Book Description Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd., 2015. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. First edition. Natyasastra (NS) is the most important single source for understanding the character of Sanskrit theatre, poetics, aesthetics, dance and music. Apart from its religious denotation, NS refers to all authoritative and systematic disciplines, normative as well as prescriptive, i.e. codes, manuals, treatises, texts, as well as sciences. According to the Indian tradition, every sastra was first composed in sutra (lit. ëthreadí) or aphoristic style couched in a cryptic language marked by brevity and precision. It later developed through vartika and bhasya. Vartika is a text explaining what is unsaid or imperfectly said and it supples omissions. Bhasya is a further investigation of both sutra and vartika, offering comments of its own and unfolding implicit concepts. This tradition grows further in commentaries and sub-commentaries explicating abstruse ideas, expanding and updating the text, if need be. In theatre, poetics and aesthetics, Bharata is regarded as the author of the sutra (NS), Harsa of the Vartika (since lost), and Abhinavagupta (950-1025 C.E.), as scholar from Kashmir, of the only available bhasya (titled Abhinavabharati or Natyaveda-vivrti). Bharataís date is one of the most debated issues in Indian history of the Sastras (second century B.C.E. to fourth century C.E.). However, the fact cannot be denied that the NS is the oldest extant work on the theory and praxis of ancient Indian performance. It offers the fundamentals of theories which have developed further, especially those of rasa and dhvani. Being an encyclopaedic compendium, it also contains elements of architecture, painting, prosody, language, grammar, phonetics, and other aspects as related to theatre, and draws on disciplines as diverse as philosophy, psychology, mythology, ritual and geography. Datable between 2nd century B.C. to 4th century C.E., the Natyasastra of Bharatamuni is the oldest extant work on the theory and praxis of ancient Indian performative art forms. It offers the fundamentals of theories, especially those of rasa and dhvani, which were subsequently developed by various schools of Indian poetics. Being an encyclopedic compendium, it also contains elements of architecture, painting, prosody, language, grammar, phonetics, and other aspects related to theatre, and draws on disciplines as diverse as philosophy, psychology, mythology, ritual and geography. Present work is the Nepal version of the text of Natyasastra which has been critically edited, with the variants available in the Manuscripts from Jaipur as well as in the Volumes edited by P. Regnaud, J. Grasset, Pandita Shivadatta & Kashinath Pandurang Parab, M Ramakrishna Kavi, and Batukanatha Sharma & Baladeva Upadhyaya, each one based on new Manuscripts discovered in Nepal. This version of the text is based on the Nepal Manuscripts written in Bhujimol, Newari and Devanagari Scripts. The variants available in the Manuscripts from Jaipur as well as in the Volume edited by P. Regnaud, J. Grasset, Pandita Shivadatta & Kashinath Pandurang Parab, M Ramakrishna Kavi, and Batukanatha Sharma & Baladeva Upadhyaya, each one based on new Manuscripts discovered/ obtained by them, have been cited in the footnote to facilitate a comparative study.
