Ojasvin (ओजस्विन्, “vigorous”) refers to a musical expression corresponding with sucitra (extremely diverse), the sixteenth word of the elā composition (prabandha).—When by a dense arrangement of the text syllables in three octaves the furious sentiment (raudra) is expressed, this is vigour (ojas). A sound with that characteristic is vigorous (ojasvin).
