Roadmaps to joy!

Shiv Tandav Stotram, Sanskrit video

Sung by Ramesh Bhai Ojha

I heard this first at Haridwar where a couple of teenaged Sanskrit scholars sang this joyously and very beautifully in a tiny Shiva temple on the banks of River Ganga. This was post sunset at Ram Dham, Niranjani Akhara Road. The ghat closes for the night after this evening prayer, and I was about the only one left to witness this beautiful rendition which the boys sang as an expression of joy. It was amazing to hear them sing this Sanskrit stotra written by King Ravana (of Ramayan fame).
