#20-Amazing Pictures of Lord Shiva-108 Poses of Shiva Tandavam-2017

108 Poses of Shiva Tandavam

Tāṇḍavam (also known as Tāṇḍava nṛtya) is a divine dance performed by Lord Shiva. Shiva’s Tandava is described as a vigorous dance that is the source of the cycle of creation, preservation and dissolution. While the Rudra Tandava depicts his violent nature, first as the creator and later as the destroyer of the universe, even of death itself; the Ananda Tandava depicts him as enjoying. In Shaiva Siddhantha tradition, Shiva as Nataraja (lit. “Lord of dance”) is considered the supreme lord of dance.

Divine Navarathri-2016

Divine Navarathri-2016

Once again we are celebrating the divine Nine-Night /Navarathri festival worshipping Goddess in the forms of Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswathi.

Navarathri depicts Mahishasura Vadham – Destroying the demon Mahishasura by Goddess Durga. Mahisham is buffallo which is the embodiment of  lethargy – laziness or jadathwam  filled with immense strength of arrogance. In this modern world, we can infer it symbolically as  the human mind which is the seat of all good and bad tendencies. The mind is a  battlefield where there is always a fight between these two forces – good  Vs bad.
