Lāsya (लास्य) is a gentle dance. The word lāsya is derived from the root ‘las’ meaning to play, to frolic. It is so called due to the mutual state of attraction between a woman and a man. Abhinava explains ‘lasana’ as ‘krīḍā’—the sportive state. It is the mutual jo ining of one’s mind with that of the other, i.e., the state of attraction of a wo man in regard to a man or of a man in regard to a woman.
