Nataraja at Bhoganandishwara Temple, Bangalore


Shiva, without any beginning or end, is the Supreme Creator of the Universe. Lord Shiva is known by a thousand names and is worshiped in  many forms. One such form is that of Nataraja, or King of Dance.

Whenever the Universe is debilitated and needs to be renewed, Lord Shiva performs his cosmic dance and prepares the Universe for rebirth….

Even in ourselves, we need to continuously undertake this process of cleaning and remove all that is negative and bad and renew ourselves to a greater future….

The above photograph is a beautiful sculpture of Lord Nataraja at the Bhoganandeeshwara Temple near Nandi Hills at Bangalore. The temple is said to be mentioned in copper plate writings from around 800  AD, making the temple about 1200 years old.
