Dakshinamurthy slokam


This is 2nd sloka of Sri.Dakshinamoorthy by Sri.Adi Shankarar with meaning. . Top photo shows 63  Saiva nayanmars -saints   carved in Dakshinamoorthy's head in the form of Sivalingam.This temple is in the N.H of Chennai to Velore ,in between kaveripakkam & ocheri villages.Goddess  Sundara Kamatchi established by Adi Shankara.In 1958,this temple was unearthed by the Collector Tho. Mu.Bhaskara Thondaiman  who later authored the famous book "Vekatam mudhal kumari varai."Photos from Kumudam Jyodidam with thanks to Author Sri.A.M.Rajagopalan & also to the publishers.The name of the place of this temple is Sirukarumbur & God Thiripurandhaka eswarar. The divine grace of Sri.Dakshinamurthy is limitless ocean.He disposes the darkness of ignorance in the saints  by  a smile while observing silence.The divine light radiating from  Him clears all the  doubts & imparts Gnana ( knowledge).The knowledge to realise self as well as God.In the first sloka Sri.Shankarar requests God to appear in his inner mind ( heart ) .Attracted by his genuine love to see Him,God responds to his devotee's pure affection, immediately.This is understood by his word,"Adhratcham" which means as "seen ".I have heard that many persons doubts that arose in them got cleared in the presence of Saint Ramana Maha Rishi  in silence without any interaction.
