Chandaḥpīyūṣa (छन्दःपीयूष) is the name of a Sanskrit work on prosody ascribed to Jagannātha Miśra (C. 1750-93 C.E.).—The Chandaḥpīyūṣa is a work with new approaches. Jagannātha not only describes the characteristics and examples of metres but also emphasizes the applicability and accessibility (among scholars) of the science of metrics. The point to be noted that, most of the prosodists illustrate the characteristics and examples of the metres. The number of metres and names may vary from text to text but the style is one. But Jagannātha has gone far ahead and discusses the usability of chandaśśāstra with a new approach. In this work he refutes the earlier theories of his predecessors on the subject and discusses about the various possibilities in a flexible manner.
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.
