Vijayaratnam Foundation Presents MAHAMAYA to Support Taarana


Vijayaratnam Foundation, in collaboration with Kalpana Dance Theatre, presents MAHAMAYA, an initiative to raise funds for our centre, Taarana. Through such initiatives, whether big or small, we aim to improve the lives of these children in every way possible. We believe in providing them with the quality education that they deserve.


MAHAMAYA, a combination of exquisite traditional Indian Bharatanatyam and Odissi styles, features our very own Datin Sri Umayal Eswaran, who will once again claim the stage next month. Scheduled for the 20th and 21st February 2016 at Kompleks Tan Sri Jeffrey Cheah in USJ 1, Subang Jaya, Datin Sri Umayal will perform alongside Nritta Ganeshi Manoharan, both principal dancers extremely renowned in their work of art.

Datin Sri Umayal takes pride in returning to stage after more than a decade all for a cause that is close to her heart. Being a well-known philanthropist, she finds complete joy in being able to provide these children with the best of her abilities. Through her philanthropic activities, she has helped ease the lives of many.

Mahamaya or Transcending Illusion is a homage to the Divine Mother who abides in the heart of every being. She is the divine creatrix who has manifested the dance forms of consciousness as adoration for Her beloved, the eternal formless Supreme Being. In truth these two timeless lovers are not two. Rather, they are inseparably bound to play out their cosmic dance of love for all eternity. She is that aspect of the Divine which is imminent and accessible. There was never a time, she did not exist. Her abode is always the present moment. She appears as Shoonya Bindu, the divine zero feminine energy, which then expresses itself as Prakriti or Universal Nature as the Creator, Preserver and Destroyer.
