1) Vṛttamauktika (वृत्तमौक्तिक) by Lakṣmīnātha-bhaṭṭa (C. 1600 C.E.) was started by his son Candraśekhara (17th century) and completed by himself. Though some catalogues mention it as a commentary on Prākṛtapiṅgala, some give credit to it as a composition on the text, because it is composed in metrical paraphrase354. The details about the work will be discussed under Candraśekhara.

1) Candraśekhara, author of the Vṛttamauktika, introduces the doṣas of Sanskrit Prosody. This is a peculiar interpretation of Vṛttamauktika in the study of Sanskrit metrics, where a chapter (11th) explains doṣas being named as doṣaprakaraṇa. He has observed nine doṣas based on the context of the subject matter, the style, the rasa and other aspects of the composition. They are: amaitrī, niranuprāsa, kalāhatiḥ, ayuktavarṇana, hataucitya, viparītayuta, viśṛṅkhala, skhalattāla.

2) Vṛttamauktika (वृत्तमौक्तिक) 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 Vṛtta-mauktika is mentioned in the “New Catalogus Catalogorum” XXXI. p. 9.
