The Nartananir?aya is one of the notable Sanskrit treatise on Indian music and dance, appearing after the Sa?gitaratnakara of Sar?gadeva. Its author Sri Pa??arika Vi??hala (sixteenth century) was a profound and versatile scholar who had also written ?a?ragacandrodaya, Ragamala, Ragamañjari, Dutikarmaprakasa and Sighrabodhini-namamala. He adorned the courts of Hindu and Muslim kings, including those of the rulers of Jaipur and Mughal Emperor Akbar. With a unique methodical plan, the Nartananir?aya progresses through stepwise contributions of the cymbal­ player, the m?da?ga-player and the singer to dancing, in the first three chapters before culminating in its longest and fourth chapter on the dancer. This chapter contains many novel features in the performance conventions and repertoire including some dance forms of both the south and north India. Its delineation of bandha n?tya and anibandha n?tya deserves serious attention of both traditionalist and innovative dancers.The presentation is based on extensive and wide-ranging critical apparatus; it offers detailed text-critical and exegetical comments. The text is supported by a readable translation as well as comprehensive and erudite commentary and numerous indices.Printed Pages: 568.
