Manobuddhyahaṃkāra chittāni nāhaṃ
na cha śrotrajihve na cha ghrāṇanetre
na cha vyoma bhūmir na tejo
na vāyuḥchidānandarūpaḥ śivo'ham śivo'ham.
I am not the mind, Intelligence, sense of 'I'.
I am not the sense organs.
I am not the elements.
I am "Shiva" (SatChitAnanda) beyond all these.
" Dance is the elixir of my life"
From Primeval times,
the human being has been able to conceptualise the magnitude of life and spirituality.
The infinity of time and space, the subtleties of human physical form combined with the spirit,
mind and emotions: and express this melding of mind, body and soul through the magic of dance.
For me the future of my sacrifice for dance lies in the endless possibilities and pathways....,
that the artistic expression can uplift the human condition from all its mundanities
to the height of universal transcendental communication and sharing
