Śṛṅgārarasa (शृङ्गाररस) refers to the “erotic sentiment” used in dramatic performance (nāṭya). It is a Sanskrit compound composed of the words of śṛṅgāra (erotic) and rasa (‘sentiment’). This sentiment is produced from a combination of determinants, consequents and complementary psychological states.Source: Shodhganga: The Kavyavilasa of Ciranjiva Bhattacarya (natyashastra)
Śṛṅgārarasa (शृङ्गाररस) refers to the “erotic sentiment” or “sentiment of love” and is defined by Cirañjīva Bhaṭṭācārya (fl. 17th century). —The basic feeling of śṛṅgāra is love (rati). This sentiment of love is originated from or manifested by the excitants (vibhāva) like beloved etc., ensuants (anubhāva) like side long or oblique glances and variants like mental derangement etc.
This sentiment of love (śṛṅgāra-rasa) is divided into two varieties—
- union (sambhoga-śṛṅgārarasa),
- separation (vipralambha-śṛṅgārarasa).
