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.
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).
