Vyabhicāribhāva (व्यभिचारिभाव, “complementary psychological states”).—“Why are these called vyabhicāriṇaḥ?” [In answer] it is said that vi and abhi are prefixes, and the root cara means ‘to go,’ ‘to move. Hence the word vyabhicāriṇah means ‘those that move in relation to Sentiments towards different [kinds of objects.]’ ‘Move in’ implies carrying. It is questioned, “How do they carry?” In answer it is said, “It is a popular convention to say like this, just as the people say, “The sun carries this nakṣatra (star) or that day.” It does not, however, mean that these are carried on arms or shoulders. But this is a popular belief. Just as the sun carries this star, so is to be understood that the Complementary Psychological States [carry the Sentiments].Source: Shodhganga: The Kavyavilasa of Ciranjiva Bhattacarya (natyashastra)
Vyabhicāribhāva (व्यभिचारिभाव, “variants”) or Saṃcāribhāva refers to the “accessories of permanent emotions” (like rati etc.) according to Cirañjīva Bhaṭṭācārya (fl. 17th century).—These vyabhicāribhāvas are thirty-three in number. These vyabhicāribhavas are neither permanent nor inborn. Madness is variant in the case of śṛṅgāra specially in vipralambha-śṛṅgāra. These three treated above are very much needed for the manifestation of rasa.
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).
