Chandaḥsārasaṅgraha (छन्दःसारसङ्ग्रह) is the name of a work on Sanskrit prosody ascribed to Candramohana Ghoṣa (before 1893 C.E.): a modern author of Bengal contributed to Sanskrit Prosody by his Chandaḥsārasaṅgraha. The text was published from Calcutta in 1893 C.E. Therefore it can be presumed that he flourished in the 2nd half of 19th Cent.

The Chandaḥsārasaṅgraha is a recast of Sanskrit Prosody according to modern principles of prosody from ancient sources. Though the text was published from Calcutta in 1893, but extent of the text could not be traced, because of non-availability of the text.
