Aldous Huxley beautifully describes the ‘The Dancing Shiva’ symbol (Nataraja, Nataraj, nət̪əˈraːdʒ) of the Hindu spiritual tradition. Aldous Huxley was the author of many books and essays including Brave New World, Island, The Perennial Philosophy and The Doors of Perception.
This audio clip is taken from an interview which took place in London, England in 1961 entitled ‘Aldous Huxley – Speaking Personally’.
