First shloka from Natya Shastra

  • Hemavathi Sharma

First Slokam from Natya Shastra taught to Indian Classical dancers.

“Yatho Hasta thatho Drishti, Yatho Drishti thatho Manah. Yatho Manah thatho Bhaava, YathoBhaava thatho Rasa”

Where the hands (hasta) are, go the eyes (drishti); where the eyes are, goes the mind (manah); where the mind goes, there is an expression of inner feeling (bhaava) and where there is feeling, mood or sentiment - experience (rasa) is evoked.
