Geeta Chandran trains eyes on 'Bhakti' for Bharatanatyam

New Delhi, June 28 (TIWN) In an autobiographical solo performance, Bharatanatyam guru and Padma Shri recipient Geeta Chandran will explore the spiritual and personal notions of 'Bhakti', and narrate how it has impacted her life.

Titled 'Samagama Leela', the dance performance will explore the deep influence Bhakti had on her childhood and her journey through life as a classical dancer, at the India International Centre here on Saturday.  "Since the very stirrings of culture in India, spirituality and search for meaning have defined our people. The Vedic rituals and prayers crafted by our ancestors paid tribute to the wonder of nature. This 'wonder' is what Bhakti actually is," Chandran told IANS over email.  On a similar note, the dance institution Natya Vriksha founder said that Bharatanatyam as a dance form was born as part of temple rituals as part of the elaborate temple rituals of southern India.
