NavarasasThe Navarasas or nine emotions give dance a completeness that allows the dancer and the rasikas (audience) to experience the full beauty and meaning of the lyrics and the movements potrayed.

The state of rasa is established due to Vbhava, which is the cause of emotion, Anubhava that is the effect of emotion and Sanchari or Vyavhichari bhava, which are subordinate emotions. These in their respective order change the Sthayi bhava that is primary emotion into rasa or bliss. Sthayi bhava is composed of the Nava rasas (nine rasas or moods).

A rasa denotes an essential mental state and is the dominant emotional theme of a work of art or the primary feeling that is evoked in the person that views, reads or hears such a work.
Although the concept of rasa is fundamental to many forms of Indian art including dance, music, musical theatre, cinema and literature, the treatment, interpretation, usage and actual performance of a particular rasa differs greatly between different styles and schools of abhinaya, and the huge regional differences even within one style.

Abhinavagupta suggested a ninth rasa when only eight were accepted and it had to undergo a good deal of struggle between the sixth and the tenth centuries, before it could be accepted by the majority of the Alankarikas, and the expression Navarasa (the nine rasas), could come into vogue.
