The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.
Chandas (prosody, study of Sanskrit metres)
1) Mathurānātha (मथुरानाथ) or Mathurānātha Śukla (17th century) was a dynamic scholar contributed to the study of Sanskrit prosody through his four metrical compositions. He was a scholar of dharma, nyāya, stotra, yoga, prosody, poetics, mantra etc. Mathurānātha has composed four metrical compositions, but unfortunately now, none of them are available to us. The works are: 1. Chandaḥkalpalatā, 2. commentary on Chandaśśāstra of Piṅgala, 3. Vṛttadarpaṇa, and 4. Vṛttasudhodaya. All these texts are mentioned in the catalogue of Sanskrit Manuscripts in the private libraries of the north-western provinces, parts. I. & II.
2) Mathurānātha (मथुरानाथ) or Mathurānātha Śukla Mālavīya (C. 1750-1825 C.E.), a native of Mālava (presently Malwa), was a Brahmin by caste; was different from the author of the same name of 17th Cent. He was an authority on jyotiṣa, stotra, yoga, bhakti and chandas. He was the son of Sadānanda, who migrated from Patna to Kāśī. Śivanātha Jharakhandi says in his Bhāratīya Jyotiṣ that Mathurānātha worked in the library of Sanskrit Pāṭhaśālā of Kāśī from 1813 to 1818 C.E. He received the patronage of Dayālucandra, grandfather of Śivaprasāda, the famous king of Kāśī.Source: Shodhganga: a concise history of Sanskrit Chanda literature
