Ṭavarga (टवर्ग) and Tavarga (तवर्ग) are Sanskrit technical terms referring to a group of letters. According to the Saṅgītaratnākara 4.60-61, the ṭavarga group is presided over by the deity named Jīva (Guru). The tavarga group is presided over by the deity named Śukra. The term is used throughout nāṭyaśāstra, which is the name of the ancient Indian tradition of performing arts, (e.g., theatrics, drama, dance, music), as well as the name of a Sanskrit work dealing with these subjects.
