Bhartrahri’s Shringara Trayi occupies an important place in the annals of Sanskrit Literature for many reasons. While Shringara rasa was probably enunciated in Prakrit in times pre-historic and even before his time as in Hala’s Saptasati, Bhartrhari was perhaps the first poet who broke the norm of not using Sanskrit for romantic literature.
