Sunābha, aka: Sunabha; 3 Definition(s)
Sunābha (सुनाभ) is the Sanskrit name of one of Bharata’s sons, mentioned in the Nāṭyaśāstra 1.26-33. After Brahmā created the Nāṭyaveda (nāṭyaśāstra), he ordered Bharata to teach the science to his (one hundred) sons. Bharata thus learned the Nāṭyaveda from Brahmā, and then made his sons study and learn its proper application. After their study, Bharata assigned his sons (eg., Sunābha) various roles suitable to them. The Nāṭyaśāstra is the ancient Indian tradition of performing arts, e.g. drama, dance, music.
