Prāsādika (प्रासादिक, “amiable”) is a Sanskrit word referring to “songs to indicate pleasing”. It is one of the five kinds of dhruvā (a type of song according to the Nāṭyaśāstra chapter 32).
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).
