Vidvanmodataraṅgiṇī (विद्वन्मोदतरङ्गिणी) is the name of a work ascribed to Cirañjīva Bhaṭṭācārya (fl. 17th century), also known as Rāmadeva or Vāmadeva, son of Rāghavendra.—The Vidvanmodataraṅgiṇī is also written in the campū style of kāvya. It consists of eight chapters called taraṅgas. The first chapter deals with a glimpse of the author’s family history. The remaining chapters give us the fundamental doctrines of all the famous darśanas and the Śākta and the Vaiṣṇava religions in easy fluent poetic language. In the second chapter of this literary work it is seen that erudites of Śākta and Vaiṣṇva religions and philosophers of Nyāya and Vedānta philosophy are entering in a master’s house for establishing their own tenets. In the third chapter the main views of the Tārkikas have been established. In the fourth chapter the main tenets of Nyāya-darśana are told. The fifth chapter deals with the doctrines of the Mīmāṃsā-darśana. In the sixth chapter the main tenets of Sāṃkhya-darśana are told. In the seventh chapter a Pātañjalavit has expressed their own views. The eighth or the last chapter deals with the main doctrines of the Vaiṣṇava religion. If one goes through this campū work, it reads like a drama.
