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.
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.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
