APPENDIX - II 
MYSTICISM OF THE DANCE

The cosmic dance is an integral part of Saivism, and so a brief elucidation is deemed a necessity here. The indefatigable labours of devout scholars, who dived deep into the ocean of Saiva Philosophy aided and abetted by the toilsome probe made into by the art critics of both east and west have thrown up certain eternal truths that expound the import and purport of the cosmic dance of Lord Siva. Their findings infer that Siva is the King of dancers and His Cosmic dance has an esoteric significance as it is imbued with mysticism of high order.

Going to the origin they say that the world itself is the theatre for Lord Siva to demonstrate 108 varieties of dance therein. And among them nine are deemed very important and popular. Great exponents inspired by the writings of Bharatamuni, the founder have given detailed accounts of this in their treatises. It is said in Somastavaraja that "The three worlds are but the dancing hall of God Siva. The king of dancers is the Supreme Siva Himself. The audience, actors and the stage are all evolved by the Lord from His own self in association with Ins consort Sakti or Uma".
