Vrīdā (व्रीदा, “shame”) has improper action as its basis. It is caused by determinants (vibhāva) such as repentance on account of transgressing words of superiors or disregarding them, nonfulfilment of vows and the like. It is to be represented on the stage by consequents (anubhāva) such as covered face, thinking with downcast face, drawing lines on the ground, touching clothes and rings, and biting the nails, and the like.
