Dance is Timeless, Ancient, Historic
If we seek the real source of the dance, if we go to nature, we find that the dance of the future is the dance of the past, the dance of eternity, and has been and always will be the same... The movement of waves, of winds, of the earth is ever the same lasting harmony ISADORA
Dance Is Universal
The Nāṭya Śāstra is notable as encyclopedic treatise on the arts, one and has influenced dance, music and literary traditions in India. It is notable for its aesthetic "Rasa" theory, which asserts that entertainment is a desired effect of performance arts but not the primary goal, and that the primary goal is to transport the individual and audience into another reality, full of wonder, where he experiences the essence of his own consciousness, and reflects on spiritual and moral questions.
True Dance is Timeless
Ancient Text on Dance
“There are many passages in the Rig Veda, indicating the highly developed art of dance, and compared to many of nature’s phenomenon. The dancer holding an important position in the society. All religious and auspicious rites, required her presence. Such as the birth of sanctity and immortality is symbolised by the Purna Kumbha. Oh, fair damsel, bring hither to us the Purna Kumbha, filled with streams of clarified butter blend with nectar”.

Dance is Spiritual
To appreciate her aesthetic, it should be noted that in Indian dance styles they work within a contained external space while expanding the internal space. It is in the philosophy of the art, connected with its ritual practices, that the dancers journey is viewed as meditative progression, in unlocking the internal doors to enlightenment thru dance and artistic expression. Each motion and pose has meaning or symbol
Dance is Cosmic
Revelation 12:1 Verse Concepts
A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars;
ॐ पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदं पूर्णात्पूर्णमुदच्यते ।
पूर्णस्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते ॥
ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥
Om Puurnnam-Adah Puurnnam-Idam Puurnnaat-Puurnnam-Udacyate |
Puurnnasya Puurnnam-Aadaaya Puurnnam-Eva-Avashissyate ||
Om Shaantih ||
All this is full. All that is full. From fullness, fullness comes. When fullness is taken from fullness, fullness still remains. Peace
Veda means to Know, Knowledge. The Vedas is not Hinduism. The greatest concentration of the Vedic Tradition deals more with knowledge versus belief. Ayurveda Medicine, healthy living, meditation, yoga, Sanskrit, and Vastu/Healthy buildings etc., all come from Vedic knowledge. Hinduism developed in India as a religion but Vedic knowledge is more fundamental and universal to all.
The core understanding of Vedic Knowledge is- Consciousness is the only reality. You are consciousness. All knowledge emerges from consciousness, is structured in consciousness. The Universe, including ourselves, exists in consciousness.
Meditation is a route, a way to experience more fully our own consciousness, the greater universal consciousness and the nature of consciousness.
Vedic Knowledge provides answers to all unanswered questions i.e why there is pain and pleasure, rich and poor, healthy and sick; God - His qualities, nature and works. Soul – Its nature and qualities, souls of humans and animals; reincarnation – how does it happen, why one is born as he or she is. What is the purpose of life? What we ought to do?
The four main texts in the Vedic tradition are Rigveda · Atharvaveda · Yajurveda Samaveda
They correspond to the four directions in the mind completing the cosmic circle of universal knowledge. The oldest of the Vedas, the Rigveda, is focused on cosmic structure.
“Vedas are the most rewarding and the most elevating book which can be possible in the world.” Arthur Schopenhauer
The Veda texts state that truth, non-violence, patience, penance and spiritual uplift are the foundations of a human life. The Upanishads are largely philosophical works, some in dialogue form. They are the foundation of Hindu philosophical thought and its diverse traditions. Of the Vedic corpus, they alone are widely known, and the central ideas of the Upanishads are at the spiritual core of Hindus.
