Dandavat is intimately connected with the notion and reality of darshan. If darshan is the facticity of my being seen by the Lord here and now, dandavat is the natural consequence which is in my power to execute as an expression of wonder, of admiration, of receptivity of the flowing grace, and of a kind of gratitude to the undeserved though naturally present flow of grace. That is a kind of paradox: I am receiving without doing anything, yet can receive only when I do something. I feel that in the dandavat which is my doing this paradox comes to a dissolution, to a dynamis of coincidence of both states of action and inaction.
