Prakāśendra (प्रकाशेन्द्र) was the name of the father of Kṣemendra, who was otherwise known as Vyāsadāsa as most of the colophons of his works attribute to him. Kṣemendra was the son of Prakāśendra, grandson of Sindhu and father of Somendra and also the brother of Cakrapāla. He was also the descendant of Narendra, the minister of King Jayāpīḍa.
According to Kṣemendra, “Prakāśendra, the light of Kashmir had possessed the glory of the lord of the gods. He was doing sacred sacrifices continuously in his house, in which the Brahmins received the highest honors. In the wonderful temple of great Svayambhu (Brahman), he painted the figure of sixteen mothers (ṣoḍaśamātṛkā) in painting. Prakāśendra was a donor of cows, land etc.”
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.
