Pensive Lord Shiva.... ~ *In Penance* ~ A long time, Now it has been, While time's winds blow. He was my shelter and protection, When storms were unkind, There was serenity here, Where the clearest waters of the Earth flow, They gifted me with purity and calming peace of mind. A Friend to me, For my days here were made sweet by the Lord's prescence; In Spirit, Truth, Works & Rhythm, Our hearts were united together during this time... of Penance. ~ Jai Krishna Ponnappan
“He is the source of light in all luminous objects. He is beyond the darkness of matter and is unmanifested. He is knowledge, He is the object of knowledge, and He is the goal of knowledge. He is situated in everyone's heart.”
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.
