Say Chidambaram and look! There emerges then on the mental screen
the rhythmic foot work and graceful movements of that cosmic dancer
- Nataraja, lost in the demonstration of Bhujanga Trasa to the
accompaniment of orchestral music to serving a royal banquet to the
ears and eyes of the viewers, from his favorite seat of Chitsabha.
Holy is the sight! Holier is the feat!! Holiest is that seat!!! And
the most holiest is that expert!!!! This Chidambaram thus emerged
occupies the most conspicuous place in legends, as the seat of
cosmic dance from time immemorial. Besides, this divya kshetra
enshrines the much-venerated Akasalinga, one of the five exalted
lingas and is worshipped with utmost reverence over ages.
