1) Sthāyin (स्थायिन्) refers to “permanent state”. The term is used throughout nāṭyaśāstra literature.
The permanent states (sthāyin) are of eight types:
- rati (love),
- utsāha (energy),
- jugupsā (disgust),
- krodha (anger),
- hāsa (mirth),
- smaya, vismaya (astonishment),
- bhaya (fear),
- śoka (sorrow)
According to the Daśarūpa 4.43, “The Permanent States (sthāyin, sc. bhāva), the source of delight, is one which is not interfered with by [other] States (bhāva), whether consistent [with it] or inconsistent, but which brings the others into harmony with itself..”
2) Sthāyin (स्थायिन्, “staying”) refers to “monotonic” and is one of the four varṇas (order), according to the Nāṭyaśāstra chapter 29. These four varṇas define the production (i.e., order or scale) of notes (svara) and are used to make up the thirty-three alaṃkāras (embellishments) of a song.Source: archive.org: Northern Indian Music Volume I
Sthāyin (स्थायिन्) refers to the first of four stages through which a rāga (melodic mode) develops itself.—The sthāyin / sthāyī (the pallavi of Souith Indian music) establishes the theme, starting from the middle tonic (middle Sa). It is focused on the sonant (vādī / vādin) and though it never rises above the B (Ni) of the middle octave, it descends as deeply as possible into the lower octave.
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).

Sthāyin.—(wrongly read as Sthāmin in Ep. Ind., Vol. XXIV, p. 145, text line 2), possibly, the permanent tenants of a village. See Ep. Ind., Vol. XXXI, p. 234. Cf. Āsthāyika-puruṣa. Note: sthāyin is defined in the “Indian epigraphical glossary” as it can be found on ancient inscriptions commonly written in Sanskrit, Prakrit or Dravidian languages.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.

[Sanskrit to German]
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.
