Teachings from Dakshinamurti Stotra of Adi Shankaracharya

The Dakshinamurti Stotra is a hymn written by Adi Shankaracharya and is dedicated to Dakshinamurti – Lord Shiva. The Stotra contains ten hymns. Here are few teachings from Dakshinamurti Stotra.

The world seems to be different from Supreme Self but not so, He gives Moksha for those who realize that what is there in the world is there in the Individual Self.

The knowledge of the Supreme Self pass through every individual and universe like the light-rays of a lamp when covered by a pot with many holes.

People, who consider the body, senses and ego as the self are blind, deluded in Maya; those who come out of this illusion attain Moksha.
