About Shiva Tandava
Shiva Tandava Stotram (शिवताण्डवस्तोत्रम्) is a stotra (Hindu hymn) which describes the God Shiva's power and beauty. It is traditionally attributed to Ravana, the rakshasa (demon) king of Lanka and devotee of Shiva. Both of the ninth and tenth quatrains of this hymn conclude with list of Shiva's epithets as destroyer, even the destroyer of death itself. Alliteration and onomatopoeia create roiling waves of resounding beauty in an example of Hindu devotional poetry.
