Om namah shivay. This picture remind me of our visit to HARIDWAR... what a experience that was...!!! you will not believe we were just 5 friends on the bank of mother GANGA. Its was like it was a special appointment with MAHADEV.
In the cosmic dance, His one foot is planted over and crushes the giant Muyalaka i.e. Maha Maya, the endless illusion which is the cause of birth and death. The other foot is raised upward and represents the turiya state which is beyond and above the three states of waking, dream and dreamless sleep, and leaves behind, the mind, Maya and the world.
