Clothed in Consciousness: Nataraja in the Tantric Tradition 4 CD Set

by Douglas Brooks

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. In Nataraja's symbolism and mythology we find gateways that lead to the very heart of our divine nature and access the power that lies at the very core of reality. At the boundaries of his form we find the drum of creation and the fire of dissolution; in the center we are supported by the sustaining energies of his dynamic, rear leg and offered the imprint, the mudra that invites us to fearless yoga. With his arm crossing his heart, we are led into the powers of concealment that create the appearances of a world and point to the gift of grace itself, represented in his gentle up-turned foot. As we learn to see ourselves as Nataraja, we come to recognize the human form as the divine clothed in Consciousness and yoga as the immortal choosing human experience.
