Dance of Shiva - the so-called dance of the Hindu Shiva Nataraja cosmic creation (Lord of the Dance), in which he creates and destroys the cosmos. Dancing on the body of the demon of ignorance, he creates a Universe in a halo of flame istuplenno own dance of bliss. Drum (dammar) creates and maintains the cosmic rhythm, fire symbolizes the inner knowledge, a skull - a victory over death, and the snake - curbed the power of kundalini. Abhaya mudra in her right hand bestows fearlessness and blessings. The fire around Nataraja represents manifest Universe.
In Hinduism, mantra sounds, spoken in Sanskrit, are endowed with divine power. They are able to influence the mental state of man, and even physical reality, creating or transforming matter. In the words of Terence McKenna: "The syntactical nature of reality, the real secret of magic, is that the world is made of words. And if you know the words that the world is made of, you can make of it whatever you wish."
