chandas In the Rigveda usually denotes a song of praise ’ or hymn.’ The original sense of the word, as derived from the verb chand, to please,’ was probably attractive spell,’magic hymn,' which prevailed on the gods. In a very late hymn of the Rigveda, as well as in one of the Atharvaveda, the word is mentioned in the plural (chandāmsi), beside Ec (γcah), Sāman (sāmāni), and Yajus, and seems to retain its original meaning, not improbably with reference to the magical subject-matter of the Atharvaveda. From denoting a (metrical) hymn it comes to mean metre ’ in a very late verse of the Rigveda, in which the Gāyatrī, the Tristubh, and all (sarvā) the metres (chandāmsi) are mentioned. In the later Samhitās three or seven metres are enumerated, and in the śatapatha Brāhmana eight. By the time of the Rigveda Prātiśākhya the metres were subjected to a detailed examination, though much earlier references are found to the number of syllables in the several metres. Later the word definitely denotes a Vedic text generally, as in the śatapatha Brāhmana.
chandas Occurs in one passage of the Atharvaveda in the adjectival compound brhac-chandas, which is used of a house, and must mean ‘having a large roof.’ Bloomfield accepts the reading as correct, but Whitney considers emendation to Chadis necessary.
bṛhacchandas Is found in one passage of the Atharvaveda as an epithet of śālā, ‘house.’ It is apparently an error for brhad-chadis, ‘ broad-roofed,’ which in any case is the sense.
madhuchandas The reputed author of the first ten hymns of the first Maṇdala of the Rigveda, is mentioned as a Rṣi in the Kauṣītaki Brāhmaṇa and the Aitareya Aranyaka. In the Aitareya Brāhmaṇa he counts as the fifty-first son of Viávā- mitra, and his Praūga (hymn at the morning service) is mentioned in the śatapatha Brāhmaṇa.
