“Hydration time for Lord Nataraja is only 6 times a year. The yogis and siddhas look forward to this time so that they can take advantage of connecting with Nataraj. The time has been sacred for the energy of Shiva to come into the earth plane.”
The divine dance of Nataraja in the golden hall of consciousness is referred to as ‘Ananda Tandava’, the Cosmic Dance of Bliss.
Six times a year, the energy of Nataraja becomes active on the Earth plane. Early winter, late winter, early summer, high summer, during the rainy and autumn seasons (six seasons) which coincides with the dawn, morning, noon, afternoon, evening and night times in heaven.
It is important to perform Nataraja Abishekam on these auspicious days to honor and invite this transformational energy of Shiva into our lives.
The dynamic energy of Nataraja can eradicate old, negative patterns limiting our potential and remove the bad effects of karma. The gestures of his cosmic dance represent Lord Shiva’s five divine activities:
It is all in the timing and this upcoming Full Moon, November 14, 2016 IST has been identified as a prime time to remove your difficulties. By participating in the Rice-Abishekam ceremony to Shiva, it is believed that your previous birth karma can be cleansed, thereby, giving you a chance to move closer towards salvation.
During this once-a-year ceremony to Lord Shiva, the entire Shiva Lingam is covered with cooked rice. The life-sustaining energy and life-nourishing qualities of rice invoke the power of Lord Shiva to come into the Shiva Lingam, a symbol of His energy and power.
Dr. Pillai says that hydration ceremony is the most powerful in making the statue of dancing Shiva come alive by pouring milk, yoghurt, ghee (clarified butter), and orange juice. He also says that it is not a superstition to pour these substances, but that these rituals bring the statue to life- which then has the power to answer your prayers and connect you with higher consciousness.
Your sincere prayers and participation in the ceremony doubles the effect of the dissolution of karmas and to strengthen your life with powerful positive energies.
Transform yourself with the karma-removing and life-sustaining energies of Shiva during the special power days of Nataraja Abishekam and Anna Abishekam. The rituals will be performed on October 15, 2016 and November 14, 2016. Propitiating Shiva during these special days will be very effective to access his pure, boundless energy to bring significant improvements in our lives.
