Shiva Tandava Stotra

Śiva Tāṇḍava Stotra of Rāvaṇa. This was the stotra which he recited to obtain the Vaidyanātha Jyotirliñga (a.k.a Baijnāth). Rāvaṇa would have become immortal if that jyotirliñga had reached Śrī Lanka. This is the teaching he gave to attain mokṣa finally at the hands of Lord Rāma. This stotra must be recited in the end of the prayers, meditation or pūjā. Students of the Śiva Purāṇa course (ŚIVA Group of Zoran Radosavljevic, 2010) were taught this stotra recitation by Sarbani Rath.

The detailed translation was given in the old Jyotish Digest.

Value of Tolerance

As a natural state of mind, tolerance indicates an ability to coexist with others, to respect alternative points of view, to neither dominate nor be dominated. It suggests both the ability to be yourself as well as allow others that freedom. It is both sturdy individuality and acceptance of other points of view [Life Positive]. Suma Varughese writes that “Differences create gaps, but we need to reap love, not hatred, out of diversity. And to do so, we need to relearn the long forgotten value of tolerance”.
