Saṃghātaja (संघातज, “growing out of contrast”) refers to one of the four kinds of vistāra (expansion), according to the Nāṭyaśāstra chapter 29. It can also be spelled as Saṅghātaja (सङ्घातज). Vistāra represents one of the four classes of dhātu (stroke), which relate to different aspects of strokes in playing stringed instruments (tata).
According to the Nāṭyaśāstra, “the saṃghātaja and the samavāyaja consist respectively of two and three strokes. The first is of four kinds, and the second of eight kinds. The saṃghātaja strokes have the following varieties: two high, two low, low-high and high-low”.
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).
