The text Chandaḥsudhākara with a commentary called Jyotsnā by Kṛṣṇapaṇḍita finds a place in the Descriptive Catalogue of Asiatic Society Bengal. However Aufretch gives the author’s name as Kṛṣṇapaṇḍita (not commentator). According to NCC and the Descriptive Catalogue of Asiatic Society, Bengal, Kṛṣṇapaṇḍita is the commentator and not the author.

The author begins the text with description of the metre āryā, which is clarified by Kṛṣṇapaṇḍita in commentary that as āryā is the sarvalaukika metre and before defining the laukika-chandas the metre āryā is explained.
