Vidyakara (c.1050 AD-1130AD) was a Buddhist scholar and poetry
anthologist, noted for the Sanskrit poetry compilation
subhAShitaratnakoSha. Some consider it to be the "most celebrated"
anthology of Sanskrit verse. Most of the verses, where authorship
is noted, range over the two centuries prior to compilation, and
hence it may be thought of as a compilation of "modern verse" for
the period. About Vidyakara himself, very little is known. D. D.
Kosambi has argued compellingly for Vidyakara having been a senior
monk at the Jagaddala Vihara monastery in North Bengal, based on
evidence which includes markings on the palm-leaf manuscript of an
earlier edition of the work, claimed to be Vidyakara''s original,
of what may have been shelfmarks from the library in Jagaddala.
