Natyashastra (theatrics and dramaturgy)Source: Wisdom Library: Nāṭya-śāstra
Agnikuṇḍa (अग्निकुण्ड) is the Sanskrit name of one of Bharata’s sons, mentioned in the Nāṭyaśāstra 1.26-33. After Brahmā created the Nāṭyaveda (nāṭyaśāstra), he ordered Bharata to teach the science to his (one hundred) sons. Bharata thus learned the Nāṭyaveda from Brahmā, and then made his sons study and learn its proper application. After their study, Bharata assigned his sons (eg., Agnikuṇḍa) various roles suitable to them.
