Trimūḍhaka (त्रिमूढक).—One of the ten type of lāsyāṅga, or ‘elements of the gentle dance’;—The nāṭya adorned with even meters, having deli cate and soft words and rich in manly states is called trimūḍhaka. Abhinava explains that in it there is the confusion or the infatuation of the three, i.e., of the hero due to his resort ing to falsehood, of the heroine who feels hatred, and of the new heroine due to bashfulness, etc., caused by the first sprouting of love. In such circumstances, the words of the hero are bound to be delicate. In this aṅga, such portions of excellences an d figures of speech are to be accepted which are helpful for evoking of the sentiment. Even the use of proper meters brings in strikingness. The character effects manly states profusely.
