Arudra Darshan: When the Energies of Rudra (Shiva) Come Close To Earth
The cosmic dance of Lord Nataraj (Lord Shiva) represents five actions — creation, protection, destruction, embodiment and release. It also proves that life is a continuous cycle of creation and destruction. In every atom to every cell, life goes on and energy seems to exist in them. Without movement life stops and comes to a standstill. This is exactly is what Arudra Darshan is all about. The cosmic dance takes place in every particle as it is the source of energy. Arudra Darshan celebrates this rapturous movement/dance of Lord Shiva.
Arudra Darshan is observed on Thiruvadirai star and celebrated on a full Moon day, this time January 10, 2020, also has the longest night of the year.
Lord Shiva’s dance not only transports the devotees to ecstasy, it also reminds everyone of the higher purpose of life i.e. moving from evanescent to eternity. It is also believed that on this day the Lord’s energy is closest to the earth. Therefore, Lord Shiva’s blessings are 100% assured for the devotee.
