1) Chandoratnāvalī (छन्दोरत्नावली) is the name of a work ascribed to Amaracandra (C. 1225-1300 C.E.): a Jain author of Śvetāmbara sect and disciple of Jinadatta Sūri (author of Vivekavilāsa). Most of his works (e.g., the Chando-ratnāvalī) are published in Kāvyamālā Series, Gaekward Oriental Series and Kashi Sanskrit Series. Also see the “New Catalogus Catalogorum” I. pp. 332-33.
The Chandoratnāvalī is the only work of Amaracandra on Sanskrit prosody. The text is divided into nine chapters. The name of the first chapter as given by the author is Sajñādhyāya. Amaracandra begins the text after praising the feet of the Goddess of Learning (Sāradā). He also pays his tributes to Piṅgala and says that the composition is composed after collecting the pearls of metres from the ocean of Śāstras.
