Nataraja holds fire in one hand, representing the fire element. A damaru in his other hand depicts the space element. Many forces in the universe are represented by a shape similar to that of a damaru.
The meaning of the dance is to liberate men from the vision of the idea of the “self” and of the physical world. The cosmic dance was carried in Chidambaram in South India, called the center of the universe by some Hindus. The gestures of the dance describe Shiva’s five activities, creation (symbolized by the drum), protection (by the “fear not” hand gesture), destruction (by the fire), embodiment (by the foot planted on the ground), and release (by the foot held aloft).
As Natraj Gift Stone Sculpture Shiva describes apocalypse and creation as he dances away the illusory world of Maya converting it into power and wisdom.
The symbolism of Siva Nataraja is religion, art and science mixed as one. In God’s eternal dance of creation, storage, destruction, and paired graces is hidden a deep understanding of our universe. Aum Namah Sivaya.
Bhashya Nataraja, the King of Dance, has four arms. The above right-hand holds the drum from which creation issues forth. The lower right hand is raised in blessing, betokening preservation. The upper left-hand holds a flame, which is destruction, the dissolution of form. The right leg, representing obscuring grace, stands upon Apasmarapurusha, a soul temporarily earth-bound by its own sloth, confusion, and forgetfulness.
The uplifted left leg is revealing grace, which releases the mature soul from bondage. The lower left-hand gestures toward that holy foot in the assurance that Siva’s grace is the refuge for everyone, the way to liberation. The circle of fire represents the cosmos and especially consciousness. The all-devouring form looming above is Mahakala, “Great Time.” The cobra around Natraja Statue’s waist is kundalini shakti, the soul-impelling cosmic power resident within all.
Natraj Gift Stone Sculpture dance is not just a symbol. It is taking place within each of us, at the atomic level, at this very moment. The Agamas proclaim, “The birth of the world, its maintenance, its destruction, the soul’s obscuration, and liberation are the five acts of His dance.”
