Clear Meaning Commentary (Skt. Sphuṭārthā; Wyl. 'grel pa don gsal) by Haribhadra, the most celebrated commentary on Maitreya's Abhisamayalankara.

The actual title is 'Commentary on the Abhisamayalankara, the Shastra of Instructions on the Prajnaparamita' (Skt. Abhisamayālaṅkāra-nāma-prajñāpāramitopadeśaśāstravṛtti; Wyl. shes rab kyi pha rol tu phyin pa'i man ngag gi bstan bcos mngon par rtogs pa'i rgyan zhes bya ba'i 'grel pa), but it is commonly known as the Sphutartha (literally 'blossomed or burst open meaning').
