Attanomati = Own views = Anything other than the above 3
Many scholars in Burma respect Ledi sayadaw’s tikas saying they are comprehensive, while some people criticize him a little because sayadaw had criticized an early tika on minor points.
Sometimes we find few places where two early tikas have some disagreements between each other on minor points, but tikas hardly disagree with atthakatha. Tikas have been written by the monks who highly respect the atthakatha.
One tika says the atthakatha is pakinnakadesana of the Buddha while the other says root of the atthakatha is Buddhavacana.
Good example of this regard:
AN Mettāvagga -Uttaravipattisutta (Uttara on Failure)
Now at that time the great king Vessavaṇa was on his way from the north to the south on some business. He heard Venerable Uttara teaching this to the mendicants on Saṅkheyyaka Mountain. “…”
Then Vessavaṇa vanished from Saṅkheyyaka Mountain and appeared among the gods of the Thirty-Three, as easily as a strong person would extend or contract their arm. Then he went up to Sakka, lord of gods, and said to him:
“Please sir, you should know this. Venerable Uttara is teaching the mendicants on Saṅkheyyaka Mountain in this way: “…”
Then Sakka went up to Venerable Uttara, bowed, stood to one side, and said to him:
“Is it really true, sir, that you teach the mendicants in this way: “…”
“Indeed, lord of gods.”
“Sir, did this teaching come to you from your own inspiration, or was it spoken by the Blessed One, the perfected one, the fully awakened Buddha ?”
“Well then, lord of gods, I shall give you a simile. For by means of a simile some sensible people understand the meaning of what is said.
Suppose there was a large heap of grain not far from a town or village. And a large crowd were to take away grain with carrying poles, baskets, hip sacks, or their cupped hands. If someone were to go to that crowd and ask them where they got the grain from, how should that crowd rightly reply?”
“Sir, they should reply that they took it from the large heap of grain.”
“In the same way, lord of gods, whatever is well spoken is spoken by the Blessed One, the perfected one, the fully awakened Buddha. Both myself and others rely completely on that when we speak.”
“It’s incredible, sir, it’s amazing! How well this was said by Venerable Uttara! ‘Whatever is well spoken is spoken by the Blessed One, the perfected one, the fully awakened Buddha. Both myself and others rely completely on that when we speak.’
