Source: Wisdom Library: Nāṭya-śāstra

Vipriya (विप्रिय, “disgust”) refers to one of the four causes of “jealousy” (īrṣya), according to the Nāṭyaśāstra chapter 24.

Accordingly, “disgust (vipriya) will arise when the beloved one says that ‘I live only as long as you live’, ‘I am your slave’ and ‘you are my love’, but behaves in a quite different manner. Representation of disgust (vipriya) should be made by repulsing the female messenger, the latter’s solicitation of reply [made by the beloved one] and also by angry laughter weeping and shaking of the head”.
