Chandas (prosody, study of Sanskrit metres)
Ruciramukhī (रुचिरमुखी) is the name of a Sanskrit metre (chandas) defined by Bharata, to which Hemacandra (1088-1173 C.E.) assigned the alternative name of Kamaladalākṣī in his auto-commentary on the second chapter of the Chandonuśāsana. Hemacandra gives these alternative names for the metres by other authorities (like Bharata), even though the number of gaṇas or letters do not differ.Source: Shodhganga: a concise history of Sanskrit Chanda literature
