Natyashastra (theatrics and dramaturgy)
Pratyālīḍha (प्रत्यालीढ).—A type of standing-posture (sthāna);—Instructions: when the right foot is bent and the left foot is put forward in the Ālīḍha Sthāna the Pratyālīḍha will be produced.
(Uses): After taking an aim from the Ālīḍha Sthāna the missile to be [actually] released from the Pratyālīḍha Sthāna. The actor should release various weapons from this Sthāna.Source: Shodhganga: The significance of the mūla-beras (natya)
Pratyāliḍha (प्रत्यालिढ) refers to one of the nine maṇḍala (postures of the feet) which represents one of the four “movements of the feet” (pāda) according to the Abhinayadarpaṇa. Pratyāliḍha-maṇḍala is the reversed position of the ālīḍha-maṇḍala. The moment an arrow has been discharged from the bow, the body springs forward. This stance is called pratyālīḍhāsana in iconography.Source: Shodhganga: Elements of Art and Architecture in the Trtiyakhanda of the Visnudharmottarapurana (natya)
Pratyāliḍha (प्रत्यालिढ) refers to “one of the six kinds of standing postures for Men” (in Indian Dramas), according to the Viṣṇudharmottarapurāṇa, an ancient Sanskrit text which (being encyclopedic in nature) deals with a variety of cultural topics such as arts, architecture, music, grammar and astronomy.—Standing postures are determined separately for male and female. In the Viṣṇudharmottarapurāṇa six kinds of standing postures are discussed for men. Due to the edition of the prefix called prati which means opposite, pratyāliḍha posture denotes that posture which is totally the opposite of āliḍha posture. The Viṣṇudharmottarapurāṇa also agrees on it and accepts pratyāliḍha posture as the reverse form of āliḍha posture. According to the Nāṭyaśāstra, the soldiers release the missiles from pratyāliḍha posture after taking an aim from āliḍha posture.
Natyashastra (नाट्यशास्त्र, nāṭyaśāstra) refers to both the ancient Indian tradition (shastra) of performing arts, (natya—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), construction and performance of Theater, and Poetic works (kavya).
Pratyālīḍha (प्रत्यालीढ) or Pratyālīḍhāsana similar to the pratyālīḍha-maṇḍala in Bharatanatyam, as defined according to texts dealing with śilpa (arts and crafs), known as śilpaśāstras.— In the pratyālīḍha-āsana, the arms and legs of ālīḍha have to be interchanged.
Shilpashastra (शिल्पशास्त्र, śilpaśāstra) represents the ancient Indian science (shastra) of creative arts (shilpa) such as sculpture, iconography and painting. Closely related to Vastushastra (architecture), they often share the same literature.
