Meaning of Shiv Tandav Stotram(शिव तांडव स्तोत्रम)
LyricsIf we look into our mythology, we will know that the original Shiv Tandav Stotram Lyrics was written by none other than Ravana, the demon king. Although he was portrayed as the villain, he had the blessings of many Gods for his dedication and pious nature. In this song, he described the look of Shiva. Shiva has the neck twirled around his neck, and River Ganga flows out from his Jataa or bun. He has the Damru in his hand, which he starts playing. The sound of the Damru is considered the death knell of the world, and people fear death when they hear its sound.
The Shiv Tandav Lyrics speaks about all the deeds of Lord Shiva, how he destroyed Andhaka and overwhelmed Yama, the God of death. He has left all his family ties and worldly belonging and lived the life of an ascetic. He seeks greater knowledge and serenity and has Goddess Parvati by his side as his wife.
People know about the story of his Tandav. He was married to Sati, the youngest daughter of Daksha. Sati was an ardent devotee of Lord Shiva, after which she fell in love with him. Shiva, too, was in deep love with Sati. Their love was ethereal but was not accepted by Daksha. Daksha had a severe tussle with Lord Shiva and never lost a chance to humiliate him. Finally, Daksha arranged for a huge Yagya, or Puja, to invite all the gods and goddesses. However, Lord Shiva was not invited to the Puja. Daksha also humiliated Lord Shiva in front of the other gods and goddesses. Sati could not bear the humiliation and set herself on fire.
On learning about the entire incident, Lord Shiva was enraged to the extreme. He started the Tandav Nritya, which spelled doom for the world. He carried the dead body of Lordess Sati on his back while he danced. It is written in the religious texts that while he was dancing, different kinds of fierce natural calamities like earthquakes, volcanic eruptions took place in different parts of the world. All the gods feared the end of the world and went to Lord Vishnu for help. He cut off Sati?s body into several parts and distributed it all over the country to cool Lord Shiva. The places where each of these body parts fell are called Piths.
