Rāmarudra (रामरुद्र) or Rāmarudra Bhaṭṭācārya, is the author of the Tarangiṇī : a commentary on the Bhāṣāpariccheda by Viśvanātha Nyāyapañcānana. The Bhāṣāpariccheda belongs to the syncretic school of Nyāya-Vaiśeṣika. It is known as Kārikāvalī also, on which the author himself has written a commentary called Nyāyasiddhāntamuktāvalī. This work of Viśvanātha has been commented upon by many traditional and modern scholars [viz., by Rāmarudra Bhaṭṭācārya].
