Schwartz  The contents of the Natyashastra, states Susan Schwartz, are "in part theatrical manual, part philosophy of aesthetics, part mythological history, part theology". The primary goal is to lift and transport the spectators, unto the expression of ultimate reality and transcendent values. Actors aim to journey the spectator to this aesthetic experience within him. The stories and plots were provided by the Itihasas epics , the Puranas and the Kathas genre of Hindu literature. The best drama shows the good and the bad, actions and feelings, of each character, whether god or man. Just like the taste of food, states Natyashastra, is determined by combination of vegetables, spices and other articles such as sugar and salt, the audience tastes dominant states of a drama through expression of words, gestures and temperaments.
