Geyapada (गेयपद).—One of the ten type of lāsyāṅga, or ‘elements of the gentle dance’;—It is sung by the musicians seated on th e seats. The singing is augmented by the playing of stringed and percussion instruments. It is devoid of histrionic representation (as it is not sung by the character on the stage). Abhinava says that the singing of the five kinds of dhruvas, devoid of notes used as ālāpa [wordless melodic sequences] in between (the words), that befits the performance is to be understood as the geyapada.
