Saṃplavā (संप्लवा) refers to one of the eighteen jātis: rules used in the playing of drums (puṣkara) [with reference to Mṛdaṅga, Paṇava and Dardura] according to the Nāṭyaśāstra chapter 33. Accordingly, “Dardura, paṇava and mṛdaṅga should be played by halves (?) the manner of the ardhāvakīrṇā-jāti and with light syllables included in the suitable mārga, and it should consist of syllables like thaṇ goda gheṅḍaā sendrām. This called the saṃplavā-jāti. The saṃplavā-jāti produced by using all the fingers and by all the strokes of mṛdaṅga, is to be applied to movement of terrified persons and to any movement of them in the sky”.

context information

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
