Rekha Rao (Author)
Synopsis This book on Apsaras in Hoysala art with particular reference to the Belur Chennakesava temple is dealt in two parts, viewing apsara as a dancer and a philosopher. Part one is about the dance of apsara, while part two is about the psychological states of awareness levels that are depicted. It is like exploring the external and the internal world of apsaras. Part I deals with the apsara's skills in dance and dramaturgy, precisely a study of the depiction of Rasas - the sentiments in sculpture. In part II author has tried to view the logic behind the action of apsaras and analyse the reasons philosophically. At this juncture, her actions are taken for the behavioural pattern, in reality. The actions are related to her thought process, the Gunas, the psychological state of the soul or the Avasthas and the level of her self awareness.
