The known major Vedic meters are:

Gāyatrī, Uṣṇih, Anuṣṭubh, Bṛhatī, Pankti, Triṣṭubh and Jagatī

Rig Veda IV.1.16 narrates 21 meters/chandas, as known to the seers of Rig Veda.

The Milch-cow's earliest name they comprehended: they found the Mother's thrice-seven noblest titles. This the bands knew, and sent forth acclamation:with the Bull's sheen the Red One was apparent.

Can anyone quote the remaining Vedic meters?
