Nāṭyaśāstra (theatrics and dramaturgy)
Vasantatilakā (वसन्ततिलका) refers to a type of syllabic metre (vṛtta), according to the Nāṭyaśāstra chapter 16. In this metre, the first two, the fourth, the eighth and the eleventh and the thirteenth and the fourteenth syllables of a foot (pāda) are heavy (guru), while the rest of the syllables are light (laghu).
Vasantatilakā falls in the Śakkarī class of chandas (rhythm-type), which implies that verses constructed with this metre have four pādas (‘foot’ or ‘quarter-verse’) containing fourteen syllables each.(Source): Wisdom Library: Nāṭya-śāstra
