Ananda Siva Natanam 2 - The World Is Siva's Stage

Poem By Dr. Geeta Radhakrishna Menon

The whole world is Siva's stage,
The devotees to revel and rage,
To watch His dance in trance,
To thrill in His wild prance,
A vision of wonder,
A glimpse of thunder,
As he dances with a playful glance,
And performs the celestial dance!

Dhvam Dhvam - Dhem Dhem,
Dhimi Dhimi - Dhimi Taka,
Dhom Dhom - Dhom Taka,
Djam Djam - Djam Taka.

Damaru - Siva's favourite percussion,
Drum that pulsates with a mission,
Dynamic rhythm with complicated beats,
Decoding mysterious numbers in pleats,
Developing a calculated splendour,
Deliberately avoiding a mathematical blunder,
Deriving at a musical parody,
Designing a pleasing melody!

Dhvam Dhvam - Dhem Dhem,
Dhimi Dhimi - Dhimi Taka,
Dhom Dhom - Dhom Taka,
Djam Djam - Djam Taka.

Siva dances in Kailasa- the abode of God,
Siva dances in the snowy mountains of Lords,
Siva dances in heaven - the dance of flash,
Siva dances in burial grounds - the dance of ash,
Siva dances the thrilling dance of breath,
Siva dances the horrendous dance of death,
Siva dances on earth with merriment,
Siva dances everywhere with amusement!

I am becoming a Siva scholar through you Dr. Geeta. Thank you for awakening more spiritual awareness in me.
Of course Shiva's cosmic dance is a thrill and a vision of a mathematical wonder..the poem reverberates magnanimously with its special solkattu...thanks Geeta for sharing such superb poems with all your great efforts- 100
Siva dances in burial grounds - the dance of ash, Siva dances the thrilling dance of breath, Siva dances the horrendous dance of death, Siva dances on earth with merriment, Siva dances everywhere with amusement! .........Siva dances with merriment and amusement and he dances for the blessing to people. A beautiful poem shared startlingly.
Nucleus of the entire universe is Brahma with proton as Vishnu Shiva is the master of electrons that dances in various orbits and determines properties of living and non living things. Protons are the balancing and controlling the negative charge of the electrons. When these electrons flow under control we get useful electrical energy and nuclear energy. Nuclear weapons are the third eye of Shiva. We the Muslims believe Allah is ancient and Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva are three of the infinite faces of Allah.(The ancient Mata Shakti) . I couldn't find any reason to fight for beliefs when all say the same thing in one way or the other..
