Atthasālinī (Pali) is a Buddhist text composed by Buddhaghosa in the Theravada Abhidharma tradition. The title has been translated as "The Expositor" or "Providing the Meaning". In the Atthasālinī, Buddhaghosa explains the meaning of terms that occur in the Dhammasangani, a Buddhist text that is part of the Pali Canon of Theravada Buddhism.

Atthasālinī-Buddhaghosa's commentary on the Dhammasanganippakarana of the Abhidhamma Pitaka.

It was originally written in India (Mhv.xxxvi.225; Sas.31), but was probably revised in Ceylon as it mentions (pp. 97-8) the Samantapāsādikā, also various Atthakathās and the Visuddhi Magga.

Atthasālinī-Commentary on the Dhammasaṇgaṇī, the first book of the Abhidharma Piṭaka of the Pāli Canon. A work of the school of Buddhaghoṣa (according to its introduction it was written at his request), it was originally composed in India but revised in Sri Lanka, as shown by the fact that it bears mention of later works.

Within the Atthasālinī, Buddhaghosa explains the meanings of the fifty-two mental factors (Pali: cetasikas) described in the Dhammasangani.
