“She offered to arbitrate, and in the grand tradition of all Tricksters, proceeded to rob the trustful demons.

Her smiles and loving glances were all for the Asuras, but all the while she was giving the Amrita to the Devas."

Lord Shiva Tandav or Nataraja dance
Artist : @preetham_m 🎨
🔸🔹🔸🔹
#LordShiva is also known as #Nataraj, the Dancing God. This divine art form is performed by Lord Shiva & his divine consort Goddess #Parvati. The dance performed by Lord Shiva is known as Tandava. Shiva’s Tandava is a vigorous dance that is the source of the cycle of creation, preservation & dissolution. Tandava depicts his violent nature as the destroyer of the universe.

Characteristics of #Tandava Dance
According to scholars, ‘Characteristics of the Tandava Dance’ have been described in the 4th chapter of Bharat Muni’s Nata Shastra, which is referred to as fifth Veda & an expression of Lord Shiva’s eternal dance - #Tandav. It says that Shiva’s Tandava is embellished with 108 karanas and the 32 anghaharas - the composite parts of the dance. Bharat Muni further says that Lord Shiva conceived the dance, as he was very much fond of dancing every evening. Shiva further mentioned that 108 karnas included in tandava could be employed in the course of dance, fight, & personal combats & in other special movements like strolling.

Types of #Tandava
Some scholars believe that there are 7 different types of Tandava. The tandava performed with joy is called Ananda Tandava & that which is performed in violent mood is called #Rudra Tandava. The other types of tandava identified are Tripura Tandava, Sandhya Tandava, Samara Tandava, Kaali Tandava, Uma Tandava & Gauri Tandava. However, there are few people who believe that there are 16 types of Tandava.

Significance:
The cosmic dance of Shiva, called ′Anandatandava,′ meaning, ‘The Dance of Bliss’ symbolizes the cosmic cycles of creation & destruction, as well as the daily rhythm of birth & death. The dance is a pictorial allegory of the 5 principle manifestations of eternal energy - creation, destruction, preservation, salvation & illusion.

The dance of Shiva also represents his 5 activities namely:
1. ′Shrishti′ - creation, evolution.
2. ′Sthiti′ - preservation, support.
3. ′Samhara′ - destruction, evolution.
4. ′Tirobhava′ - illusion.
5. ′Anugraha′ - release, emancipation, grace.

Wednesday Sept. 20th marks the start of Navratri. Probably one of the only Hindu holidays I enjoy celebrating. It's the 9 day celebration of the 9 aspects of Durga. I plan on making a daily post on which goddess the day belongs to and a bit about them. The Devi Mahatmya, which is just as important as the Gita yet less circulated, was one of my favorite Puranas. It describes the feminine energy of the universe as dominant over the masculine energy and the schools of Hinduism that prescribe to this (Shaktism) but it's pivotal in every school of Hinduism. I posted awhile back for someone to challenge me where any non-atheist school (holla at my peeps! also, even here some schools still) of Hinduism has a male/masculine divine over Shakti, and I'll show you where you're wrong. Still haven't found someone. Vaishnavism is the only section of philosophies and practice that place male deities at the head of their schools but still... Shakti, Devi, Maha Maya, The Supreme Goddess is present as far more powerful energy in even those cosmologies. I wonder how Vaishnavism became so patriarchal... (hint: it was the West). Anyway, here's a pretty cool drawing I found of Durga as she is normally depicted as Mahishasura Mardini aka The Killer of The Great Demon. Mythology goes, the male gods couldn't defeat him so they went with the absolute last resort plan because it's a big deal. They manifested Shakti from all pervasive energy of the universe into a physical form and she SLAAAAAAAAAAYED. Haha. No but really she killed the fuck out of him and then was like "but why am I being bothered with this simple-ass task?", read the Durga Saptashati. It's amazing. Hopefully my plans to celebrate don't fall through.

Opinions and debates invited.

Why do you think people don't take pain to read Indian scriptures and understand Hindu Philosophy these days according to you? How many people actually know about them? How many people know meaning of Guru, Brahman, Varna, Pantha, Dharma and Karma?
Why is yoga, philosophy, mythology, ayurved, sanskrit, vedic and puranic knowledge are not part of Indian Education System? Please share your opinions.
I personally feel it's important to discover them again as they are great sources of knowledge. How many people know that they are still useful if you read them?

Only one request - don't take this post wrongly. I am not starting a debate on hindu vs other religion. I am just taking efforts to understand Hindu Philosophy and scriptures. Finding them undoubtedly great pieces of knowledge.

#Kathakali is one of the major forms of #classical #Indian #dance. It is another "story play" genre of #art, but one distinguished by the elaborately #colorful make-up, #costumes and #facemasks that the #traditionally male actor-dancers wear. Kathakali primarily developed as a Hindu performance art in the #Malayalam-speaking #southwestern region of India (#Kerala)

Kathakali's roots are unclear. The fully developed style of Kathakali originated around the 17th century, but its roots are in the temple and folk arts (such as #Kutiyattam and religious drama of the southwestern Indian peninsula), which are traceable to at least the 1st millennium. A Kathakali performance, like all classical dance arts of India, synthesizes music, vocal performers, choreography and hand and #facial #gestures together to express ideas. However, Kathakali differs in that it also incorporates movements from ancient Indian martial arts and athletic traditions of South India. Kathakali also differs in that the structure and details of its art form developed in the courts and theatres of Hindu principalities, unlike other classical Indian dances which primarily developed in Hindu temples and #monastic schools.
The traditional themes of the Kathakali are #folk #mythologies, #religious legends and #spiritual ideas from the Hindu epics and the #Puranas. The vocal performance has traditionally been performed in #Sanskritised Malayalam. In modern compositions, Indian Kathakali #troupes have included women artists, as well as adapted Western stories and plays such as those by Shakespeare and from Christianity.

In English -

Juga sahastra jojan par bhaanu |
Leelyo taahi madhur phal jaanu |

juga means the sum of Four Yugas (1 complete Mahayuga) with unit in divine years.
Satiyuga= 4800 divine years
Tretayuga=3600 divine years
Dwaparyuga=2400 divine years
Kaliyuga=1200 divine years

So 1 juga= 12000 years

Now next is sahastra (सहस्त्र) is common sanskrit word meaning "1000"
Next is jojan also know as Yojan that equals to 8 miles...!! lets calculate distance of sun from earth

Juga X Sahastra X jojan (in miles) = 12000 X 1000 X 8 = 9,60,00,000 miles

Now 1 mile= 1.6km

So 9,60,00,000 miles= 9,60,00,000 X 1.6 km = 15,36,00,000km.
Today estimated distance by NASA is approximately 15,0000000 km which is close to above.

The Puranas mention about each soul sailing over river "Vaitarini"to reach the abode of Supreme Soul or God. " Naukasana" for me is symbolic to sailing through Vaitarani and crossing it over with grace of our Guru or Master.

Significant #Aspects of #Pitru #Shraddha -06.09.2017 to 19.09.2017
As it has been rightly pointed out by the great poet #Kalidasa, “#Shareeramaadyam #Khaludharmasaadhanam”, i.e, the body is the main instrument for the performance of all duties. As human beings, we procured our body from our parents. This makes us to stand in great debt (Runa) on our parents, forefathers and ancestors. Hence, it is a duty to show our gratitude to our ancestors. This is the main intention behind Pitru Karya. The Garuda Purana is an authority with regard to Pitru Karma. It mentions the duty of children in this way: “While the parents are alive, they have to be pleased with pleasant words. When they pass away, they have to be gratified with rice offerings. The offerings of rice and Tila in the Gaya pilgrimage place is the greatest duty of the children.” (#GarudaPurana)
It may be noted here that our #Puranas not only speak of after-death duties, but also moral and social responsibility when the parents are living. In one way, the son or daughter is a reflection of his/her ancestors: “#Atma vai #Putranamasi”.

Ganesha é caracterizado por ter uma cabeça de elefante e corpo de gente. É também popularmente conhecido como Senhor dos Obstáculos (ou o removedor deles).
Ganesha tem cabeça de elefante que simboliza o contentamento, paz e maturidade. As orelhas simbolizam aquilo que é certo e o que é errado e a sua tromba no meio remete ao discernimento e à perícia em conduzir uma vida adequada. Ganesha possui apenas um dente em um gesto de auto-doação.
Ele tem quatro braços. Na primeira mão segura o dente quebrado. Na segunda o atiçador de elefantes e na terceira o laço – estas ferramentas servem para nos motivar/”por para frente” e para nos freiar/”por no centro”. Na quarta mão ele apresenta o Varada Mudra, um gesto de Benção.
Há diversas outras interpretações para as simbologias e fábulas (Puranas) que envolvem Ganesha. O importante é entrar em contato e acessar a força necessária.
OM GAN GANAPATAYE NAMAH!
