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).
General definition (in Hinduism)Source: archive.org: Vedic index of Names and Subjects
Dampati (दम्पति) denotes ‘the master of the house’ in the Rigveda, but is more often used in the dual to designate ‘the master and the mistress’, an expression that may legitimately be deemed to show the high status of women at the time of the Rigveda. See Strī.
