Natraj is one of the names of the Hindu god, Shiva, the most revered god in this ancient religion.The image of Natraj is also known as "dancing Shiva".Natraj is sometimes referred to as "the dancer of creation, lord of joy and sorrow." The dancing image captured in popular statues is meant to symbolize life's ebb and flow.It also reminds us of the balance between form and void, as well as the time before the divine created form from the void.The two most common forms of Shiva's dance are the Lasya (the gentle form of dance), associated with the creation of the world, and the Tandava (the violent and dangerous dance), associated with the destruction of weary worldviews - weary perspectives and lifestyles. In essence, the Lasya and the Tandava are just two aspects of Shiva's nature; for he destroys in order to create, tearing down to build again. The statues of Natraj are framed by a circle representing cosmic energy.If you look closely at a status of this Hindu god, you will see that Natraj stands upon a demon, which symbolizes triumph over spiritual ignorance.
