The navarasas, according to India's performing arts traditions, are the nine feelings that an audience experiences when seeing a dance, music, or drama performance. Only eight are mentioned in the Natyashastra, a Sanskrit book by Bharata Muni on performing arts: Shringara, Hasya, Karuna, Raudra, Veera, Beebhatsa, Bhayanaka, and Adbhuta. Later, Nandikeshwara removed the ninth rasa, Shanta, from the Abhinaya Darpana.
