ॐ Shiva Nataraj Prayer Shawl
These lightweight cotton shawls are handmade in Nepal by women artisans who are part of a fair trade cottage industry network. The shawls are made in a traditional hand-loom and are block printed with OM (ॐ) and Shiva Nataraj patterns. The gauge-airy technique (tiny loopholes) allows the fabric to breathe making this a great accessory for mild weather. These multipurpose shawls can be accessorized with various clothing as a scarf, headpiece or sarong and can be used for meditation, prayer and yoga.
This beautiful mantra shawl depicts a traditional design printed with sacred OM symbols (Hindu/Sanskrit word) and the mantra "OM Namah Shivaya" and features a block print of Lord Shiva as the Lord of Dance. Shiva is the supreme reality, the inner Self. It is the name given to consciousness that dwells in all. Shiva is the name of your true identity- your self.The Shiva Nataraj (Shiva as Lord of Dance) represents Shiva's roles as creator, preserver and destroyer.
Om is the sound of oneness or dissolving into the universe.
