Vṛttagajendramokṣa (वृत्तगजेन्द्रमोक्ष) is the name of a work ascribed to Vāsudeva (18th century): author of Vṛttagajendramokṣa identified with Vāsudeva of the famous Yamaka poem Yudhiṣṭhiravijaya. The Vṛttagajendramokṣa is a metrical composition as it is conspicuous from its title. It is composed by Vāsudeva as a supplement to Vṛttaratnākara of Kedāra Bhaṭṭa and illustration with the Gajendramokṣa of Bhāgavata. It may be noted that Vāsudeva adopted the name and nature of most of the metres from Vṛttaratnākara but the subject matter from Bhāgavatamahāpuraṇa. He has presented it in his own poetic style illustrating the story of Gajendramokṣa in 175 verses composed in 170 metres.
