Jaghanavipulā (जघनविपुला) refers to a variety of Vipulā: one of the three main types of Gāthā: one of the oldest Prakrit meters probably developed out of the epic Anuṣṭubh, as discussed in books such as the Chandonuśāsana, Kavidarpaṇa, Vṛttajātisamuccaya and Svayambhūchandas.—There are three main kinds of a Gāthā, i.e., Pathyā, Vipulā and Capalā. In a Pathyā, the end of a word must coincide with the yati after the 12th mātrā in both the halves, while in the Vipulā it does not so coincide in one of the two halves or in both. Vipulā is accordingly Mukhavipulā or Jaghanavipulā or Sarvavipulā according as the characteristic appears in the first or second or both the halves.
