The Dance of Shiva and Sub Atomic Particles

Lord Shiva veritably presided over the world’s largest experiment as scientists today sent the first beam of protons zooming at nearly the speed of light around the world’s most powerful particle accelerator at the CERN laboratory near Geneva in search of the ‘God particle’.

Next to the 2 M. statue of the dancing Shiva or Nataraj at the European Center for Research in Particle Physics in Geneva is a plaque that explains the connection: “It is the clearest image of the activity of God which any art or religion can boast of” … “Hundreds of years ago, Indian artists created visual images of dancing Shivas in a beautiful series of bronzes. In our time, physicists have used the most advanced technology to portray the patterns of the cosmic dance. The metaphor of the cosmic dance thus unifies ancient mythology, religious art and modern physics.” Shiva may be the lord of destruction in Hindu mythology, but it’s not the end of the world as some naysayers predicted about this big-bang experiment.

A special plaque next to the Shiva statue at CERN explains the significance of the metaphor of Shiva’s cosmic dance with several quotations from The Tao of Physics. Here is the text of the plaque:

Ananda K. Coomaraswamy, seeing beyond the unsurpassed rhythm, beauty, power and grace of the Nataraja, once wrote of it “It is the clearest image of the activity of God which any art or religion can boast of.”

“Modern physics has shown that the rhythm of creation and destruction is not only manifest in the turn of the seasons and in the birth and death of all living creatures, but is also the very essence of inorganic matter,” and that “For the modern physicists, then, Shiva’s dance is the dance of subatomic matter.”

“Hundreds of years ago, Indian artists created visual images of dancing Shivas in a beautiful series of bronzes. In our time, physicists have used the most advanced technology to portray the patterns of the cosmic dance. The metaphor of the cosmic dance thus unifies ancient mythology, religious art and modern physics.
