Lord Nadarasar is a depiction of the Tamilar God Shiva as the divine dancer. His dance is called Tandavam. Lord Natarasar, is a form of the Hindu god Shiva as the cosmic dancer. In this form, Shiva performs the Ananda Tandavam, the dance of bliss, symbolizing creation, preservation, and destruction. Natarasar is depicted with multiple arms, holding various symbolic items, including the damaru (Udukkai) to mark the rhythm of the dance, fire representing destruction, the gesture of assurance (abhaya mudra), and the uplifted foot symbolizing liberation. The dance symbolizes the cosmic cycles of birth and death and the continual flow of energy. Natarasar is revered as the supreme embodiment of art, music, and the cosmic order (dharma). This form of Shiva represents both the beauty and the cosmic significance of the dance of existence.
