Ananda Siva Natanam 1 - The Blissful Dance Of Siva
Poem By Dr. Geeta Radhakrishna Menon
Dance of Siva is ‘Ananda'- indescribable joy!
Dances with power projecting a
Dancing ‘Jeevas' with their lives and
Delectable play of kaleidoscopic wonder
Dancing to Siva's creative genius!
The dance of Siva is ‘Ananda Siva Natanam'
The dance of immeasurable bliss - ‘Paramananda'!
The whole world becomes His stage
The moon - His crescent shaped jewel
The stars - His sparkling ornaments
The powerful bull- ‘Nandi' -His vehicle
The snakes coiled round his neck as
The guardian angels!
Siva opens his eyes and commands the world to
Stand up, wake up and be alert with His
Sensational beats of dynamic rhythm!
Such amazing beats of rhythm that
Sustains the breath of every little heart!
Siva dances with amazing vigour,
Saintly Performance of a holy dance with
Sounds of joyful exuberance!
The creation of ‘Spandan'-
The first sound vibration of this world,
The symphony of ‘Aum'
The holy vibration for
The world to meditate!
The inspiring ‘Nada' and ‘Svara'
The soulful refrain flowing as
The divine melody to merge with Siva's blissful dance!
He dances the ‘Ananda Siva Natanam'
Heralding a new dawn with His orange robe!
He occupies the seven worlds with
His colossal, expansive, golden body!
He dwells in His seven abodes with
Healing colours of a rainbow;
He whirls like a super dancer with
His own creation of this fantastic world!
