CHIDAMBARAM

GLORY OF THE DANCE

Chidambaram, the seat of cosmic dance has adorned the pages of our sacred scriptures and become a great pilgrim centre for art experts and theists of all nations as well. The fascination it casts on the art connoisseurs wafted its fragrance across the seas. Foreign art lovers spent days in studying, and months in writing dissertations. Their Verdict-scientific offers rich tributes to the Indegenous sculpture in a masterly way. 

That is equally heightening the glory of his temple culture along with the ecstatic rhapsodies of Saint Poets, who in raptures clothed tae presiding deity in such sublime phrases that a mere reading transports anyone to ethereal words. Soma Stavaraja appreciating the role of Siva says 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 and elaborated by the Lord from is ownself in association with his consort - Sakti or Uma. Here is an example in appreciation of Tandava Nritya and it is from Pushpadanta's Mahimna strotra: It describes the dance of Siva, enveloping the entire universe.
