ShriNathji as a Dancer


ShriNathji’s svaroop is often said to be that of Shri Krushna dancing during the MahaRasa or the while he was dancing on the head of the Kaliya naga.  So in either case, ShriNathji's svaroop is that of the Lord dancing.   

Iconographically, flying ends of his scarf, flared and swirling skirt, swinging braid are all indication of the vigorous nature of this divine dance.  Maybe to indicate his dance pose, his feet are shown splayed - sideways - in ancient paintings.

(In classical Indian dance forms like Bharat Natyam, legs are bent at the knees and the feet are splayed.)
