SINGERS : HARINI IVATURI & RITA THYAGARAJAN
VEENA : PHANI NARAYANA
MUSIC : SAI MADHUKAR

The Dakshinamurti Stotra is a Sanskrit religious hymn to Lord Shiva provided to us by Adi Shankara. Here is a unique prayer, which is not only a prayer but the summary of all the philosophy that Adi Shankara has taught. It explains the metaphysics of the universe in the frame of the tradition of Advaita Vedanta. The Stotra takes the form of conceptual and philosophical statements.

In a compilation of ten stanzas Adi Shankara provides us a concise and vivid description of the philosophical significance of the form of Siva, giving the very essence of the Indian idea of epistemology. It differs from every other attempt in a very basic sense, in that it is holistic rather than purely reductionist.

Sri Dakshinamurti is an incarnation of Shiva, the supreme god of knowledge.

Sri Dakshinamurti is an aspect of Shiva as a guru of all types of knowledge, and bestower of jnana. This aspect of Shiva is his personification as the supreme or the ultimate awareness, understanding and knowledge.

This form represents Shiva in his aspect as a teacher of yoga, music, and wisdom, and giving exposition on the shastras.

Repeated chanting and/or meditating on the meaning of these verses is expected to help a spiritual practitioner of Advaita vedanta get thoroughly established in an Advaitic experience.
