Nataraja

Nataraga

NATARAJA

See Shiva shiver
From the cold? Or ecstasy?
Who feels it knows it

——————————————————————

“Nataraja, is a depiction of the Hindu God Shiva as the cosmic dancer who performs his divine dance to destroy a weary universe and make preparations for the god Brahma to start the process of creation.”
