Dear Harry,

Vaṁśīdhara in his comment on the first verse writes: kanakamañjarī naś ca rau lagau iti sūtrāt. The definition scans right, so to his mind the meter is Kanakamañjarī. I don’t know which sūtra he has in mind.

Best wishes,

Subject: [INDOLOGY] Metre of gopī-gītam

Dear list members,

Can anyone identify the meter of the gopī-gītam (Bhāgavata X, chapter 31).
See this link:<>

It is 11 syllable's per line but as far as I can see it is different from the 11 syllable metres in Apte's dictionaries appendix.
