Jayakīrti (जयकीर्ति) (C. 10th century), author of Chandonuśāsana was a Digambara Jain and hailed from Kannada province now Karṇāṭaka. Velankar remarks on this work as it stands midway between Kedāra’s Vṛttaratnākara and Hemacandra’s Chandonuśāsana in respect of chronology and development.
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.
