Nāṭyaśāstra (theatrics and dramaturgy)
Vādī (वादी, “sonant”) is an alternative spelling for vādin, which refers to one of the four classes of musical notes (svara), according to the Nāṭyaśāstrahapter chapter 28. Accordingly, “that which is an aṃśa-svara (‘chief-note’) anywhere, will in this connexion, be called there Sonant (vādin)”. The sonant note is the melodic centre of the melody.Source: Wisdom Library: Nāṭya-śāstra
Vādī (वादी, “sonant”).—“The sonant (vādī) is the king of notes”. (Saṅgītamakaranda 2.7) Besides the tonic (the Sa), always fixed, each rāga has a predominant note from which all variations begin and in which they end: it is always accentuated and bears long pauses. This main note is called vādī (that which speaks). The expression of the vādī is the predominant expression of the rāga: itscharacter determines the mood.
“The chief element in which the power lies of bringing out a particular mood, a rāga, is the sonant (vādī)”. (Saṅgītadarpaṇa 1.68)
“The sonant (vādī) is the note most used while playing; itis the king (of the melody)”. (Rāgavibodha 1.37) The commentary on the Rāgavibodha adds: “the sonant (vādī), being constantly heard, dominates the melody. Because it explains and heralds the mode, it is called vādī (that which speaks)”.Source: archive.org: Northern Indian Music Volume I
Nāṭyaśāstra (नाट्यशास्त्र, natya-shastra) refers to both the ancient Indian tradition of performing arts, (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 (nāṭya) and poetic works (kāvya).
vadi : (aor. of vadati) spoke; said; told. || vādī (m.) one who disputes or preaches some doctrine; speaking of.Source: BuddhaSasana: Concise Pali-English Dictionary
Pali is the language of the Tipiṭaka, which is the sacred canon of Theravāda Buddhism and contains much of the Buddha’s speech. Closeley related to Sanskrit, both languages are used interchangeably between religions.
