About The Book

The Dance of Siva is a complete account of Siva's Dance of Bliss, which is based on a remarkable Sanskrit poem written by Umapati 8ivacarya, Saiva theologian and temple priest, about 1300 AD. Siva is one of the two main Gods of Hinduism. This book deals with the famous Chola Nataraja bronze, today the best-known Hindu image, the key location of Siva's Dance in South India, and the temple of Cidambaram. David Smith explores all aspects of Nataraja and the Goddess, the temple, its priests and rituals. Relevant contemporary art from Cidambaram and neighbouring sites illuminates the text.
