Dear silence,


It is said that Self on realization is said to dance as I, I, I,... How can an achalam (non moving) dance?  It is the anubhava sphuranam
that make the Self realized persons that the Self dances as I, I, I,....  It is called Achala Natanam. 

Arunachala  Siva.

Also called ajapa natanam in tiruvarur.

What bliss even visualizing that dance!

Dear deepa,

Ajapa means not-Japa.  What does it mean.  It is telling mantra Om (AUM) within lips.  In Tirumandiram (Tirumoolar) it is said
that Ajapa means breathing.  The breath of every person in entering makes the sound 'sah' and in coming out that of 'ham'.
These two sounds make Soham. I am He.  or Hamsah meaning the great Swan.  In Tiruvarur, Siva's dance is called Hamsa
Natanam or Ajapa Natanam, because He dances only for the living beings to breathe in and breathe out.  There are, for a normal
person, 21,600 such respirations.  Every living being performs the silent japa in such a way that it is thanksgiving for Siva
for keeping the body and soul together!  (Source: Tirumandiram - Tantra 4)

Arunachala Siva.
