1) Vṛttadyumaṇi (वृत्तद्युमणि) is the name of a text dealing with Sanskrit prosody (chandas) for which no authorship could be traced. Usually the authors mention their names, parentage etc. in the colophon of their works. But there are certain works in which, the author leaves no impression of his identity. The Vṛttadyumaṇi is mentioned in the “New Catalogus Catalogorum” XXXI. p. 6.

3) Vṛttadyumaṇi (वृत्तद्युमणि) is the name of a work ascribed to Yaśavanta related to the topics of Sanskrit prosody (chandas) but having an unknown period of composition.
3) Yaśavanta is the son of Gaṅgādhara of Viṣṇuvṛddha family. The author also praises Piṅgala and other predecessors (Ācāryas) as they are the causes of accumulating the pearls from the ocean of metres. Giving justification for his work he says, Though thousands of metrical compositions of most learned scholars are available in this world, a small stream (which never dries) is coming out from me. He defines the vāṅmaya into two categories viz. with metre (sacchanda) and without metre (acchanda). “The gadyakāvyas come under the former and the sacchanda is discussed by me in (Vṛttadyumaṇi)”.
Chandas (छन्दस्) refers to Sanskrit prosody and represents one of the six Vedangas (auxiliary disciplines belonging to the study of the Vedas). The science of prosody (chandas-shastra) focusses on the study of the poetic meters such as the commonly known twenty-six metres mentioned by Pingalas.
