Vyayoga is the form of Sanskrit theatre. The meaning of Vyayoga is actually described as intense or manifold action. It uses a well-known story for its plot, and its dramatic personae consisted mostly of males and a few females. It represented contentment, not provided by a woman. Hence it was composed without the typically feminine kaisiki i.e. graceful vritti. The hero was a celebrated personage i.e. a royal ascetic rajarshi or god of the `firm and haughty` i.e. dhiroddhata variety. Its principal rasas did not include the santa i.e. peaceful, hasya i.e. comic, and sringara i.e. erotic. Bhasa`s Madhyamavyayoga i.e. `Vyayoga of the Middle One` is the typical example, describing the exploits of Bhima overpowering Ghatotkacha in the Mahabharata.
