Importance of Shiva Tandava Stotram

Shiva Tandava Stotram is an important prayer dedicated to God Shiva. Ravana, the demon king in the Ramayana, is believed to have composed the Stotra. The hymn glorifies Shiva as the Supreme Brahman.

Ravana was arrogant with his powers. So to impress Shiva, He once attempted to lift the Kailash Mountain. Shiva to quell the arrogance of Ravana simply placed his toe on the mountain. Ravana’s fingers were crushed in the attempt and he could not remove it from under the HolyMountain.
To remove his fingers and escape from the pain and impending death, Ravana sang the Shiva Tandava Stotram.
Pleased with the Stotram, Shiva saved Ravana and blessed him with the Chandrahas, a powerful weapon.
It is also stated that Ravana who was an ardent devotee of Shiva used to sing the Stotram daily to the accompaniment of Ravanahatha, a bowed fiddle that he had made.
