Harivyāsamiśra (हरिव्यासमिश्र) or Harivyāsa Miśra (C. 1574 C.E.) has composed the text Vṛttamuktāvalī. Harivyāsa belongs to Ṣanāḍhya family and he was the son of Rāmacandra, grandson of Arjuna and great grandson of Keśava. His grandfather is described as a mine of good qualities, a great devotee of Viṣṇu and well adorned among scholars. Harivyāsa mentions this in Vṛttamuktāvalī itself. He also tells that he is making a garland of metrical gems, and by composing that Harivyāsa will be garlanded in the neck of learned scholars.
