Natya Veda

The knowledgte (Veda) about dance (Natya).

Brahma took a part from each of the four Vedas – the language of the Rig Veda, the expression of the Yajur Veda, the music of the Sama Veda, the aesthetics of the Atharva Veda and gave the Natya Veda to sage Bharata, who wrote a drama and visited Shiva with the request to create the dance moves for it.

Bharata’s Natya Shastra is the oldest script of dance and drama and in India the basis for classical dance and classical music.
