Vedic metrics, one of the six limbs of Vedas is as old as Vedas. However, the oldest surviving
composition on Vedic and Sanskrit metrics in Chandah Sutram (The Science of Metres) composed by
Acarya Pingala Naga. This is one of the most glorious texts in the history of ideas which is of
vital significance both to students, users and scholars of prosody and mathematics.
The tenth century Vedic scholar and mathematician, Halyayudha Bhattas commentary Mrtasanjivani on
Chandah Sutram (CS) is one of the most popular and authentic work that has been used as a text
book of prosody for a long time by teachers and Sanskrit & Vedic scholars through out the Indian
subcontinent. Following the tradition of Vedic learning, Maharsi Dayananda Sarasvati, a great
exponent of Vedas has recommended that the study of prosody must be accomplished before one takes
up the study of Vedas.
This important treatise also deals with various applications of mathematic such as combitnatorics,
sequences, progressions, two types of binary systems & their mapping with decimals. The CS
discusses tabulation of even, half even and uneven metres and related mathematics. The eight
chapter discussed two methods of generating (modern) binary numbers. The second method is a super
fast method not found in modern text books of Computer Science. Conversion rules from binary to
decimal and vice verse are discussed with complete perfection. Applications of binomial theorem
and Varnic Meru (syllabic mountain, generally called Pascal triangle). Depth and mastery of the
sutras (formulae) lie in the fact that the methods of syllabic mathematics extend wisely to
various moric metres. Surprisi
