Gokarna, June 08: Lord Shiva is that great artist who paints the entire universe from nothing. He has shown the world that art is like a crown on the head. The presence of music or naada must be established in the presence of the God of the universe. SriSamsthana stated that behind happiness is the mercy of the Lord.
His Holiness delivered the discourse after inaugurating the Shivapada auditorium in the vicinity of SriKshetra Gokarna Samsthana Sri Mahabaleshwara Deva Temple.
Shivapada is a combination of music and dance. Shivapada is the platform for every artist in the world. There is an opportunity for everyone to serve, through their performance, Lord Shiva. His Holiness stated that wherever art is located, the presence of Lord Shiva is a must.

This was followed by a music program by Pandit Venkatesh Kumar. Upadivanta Mandali President Sri Shitikanta Hire, Taluk Panchayat President Sri Mahesh Shetty were also present. Administrator Sri G.
