Shiva personified a dynamic universe. In the Hindu scripture, Kurma-Purana, Shiva says, "I am the originator, the god abiding in supreme bliss. I, the yogi, dance eternally."
Shiva is a study in contrasts. He symbolizes both contemplation and action. He is often shown deep in meditation as a mendicant yogi.
In this Najaraja statue, Shiva is depicted performing his cosmic dance that combines, in a single image, his many roles as creator, preserver and destroyer of the universe and conveys the Indian conception of the never-ending cycle of time.
This circle of fire and light reminds us to dance through our problems! Whenever the challenges of life seem overwhelming, invoke the effervescent joy of SHIVA!
