depictions, we see damru in lord Shiva’s hands. The beating of the damru emits
the music on which Shiva performs his Tandava. Damru is also shown in Ganesh
images, and sometimes in the hands of goddess Durga. It signifies an unbroken
tune, which guides all life forms in their daily duties. It represents the
sound of Om- the beginning and end of all life forms.
Here is a
compact damru, shaped like an inverted triangle placed on a straight one, a
form that symbolizes the union of the male and female energies, the powers of
Shiva and Shakti. As per Vaastu and astrology, since damru is Shiva’s loved
instrument, keeping it in your home is considered highly auspicious. Bringing a
damru in your residence in the month of Savan or on any Monday will destroy all
the negative vibrations from your life and fill your home with the positive
energies of Shiva and Devi.
