Jaimini. Name of several Hindu authors, the distinction between whom is not always clear. The Mīmāṃsā-sūtras are attributed to a Jaimini (though they are from different dates), as is a Gṛhya Sūtra. Another Jaimini translated the Aśvamedha parvan of the Mahābhārata into Kanarese, and it is regarded as the finest example of poetry in that language.
