Sthiramati
安慧 (n.d.) (Skt; Jpn An’ne)

    A scholar of the Consciousness-Only school in southern India, who lived sometime during the fifth or sixth century. He is counted among the ten great scholars of the Consciousness-Only (Skt Vijnanavada) school who wrote commentaries on Vasubandhu's Thirty-Stanza Treatise on the Consciousness-Only Doctrine. Among all the commentaries written on the treatise, Sthiramati's is the only one still extant in Sanskrit.

Sthiramati (Sanskrit; Tibetan: blo gros brtan pa or Sāramati was a 6th century Indian Buddhist scholar-monk. He was based primarily in Valābhi (present-day Gujarat), although he is thought to have spent some time at Nālandā. He was renowned for his numerous and detailed commentaries on Yogācāra and Abhidharma works by Vasubandhu and others, as well as for a commentary on the Kaśyāpa-parivarta.

Takasaki (1966: p. 62) is certain that the author of the embedded commentary (verse and prose) to the core text (verse) of the Ratnagotravibhāga [RGV version as per Johnston, et al. (1950) is Sāramati through his analysis of the RGV with the Dharmadhātvaviśeṣaśāstra.
