Abhinava says that what is described in it is the confusion of the two, the hero and the heroine or the two heroines. There is stepping around in conformity with tāla, which repeats four times as there are four feet in the composition. Mukha and pratimukha are to be understood as the particular tāla components. In it, there is the stepping in four directions after performing the caturasra of the limbs.
