Ref. Tandava Nritya* please see my Blog posted on 17th Feb Tandava Nritya or the Dance of ...
Prelude of this story is given in part 1 of the epic.
When the Earth was in danger 4 of
When her beautiful feet’s, touched the ground with a thrilling rhythm,
To perform the best of their skills and the magic of her body and mind,
She started her best the most eloquent steps, no one could follow that day,
As Urvashi was performing an art, which no one has ever performed. 14
A unique dance to match the rhythms of Shiva’s Tandava Nritya*, which
No one was capable to watch, such was the speed & elegance of her dance,
Even Gods and Goddesses too, could not understand what was happening,
Such was the beauty of her moving hands, thrilling body, her legs, feet’s and
The grace and beauty of Urvashi’s unprecedented magical dance. 15
To enchant Lord Shiva*, the Nature’s beauty and its wine splashed so high,
That it touched the sky, wetting everything in its mood and flavor,
To fill the atmosphere more intoxicating, than the Sura* of heaven,
Everyone was only standing astonished, stunned with eyes wide opened. 16
When Urvashi’s feet’s touched the ground, no one could understand and
When the drumbeats started to match her fleeing steps, again no one could follow,
The season had changed by then, by the presence of Basant* and
The Earth too began to play, a lofty musical notes on the ground and air,
To spread the intoxicating music and fragrance all around in the air. 17
By then the spectators of that divine dance, had lost their senses,
By the flowing intoxication everywhere in the air,
This unique happening on Earth, no one could ever understand completely,
As Spring had swept away the mind and their hearts, and
The senses of everyone were under the complete influence of
Lord Shiva’s favorites, Nature, the Earth and the season of Spring. 18
