The meter Totakacharya has used in this composition is the difficult but beautiful totaka. Hence he was himself given the name Totakacharya. Every word of this exquisite hymn bespeaks the utter devotion of its author to Adi Shankara.

Adi Shankaracharya, the Guru, is all to him. There is nothing equal to the Guru; nothing superior to him. The Guru is the dispeller of the darkness of ignorance. There can be no greater good than the removal of ignorance. The spirit of devotion of the disciple is best expressed in the soul-moving poem.
