Lord Nataraja or Natesa is an attribute of Lord Shiva. His enthralling cosmic dance “Ananda Tandavam” is a symbol of the rhythm of existence, the never ending dynamic process of creation and destruction-the ever changing evolution. He is worshipped in as representing the five elements earth, water, fire, wind and ether, Chidambaram is unique in that. He is the first and foremost God of all Arts and Sciences. He has four arms: One right hand holds the “Damaru” symbol of creation through the primordial sound; in one of the left hands, the purifying fire, symbol of transformation; the other right hand makes the reassuring gesture; the other left hand, the protecting gesture; his left foot, lifted up, evokes liberation and salvation; his right foot crushes the demon of ignorance and evil. The Lotus pedestal on which the image rests locates this universe in the heart of consciousness of each person. Prayers to Lord Nataraja bestows the power to compose poems, to shine in Music and Dance fields, to circumvent completion’s in the field, to escape evil thoughts from any quarters and to attain Prosperity, Peace and Pleasure!
