LORD SHIVA ARATI: Swami Vishwananda at altar, Sri Nilaya Peetam, Springen, Shivaratri 2010


The Lord (or King) of Dance is a depiction of the Hindu god Shiva as the cosmic dancer who performs his divine dance to destroy a weary universe and make preparations for god Brahma to start the process of creation. SHIVA is most often depicted through a statue. The dance of Shiva in Tillai, the traditional name for Chidambaram, forms the motif for all the depictions of Shiva as Nataraja. He is also known as "Sabesan" which splits as "Sabayil aadum eesan" in Tamil which means "The Lord who dances on the dais".The form is present in most Shiva temples in South India, and is the main deity in the famous temple at Chidambaram.

Shivaratri 2010

Shivalingam (with Shiva Nataraji) has been blessed by Mahavatar Babaji. He has given the lingam the name Mrityumbageshwar. The meaning is “the one who removes all suffering and inspires people to realize the Divine. (Beautifully dressed after Abishekum by Gurudeva).
