2Enakshi Ganguly = "Laying down is the Creator, while seated on the lotus is the Destroyer and Time, both seen as darkness, destruction, and liberation. Sitting around the Creator are various other forms of the Self, perhaps depicting our own natures and its vices."
3Enakshi Ganguly = "Although in Hinduism there is no beginning or creation of the universe, there are various stories, legends and predictions of what happened. One of the most compelling is the idea that the Universe was created from the simple play or leela of the Supreme Being. This Universe is meant for that leela, that magic, and to one day, go back into that nothingness that it came from. This is why aspects like Shiva and Kali are so prized and worshipped. "
