Natyashastra (theatrics and dramaturgy)
1) Ekarūpā (एकरूपा) refers to one of the eighteen jātis: rules used in the playing of drums (puṣkara) [with reference to Mṛdaṅga, Paṇava and Dardura] according to the Nāṭyaśāstra chapter 33. Accordingly, “When one plays separately gomukha in the aḍḍitā, ālipta or vitasta-mārga, it is called Ekarūpā. The playing which produces syllables of the aḍḍitā-mārga such as droṅ ghoṅ doṅ ghoṅ ghegheṅ is also Ekarūpā; it is to be used in case of songs of male singers”.
Also, “this jāti (i.e. Ekarūpā) should be used in case of all characters while the dhruvā is sung in a slow or quick tempo, and it may also be used after one has judged properly the place, time and condition of characters in case of dhruvās sung in a medium tempo. When all other instruments follow one karaṇa in pursuance of the playing of mṛdaṅga, it is called Ekarūpā”.
2) Ekarūpa (एकरूप) refers to one of the twenty prakāras: rules used in the playing of drums (puṣkara) [with reference to Mṛdaṅga, Paṇava and Dardura] according to the Nāṭyaśāstra chapter 33. Accordingly, “when the playing of all the instruments follow one karaṇa, it is called Ekarūpa”.Source: Wisdom Library: Nāṭya-śāstra
