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.

Wishing you from the bottom of my heart that this harvest festival fill your life with bountiful blessings from Lord Suryanarayana, bringing you good luck, prosperity, happiness and brighter days ahead.
May the bright sunshine outside, radiate on us and make the divine light inside GLOW , so that all negative energy and unhappiness fogging our mind is expelled. When we feel the light inside, we are in a blissful state, confident and full of happiness. This bliss is passed on to all who enter our life.
Will be soon back with blogging Raga Appreciation, Concert Downloads and Music Lessons.
WISH YOU ALL A VERY HAPPY PONGAL

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.
