Nataraja : The Cosmic Dancer


Nataraja – The Cosmic Dancer

Absolute and ultimate dance of

Being in the Now’,where

Celestial Creation & Destruction
Dances hand in hand in
Energetic, enigmatic endless flow.
Formless blending into The Form.
Gift to Cosmos. Unfathomed
Happiness undermines the
In-depth, concealed caring of
Justice to prevail, in the
Knowing of the Unknown all.
Lasya ( dance of creation) and thandava (dance of destruction) both
Merging in and emerging from
Nataraja,The Cosmic Dancer.
Oneness personified in essence.
Purity and Power as its source.
Quietude emerging in the motion.
Rare culmination of creative
Subtlety of concealed infinity.
Thathwamasi,’ , that’s the Truth.
Unknown, Unsaid n Unseen
Visions of Ultimate Reality.
Worlds far and beyond knowledge
Xceeds the human excellence.
Yearning _’To be with IT ‘ is all one can wish with the
Zeal of unwavering Faith .

This is a poem penned by my dear mother Anjana. I share it with a lot of joy as found it spiritually and creatively appealing.

I simply loved its amalgamation and the interplay of life and living just as much as the interplay of verses in alphabetical order.

Naṭarāja meaning“the lord of dance”) is a depiction of the Hindu god Shiva as the cosmic ecstatic dancer. … The Nataraja reliefs have been represented in metal or stone in many temples, particularly in South India as well as identified in historic artwork from many parts of South Asia, in southeast Asia such as in Bali, Cambodia, and in central Asia.(Source Wiki)

The ultimate truth is we are one and interconnected with every thing in this dance in sublimity.
