Usha Painting the Dawn, Lord Siva, Yogi in Cave

Goddess Usha, Dawn, empowered by Lord Siva, begins her journey to paint bright the dark pre-dawn day; Below her a Yogi in his cave, birds, tigers and cows begin their day. "She stirs all creatures that have feet, and makes the birds of air fly up." ("Dawn" hymn from Rig Veda.)

So loved is Siva-Shakti that all have an intimate relationship. So vast is His vastness, so over-powering is He that men cringe to transgress His will. So talked of is He that His name is on the lips of everyone--for He is the primal sound.
