Dhīraśānta (धीरशान्त) refers to a “hero who is virtuous and kind” (bhāratī and kaiśikī-vṛtti) and represents one of the four kinds of “heroes” (nāyaka) in a dramatic representation, as used within the classical tradition of Indian dance and performance, also known as Bharatanatyam.—In the depiction of any mood or sentiment, a dance performance or a dramatic representation takes the medium of the hero (nāyaka) and the heroine (nāyikas). The heroes are once again classified on the basis of their nature into four types [viz., Dhīraśānta].
