Origin of "NATYASHASHTRA"

March 28, 2013

Bharta Muni was instructed by Lord Brahma about NatyaVeda in the beginning. Bharata along with the hordes of Apsaras and Ganharvas gave his presentation on Natya  (nritta) in front of Shiva. Shiva instructed Bharata through his attendants in NatyaVeda, after he was reminded about his own wonderful performance. Through Parvati, Bharata was instructed into lasya out of immense Love. The sages imparted the dance of Tandav. Dance of Lasya was imparted to Bana's daughter Usa by Parvati herself. Usa in turn taught this art to the cowherdress of the Dwaraka. They taught this form in saurshtra. Thus the system was passed traditionally from one to another.
