1) Chandaḥsāra (छन्दःसार) is the name of a work ascribed to Cintāmaṇi (19th century), son of Jīva, and the chief court astrologer in the princely state of Kohlāpur (now in Mahārāṣṭra). In the Chandaḥsāra, Cintāmaṇi meditates the feet of Lord Gaṇeśa in his mind and remembers his preceptors through in the invocatory verse of the work addressing a lady, where he says that he expands the work; which meant for children. He also mentions the name of the work in this verse.

Cintāmaṇi tells that he was a resident of Kohlāpur; born in a good (śubha) family and the Chandaḥsāra was composed under the patronage of the king of Kohlāpur; which is composed to please the beginners to understand the science of metrics.
