I am trying to write an article on the origin and meaning of Shiva Tandava Stotram for the general audience. I know the basic background story of how Ravana wanted to impress Lord Shiva and how this beautiful chant was composed by him. But I want to learn more about the earliest recorded versions of it? Where is it originally located in our texts? Who first made it famous? What are the deeper meanings?
