Arudra Darshanam – Thrusday, January 9, 2020

The ten day Thiruvempavai ends on January 9th 2020,  with Thiruvadirai Nombu, also known as Arudra Darisanam.

On this auspicious day, our temple is organizing a special Abishekam and Thiru Veethi Ula for Lord Natarajar.

Arudhra Darshan, or Arudara Darisanam, is observed on the Tamil month of Margazhi. It is essentially a Shaivite festival and celebrates the cosmic dance of Lord Shiva, which is represented by the Nataraja form. Arudhra signifies the golden red flame, which Shiva performs the dance in the form of this red-flamed light.

The cosmic dance of Lord Shiva represents five activities – Creation, Protection, Destruction, Embodiment and Release. In essence, it represents the continuous cycle of creation and destruction. This cosmic dance takes place in every particle and is the source of all energy. Arudra Darshan celebrates this ecstatic dance of Lord Shiva.
