The seven gauṇa-rasas may be included within the five mukhya-rasas. For example hāsya and yuddha-vīra may be included in sakhya. Adbhuta may be included in all five mukhya-rasas. Dāna-vīra and dayā-vīra may be included in vātsalya. Bhayānaka may be included in vātsalya and dāsya, and bībhatsa within śānta. Krodha-rati of raudra-rasa is included within one aspect of vātsalya- and mādhurya-rasa. By studying the topic of inclusion of gauṇa-rasas within mukhya-rasas and applying proper judgement, one should understand the compatibility and incompatibility of these rasas. (Those rasas which are included within others should be understood to be compatible with them. One may consult the compatibility chart that is found in the commentary to Verse 25 for further clarification of this point.)
