The TANDAVA #MahaShivratri Special

ॐ नमः शिवाय

The world bows to Lord Shiva, I bow to lord shiva

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.

Jingle bells

Ho ho ho

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh
Ladies and gentlemen
I give you the jingle bass

Merry Christmas

Dashing through the snow
On a one horse open sleigh
O’er the fields we go
Laughing all the way

Bells on bobtail ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh

Ho ho ho

Making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight

Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh

Christmas long ago (Tis’ the season special)

Frosty days and ice-still nights,
Fir trees trimmed with tiny lights,
Sound of sleigh bells in the snow,
That was Christmas long ago.

Tykes on sleds and shouts of glee,
Icy-window filigree,
Sugarplums and candle glow,
Part of Christmas long ago.

Footsteps stealthy on the stair,
Sweet-voiced carols in the air,
Stocking hanging in a row,
Tell of Christmas long ago.

Starry nights so still and blue,
Good friends calling out to you,
Life, so fact, will always slow…
For dreams of Christmas long ago.

Thanksgiving

When the Halloween pumpkins are gone,
And the leaves have all fallen to ground,
When the air has turned windy and cold,
Then Thanksgiving will soon be around.

Thoughts of loved ones all feasting together,
Pleasant pictures from past times appear
To dwell in each heart and each mind–
Then Thanksgiving is finally here!

The kitchen has scrumptious aromas,
The dining room looks oh, so fine,
Decorations with pilgrims and turkeys,
And now we are ready to dine!

First the napkins are placed on our laps;
Now the prayer for the meal to be blessed,
Then we stuff the good food in our tummies,
And we hope for it all to digest!
