Vṛttamañjarī (वृत्तमञ्जरी) is the name of a work on Sanskrit metrics ascribed to Dhīreśvarācārya (1851-1919 C.E.): a poet of modern Assam who belonged to Tripravara-Bharadvājagotra and was the son of Keśavācārya alias Ātmārāma. The Vṛttamañjarī is divided into 7 chapters named stabakas. The stabakas are again divided into several sub-chapters namely kusumas, consisting 631 verses in total.
Dhīreśvarācārya praises Lord Mukunda in the invocatory verse of the Vṛttamañjarī. He says “by whose greatness the whole universe shines, the Vedas are not able to find whose end, who is looked for by clean hearted yogis desirous of the salvation, bow down my head I worship that Mukunda, who is cause (bīja) of the universe”.
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.
