Arudra Darshan at the Sydney Murugan Temple



Arudra Darshan was celebrated at the Sydney Murugan Temple starting from 3.45am with Thirupalli Ellichi. Over 200 people participated in the Arudra Darshan in January 2007.

Significance of Arudra Darshan

The cosmic dance of Lord Shiva (Nataraja) represents five activities – Creation, Protection, Destruction, Embodiment and Release. In essence, it represents the continuous cycle of creation and apocalypse. This cosmic dance takes place in every particle and this is the source of all energy. The movement of Lord Shiva is Shakti. Hence, Arudra Darshan is celebrated in appreciation of the cosmic dance of Lord Shiva.
