Vṛttacandrodaya (वृत्तचन्द्रोदय) is the name of a commentary (on Chandaśśāstra of Piṅgala) on the topic of Prosody ascribed to Bhāskararāya (C. 1685-1775 C.E.), a polymath of who composed around forty works covering the subjects of vedānta, mīmāṃsā, vyākaraṇa, nyāya, prosody, kāvya, smṛti, mantraśāstra, Vedic literature. Also see the “New Catalogus Catalogorum” XVII. pp. 133-135.

Some catalogues consider Vṛttacandrodaya as an independent work, while for some, it is a commentary on Chandaśśāstra of Piṅgala. But it is clear from the colophon of the work that it is an independent work and not a commentary. The work is composed, when the author was fifty years of age i.e. 1735 C.E. (discussed above). Bhāskara praises the Brahman in the invocatory verse of the Vṛttacandrodaya. He says: the brahma, who is the combination of Śiva and Śakti is also trimūrtyātmaka. He also ascribe the first sūtra of Chandaśśāstra i.e. dhīśrīstrī to aṣṭamūrti śiva. He also praises Lord Śiva and the gurus, who have given the knowledge to him, in that verse.
