Unlike other Vedas, the Nătya Veda could be heard by the Shudras. Its main purpose was to provide moral and spiritual truths besides pleasure and delight to ears and eyes of all irrespective of their caste.
With the creation of this Veda, Lord Brahmă instructed Bharta and his hundred sons/disciples to present the first dramatic presentation before Shiva. Shiva being inspired danced himself and Bharata desired to learn this dance of Lord Shiva.
Lord Shiva then taught the principles of this art to his devoted disciple Tăndu (Tăndav dance) and to Părvati (Lăsya) and thus the harmony of the masculine and feminine movements in the dance was blended symbolically. Bharata learned the art from Tăndu and Părvati (daughter of Himălayas) brought the art from the heavens to teach it to the people of earth.
