentioned as having been taken from the Kumārīpañhā.

The Commentary (AA.ii.828) mentions them as being the questions of Māra's daughters (kumārīnam Māradhītānam pucchā).
