Rāmanārāyaṇa (रामनारायण) (19th century), otherwise known as Viṣṇudāsa Rāmāyaṇa, was the author of Kīrtichandomālā. Because of his devotion for Lord Viṣṇu, he was conferred with the title of Viṣṇusakhyāpanna. Rāmanārāyaṇa was the son of king Sucetarāma and disciple of Rāmasiṃha, Sadāsukha and Harinātha. It is very clear from the commentary of Kīrtichandomālā that Rāmasiṃha was his bodhaguru, Harinātha was his dīkṣāguru and Sadāsukha was his vidyāguru. He mentions Bhavānīdāsa in Kīrtichandomālā, whom he describes as his upanayanakartā in the commentary. Rāmanārāyaṇa also commented on his own Kīrtichandomālā. He mentions the name of his father and preceptors in the beginning of Kīrtichandomālā.
