We can outline here how to draw up a table for the Āryā metre here, which will then serve as the example for all the other metres also. In the first table write guru-s wherever possible. In the 1st line the exception is in the 6th gaṇa, which must be jagaṇa or nagaṇa. As jagaṇa has a guru we write that shape first. In the 2nd line the 6th gaṇa has only one laghu, so we have to write that there instead of a guru:

to make the second table we replace sarvaguru in the first gaṇa with the next gaṇa variety given in the original table above, which is sagaṇa. Proceeding in this way we can now proceed to draw up the first 21 tables, which will be sufficient to demonstrate the methodology involved:
