Bhāskararāya (भास्करराय) (C. 1685-1775 C.E.) alias Bhāsurānandanātha alias Bhāskararāya Makhin was a polymath of 18th Century. He is the son of Gambhīrarāya Bhāratī and Konamāmbā of Viśvāmitragotra and younger brother of Sakhārāma. He was born in a town called Bhāgā. Bhāskararāya’s thread ceremony (upanayana) was performed at Benares by his father and he was placed under the tuition of Narasiṃhādhvarin, who taught him eight vidyās. He studied Gauḍatarka under Gaṅgādhara Vājapeyin. He received dīkṣā of Pūrṇābhiṣeka under Śivadatta Śukla. He is also the preceptor of Umānandanātha, Candrasena.
Bhāskararāya married to Ānandī, who afterward became famous in the name of Padmāvatyambikā and by their union a boy namely Pāṇḍuraṅga took birth. He also married another lady namely Pārvatī during his tour to Gujarat. He migrated to the banks of Krishna river from Benares. Towards the end of his life, he resided at Bhāskararājapuram (on the banks of river Kāverī), gifted to him by the Maratha ruler of Thanjavur.
Chandas (छन्दस्) refers to Sanskrit prosody and represents one of the six Vedangas (auxiliary disciplines belonging to the study of the Vedas). The science of prosody (chandas-shastra) focusses on the study of the poetic meters such as the commonly known twenty-six metres mentioned by Pingalas.
