Gadyavṛtta (गद्यवृत्त) or simply Gadya.—As the metres are used in padyas, there are also metres, prescribed for gadyas. Gaṅgādāsa (authr of Chandomañjarī), Raghunātha Dāsa (author of Vṛttāvalī), Gopīnātha Pātra (author of Kavicintāmaṇi) advocate about these kind of metres in a certain method. Candraśekhara (author of Vṛttamauktika) divides the whole vāṅmaya in two groups i.e. padya and gadya. He defines gadya as the composition, which is distracted with pāda. He again divides the gadya into three viz. Cūrṇaka, Utkalikāprāya and Vṛttagandhi.
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.
