QotD: Nataraja

When Shiva the Great Yogin chooses
to become the Lord of the Dance, Nataraja,
the universe appears as Consciousness
in its most ecstatic forms:
as art and play, as knowledge and beauty,
as the very embodiment of awareness
in the form of the Self.


—From
Clothed in Consciousness:
Nataraja in the Tantric Tradition

by Dr. Douglas Brooks
