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
