Natyashastra (theatrics and dramaturgy)

Source: Shodhganga: Mankhaka a sanskrit literary genius (natya)

Ayoga (अयोग) refers to one of the three types of Śṛṅgāra-rasa (love-sentiment) according to Dhanañjaya (Daśarūpaka IV.50). The ayoga variety of śṛṅgāra, which arises due to the dependent position of one or other of the lovers, though deeply attached to each other, cannot in any way be united, through distance or the intervention of ill-luck, has ten stages of love i.e. daśa-kāmadaśā. This ayoga type of śṛṅgāra may be regarded as a subvariety or the broader class of vipralambha or viprayoga.
