The God Of Dance

A brief intro before I post the movie link.

I love Lord Shiva among all the 10,000+ Gods that we have in Hinduism. And his famous Cosmic Dance led him to CERN even đŸ˜‰

Quoting from the  ‘Experience Hinduism

This cosmic dance of Shiva is called Anandatandava, meaning the Dance of Bliss, and symbolizes the cosmic cycles of creation and destruction, as well as the daily rhythm of birth and death. The dance is a pictorial allegory of the five principle manifestations of eternal energy:

  • Shrishti – Creation.
  • Sthiti – State, or preservation.
  • Samhara – Destruction.
  • Tirobhava – Illusion.
  • Anugraha – Release, Emancipation.

In the form of Nataraja, Shiva depicts all of these elements.

So yes, it means a lot to us Hindu’s and especially to me as a devotee of Shiva. But this short film that I saw had me in splits because of its imagination and creativity. I hope people see it for what it is and not get offended đŸ˜€

WPC: Family

This is going to be a different one, because after a break, I am yet to settle down and moreover, this is one picture I needed some context to post it. And here is one in the form of this week’s photo challenge. I love this God Family i.e. Lord Shiva and his Family (He is depicted as a androgynous person with his wife Parvati in half and is known as Ardhanarishvara, and his two sons Ganesha and Karthikeya). This is a photograph from a calendar I have at home.
