Dancing Shiva with a Trishul
Shiva is judged as the best dancer in the universe. His grace and vigor knows
no bounds when the famous Tandava is being performed. But Tandava is reputed
to be the dance of destruction. When the earth shudders under his thundering footsteps,
when the wind becomes a thunderstorm in his tossing long hair locks, when the
heavens melt in the heat generated by his movements, when the waters flood the
earth with the graceful hand gestures, Tandava is the dance of Shiva before
the awesome destructions of this universe begins.
