Dancing Natraj The figure of Natraj is often shown dancing enclosed in a burning circle. The burning circle represents the cosmic energy Natraj creates and channels. His energy and enthusiasm are said to destroy the old and create new life. His dance is said to represent the energy and life cycle of the universe. Additionally, it is said that Shiva's dancing (as Natraj) is the energy that keeps the universe running, and that if he ever stops dancing the universe will cease to exist.
