I bow down before the Lord Shri Dakshinamurti, he who is the awareness of the supreme spirit.
He is to be realized through Vedanta, and is seated under the banyan tree. He is enchanted by the music of Vallaki-Veena. His lotus face shines with a nectar-like smile.
He is adept at destroying the sorrow of birth, etc. He is smart in displaying the illusive nature of the universe, and detroys all the doubts of the sages and others through the silent exposition of Mudra. He is the source of Guruguha. He is the sun who removes the primordial darkness of Avidya ignorance. He is the master of masters, beautiful and beyond thought and speech, sports the crescent moon, observes silence, destroyed Cupid, and bestows auspiciousness.
