Siṃhavikrānta (सिंहविक्रान्त) is the name of a metre similair to Bhramaradruta: an Apabhraṃśa metre classified as Dvipadi (metres with two lines in a stanza) discussed in books such as the Chandonuśāsana, Kavidarpaṇa, Vṛttajātisamuccaya and Svayambhūchandas.—Bhramaradruta has 35 mātrās in a line, made up of 2 ṣaṇmātras, 5 caturmātras, and l trimātra at the end, and is marked by the yati after the 10th and the 18th mātrās. When the yati of the Bhramaradmta is shifted to the 12th and the 20th, the 14th and the 22nd, and the 16th and the 24th, it is respectively called Surakrīḍita, Siṃhavikrānta (56), and Kuṃkumakesara. The last two varieties of the Bhramaradmta are not mentioned by Svayambhū.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
