This composition sings praise of Shiva Thandava, with a jathi bringing in a dramatic effect. Listen to also "Nrithyathi Nrithyathi" on the same theme.

In the CITRASABHA, Lord SANKARA-the god of mountain is dancing.
With the holy ash and third eye on the forehead, the garland of RUDRAKSHA adorning the neck, He dances along with BHRNGI and other BHUTA GANA-s.
The celestials and ascetics appear on the sky, playing the instruments with the sound of TANANA-TANANA and GHUM-GHUM'.
Even the crores of Cupids feel ashamed witnessing SIVA dancing beautifully. DHRKUTA DHIM-DHRNNA BHAJE.
With the perfect melody and LAYA, He dwells in the heart of lord PADMANABHA.

(Translation by Dr. T.K Govinda Rao)
