According to Hindu traditional belief that Lord Shiva is the ruler of all dancers. He was a specialist in the thandava style of moving. This is an overwhelming masculine style of moving. This shiv tandav stotra is about him while in the demonstration of moving. Similar sounding word usage and likeness in sound make annoying floods of reverberating magnificence in this incredible stotra.
This stotra which is so superb was created by none other than Ravana, the evil presence ruler, who ruled over Sri Lanka, who was one of the great devotees of Lord Shiva. Once the glad Ravana vanquished the whole India and drew nearer Mount Kailas on top of which Lord Shiva lives with his consort Goddess Parvathi.
Ravana called Lord Shiva to descend. When he didn’t, he evacuated the mountain with his twenty hands. This made Goddess Parvathi unsteady. At that point Lord Shiva pushed down the mountain with his thumb. Ravana was smashed by the heaviness of the mountain. There he adulated Lord Shiva by singing the Sama Veda and this extraordinary stotra made by him. Ruler Shiva was pleased andpardoned him.
