Govindadīkṣita (गोविन्ददीक्षित).—Govinda Dīkṣita in his Saṅgītasudhā (17th century) deals exhaustively with the system of Śārṅgadeva. He gives only 15 scales as meḷas (melās). It was left for his son Veṅkaṭamakhin to construct the sceme of 72 meḷakartās with which begins the modern epoch of Karnātic music.
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).
