In Hinduism

Chandas (prosody, study of Sanskrit metres)

[Ramapati in Chandas glossaries]

Ramāpati (रमापति) or Ramāpati Upādhyāya (before 1704 C.E.) composed Vṛttasāra and an auto commentary called Āloka on it. He was the disciple and the son of Yaśodhara and grandson of Śrīharīśa. He tells the magnanimity of his father and grandfather that his grandfather was a famous scholar in Kāśī and he was entrusted with the title Pājjikāmbhoja. His father, Yaśodhara, was described as the crest of gem of scholars (paṇḍitaśekhara) on the earth and also was adorned with the title of pāñjikārāja. He mentions in the beginning of the text that he was the disciple of Yaśodhara and at the end introduces himself as the son of Yaśodhara. Therefore Yaśodhara was his preceptor as well as father. He beautifully presents the nobility of his family.
