Hsyam () Laughter, Mirth, Comedy. Presiding deity: Pramata. Colour: white.
Raudram () Fury. Presiding deity: Rudra. Colour: red.
Kruyam () Compassion, Mercy. Presiding deity: Yama.
Colour: black
Vram () Heroic mood. Presiding deity: Indra. Colour: yellowish
Adbhutam () Wonder, Amazement. Presiding deity: Brahma. Colour: yellow.
ntam Peace or tranquility. Presiding deity: Vishnu. Colour: blue
