Life is a Dance of Shakti and Shiva A beautiful picture of Shiva and Parvati in dance, curiously with the background of Shiva again , as Natraja, The King of dance. And this catches our interest, What is the painting trying to convey? To me it is a very beautiful concept of pictorially conveying the greatness of Shakti. I bring your attention to the word Maya.

Nataraja Symbology. A depiction of the 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. Dancing is seen as an art in which the artist and the art s/he creates are one and the same, thought to evoke the oneness of God and creation.

"Do you know who 'god' is? God is not Vishnu or Shiva or Brahma; not the wind, the sun nor the moon; nor the brahmana or the king; not I or you; not Lakshmi or the mind. God is without form and undivided (not in the objects); that splendor which is not made and which has neither beginning nor end is known as god, or Lord Shiva, which is pure consciousness. That alone is fit to be worshipped; that alone is all." Sage Vasishtha
