In Hinduism

Natyashastra (theatrics and dramaturgy)

[Luptopama in Natyashastra glossaries]

Luptopamā (लुप्तोपमा) refers to one of the two varieties of Upamā: one of the 93 alaṃkāras (“figures of speech”) mentioned by Cirañjīva Bhaṭṭācārya (fl. 17th century) in his Kāvyavilāsa under the list of arthālaṃkāras (figure of speech determined by the sense, as opposed to sound).—An example of upamā where the four requisites, i.e., upameya, upamāna, words suggestive of similarity and common attribute are present, is known as pūrṇā and where anyone or two or three of the four requisites are not mentioned, it is known as luptā. If anyone or two or three of the four requisities of upamā are not mentioned then the figure luptopamā takes place. The expression Candramukhī etc. are the illustrations of this variety. The examples of luptopamā are not treated in details by Cirañjīva to avoid lengthiness of the text.
