Sri Dakshinamurti

------------------------- I ------------------------------
I bow down to Sri Dakshinamurti in the form of my guru:
I bow down to Him by whose grace the whole universe appears to exist within myself like the reflection of a city mirror,
Although through Maya like a dream imagery it appears outside;
Through whose grace again upon waking---on the Realization of Truth.
It is perceived as the everlasting and nondual Self.

------------------------- II ------------------------------
I bow down to Sri Dakshinamurti in the form of my guru:
I bow down to Him who, by the sheer power of His will,
Project outside, like a magician or a mighty yogi,
this vast universe,
which, in the beginning, rests homogeneous without name or form, like the sprout in a seed,
And after creation, by virtue of time and space imagined through Maya,
Appears to be the manifold, possessed endless shapes and hues.

------------------------ III ----------------------------
I bow down to Sri Dakshinamurti in the form of my guru:
To whom outward manifestations, though based on the Real,
appear as illusory, ever changing objects;
Who grants to those who take refuge in Him through the Vedic pronouncement "Tatvamasi" ("That thou art"),
The boon of immediate knowledge of Brahma,
On attaining which the seeker returns no more to the realm of birth and death.

Sri Dakshinamurti

Who exactly is this Sri Dakshinamurti?

What it has got to do with a forum about religious?

This is a Special Form of All oervading Teacher (guru)

This is the form of God in the Form of a Guru whose linking goes to Adi Guru Shankaracharya and one hymn is more submitted for you on Sri Dakshinamurti as bvelow:
Salutations to Dakshinamurti,

Who is the Teacher of the whole world,
Who is the Doctor to those,
afflicted by the disease of birth and death,
and Who is the Treasure-House of all knowledge.

May kindly visit for further information on this aspect of deity at the following site:

word may be corrected

Work oervading is wrongly written; instead of it, exact word is 'pervading'. Dakshinamurthy is also directly available from wikipedia at google.
If you desire you may ask questions through 'PM' mode from me on the matter spirituality etc.
