Kedar said : …. Tandav dance of Shiva is a dance of destruction. Shiva has another name ARDHA NARI NATESHWARA- half man and half woman. he is female and male at the same time. He is both. He is complete. And since he is COMPLETE, it is very difficult to understand SHIVA. But you have understood him. You can see universe in terms on Tandav dance of Shiva that means you are able to see the CONTRADICTIONS! you can understand the CHAOS. And through this understanding the struggle to break the structure has started.
No Kedar, I have not. But am trying perhaps not to understand as much as to get into harmony with the Tandav dance of Shiva. To be both male and female at the same time ? I think the representations of the words go beyond the literal meanings as used in language. Male is the force of destruction and uncontrolled action (fire), and female is the force of nurturing (water). In the conflict of the forces arises creativity. The creativity of our Universe.
They are counterbalancing forces never totally in harmony. For if they were, our universe would be inert. like the Dead Sea. But it is not is it ? It is constantly at play. Why ? I am ot sure, except consciousness exists as a result of that play. Everything in a process of fluid change. Impermanence.
