Antarasvara (अन्तरस्वर, “transitional note”).—The transitional note (antarasvara) should always relate to the ascending scale (ārohin) and be made especially weakened (alpa), but it should never be in the descending scale (avarohin). If it is made in the descending scale whether weak or strong, the transitional notes will lead śrutis to the jāti-rāgas.
Natyashastra (नाट्यशास्त्र, nāṭyaśāstra) refers to both the ancient Indian tradition (śāstra) of performing arts, (nāṭya, e.g., theatrics, drama, dance, music), as well as the name of a Sanskrit work dealing with these subjects. It also teaches the rules for composing dramatic plays (nataka) and poetic works (kavya).
