Dear list members

I am looking for usages of the form ‘mātarapitarau’ which was allowed for
in the opinion of northern ācārya-s by ‘mātarapitarāvudīcām’ (A 6.3.31).

A Google Book search on the Unicode मातरपितरौ led me to discover that the
form is used in Hemacandra’s ‘Pariśiṣṭaparva’, but the snippet view
(attached image) does not give any idea of where (which chapter or verse)
the form is used. That the usage occurs in the work is further confirmed by
the discussion by the editors Vijaya Dharma Sūri (and his two disciples) in
the introduction to Muni Bhadra Sūri’s ‘Śrīśāntināthamahākāvyam’. Please
see page 9 of the attached PDF (page 7 in the book) where the editors in
their refutation of H Jacobi’s assessment of Hemacandra’s language discuss
the form ‘mātarapitarau’.

If somebody has a digital edition of  ‘Pariśiṣṭaparva’ or has come across
the form ‘mātarapitarau’ in the work, can they please help with the
complete citation?

In addition, citations of any other attested usages of ‘mātarapitarau’
outside grammar works would be welcome. I am already aware of the examples
in the ‘Mahābhāṣya’ (‘mātarapitarau bhojayataḥ’ and ‘mātarapitarāvānaya’)
and grammatical commentaries. I am not referred the Vaidika Padānukrama
Koṣa (do not have a digital or print copy), perhaps the Vedic texts have an
example or two.

Thanks, Nityānanda
