Ramachander Adhi Sankara has written very many great Stotras prayers but here is a unique prayer, which is not only a prayer but the summary of all the philosophy that he has taught. Even during his time, this stotra was difficult to comprehend and it became necessary for one of his disciples, Sureshwaracharya to write a commentary called Manasollasa to this stotra.
There are large number of books and commentaries on this commentary itself. Mouna Vyakhya prakatitha, para, Brahma thathwam yuvanam, Varshishtha anthevasad rishiganai, Ravrutham brahma nishtai, Acharyendram kara kalihtha chin, Mudram ananda roopam, Swathmaramam mudhitha vadanam, Dakshinamurthim eede.
I praise and salute that Dakshinamrthy, Who faces the south, Who explains the true nature of the supreme Brahman, Through his state of silence, Who is young in looks, Who is surrounded by disciples who are old Sages, Whose minds are fixed on Brahman, Who is the greatest of teachers, Who shows the Chinmudhra by his hand, Who is personification of happiness, Who is in the state of extreme joy within himself, And who has a smiling face.
Sri Sundara Chaitanya Swami says Dumb people should have also have become gurus if by silence only doubts get eradicated. So it means we need to listen carefully in silent mind without having any other thoughts and do sravanam,mananam and nidhidyasanam by concentration.
As time is dependent on him so it means he looks young. Adi Guru from which gnana started by Dakshinamurthy Siva. Please note that Gnana is never created and gnana is eternal. Even before newton discovered our earth is having gravitational force and only newton discovered it and not invented. In Hand as known thumb finger is very important and base and other four fingers have no power without thumb finger. In our hand the middle,ring and little fingers represent walking,dream,deep sleep states.
When we obverse jiva always tries to be close with the other 3 fingers but not with thumb finger. Chinmudra means hand gesture in which the first finger is kept at the root of the thumb, the last three fingers are unfolded which means jiva mixes with thumb finger which is paramatma as thumb finger is required for any operation with hand.
Below article gives more information about Chin Mudra. The nail of the index finger is placed into the first joint of the thumb. The last three fingers always face down towards the earth in this mudra.
It is a gesture of receiving. When the finger touches the thumb a circuit is produced which allows the energy that would normally dissipate into the environment to travel back into the body, and up to the brain. Sri Sundara Chaitanya Swami says Vedanta is for one who thinks he is bound and no age,sex factors come into consideration. In dreams even though there is no external light,sun,moon and though we close our eyes we are still seeing our dream by our own light chaitanyam. We are not the body also we are only observer of the body but not the body as we observe our body growing old etc Viswam darpana drusyamana nagari, Thulyam nijantargatham, Pasyannathmani mayaya bahirivoth, Bhutham yatha nidraya, Ya sakshath kuruthe prabodha samaye, Swathmanameva dwayam, Thasmai sri guru murthaye nama idham, Sree Dakshinamurthaye.
It is similar to his seeing due to illusion, During the state of sleep, That the one real fact appears as many different truths, And he realizes,when he wakes up and sees the reality, That he is really the one and only one soul.
Salutation to the God facing the south, Who is the greatest teacher.
The above stanza tells us that the world which is outside us is same as our soul but we see them as different entities due to the stotdam of ignorance. As soon as we wake up, we realize that the dream is false and even while seeing our image in the mirror, we know that we are not seeing us in the mirror but our image.
When we get knowledge from the guru we are in the wakeful state without the veil of ignorance. Sri Sundara Chaitanya Swami says Seeing two different things is not Duality Dvaitam but not having bhava that all beings are one and the same is Duality Dvaitam. Here in this stanza sleep mentioned is dreams. In dreams we also dream relations,sorrows etc. If maoayalam pots are there to know all are made with mud then it is advaita else if we differentiate then it is dvaita.
As known Ramana Maharshi said many times that walking state and dream state are same. As sundara chaitanya swami says,in dreams we create the world drishti-srishti vada but in waking state world is already created and we see the world. But our mind is the same in dreams and waking states which is important.
So consciousness is our real nature. Knower,known and knowledge i. Also dskshinamurthy body and mind and five senses are also objects which is important as we are knowing about changes in our body and five senses.
As in deep sleep we are alive though there is no mind,body,world. So world is in us rather than we in the world. Sri Sundara Chaitanya Swami says in english “ok” means only krishna: When the net of illusion is lifted and when we reach the stage of manifestation, we would find that what we think as different is but one and the same.
Sri Sundara Chaitanya Stotrak says with Dakshinamurthy Stotram we are clear that time and space are not real and hence we cannot accept creation has been done in 7 or 6 or N number of days and that god created water on first day etc etc.
Also it seems it was written in that book that god was not clear which he has created in the first 3 days and hence he was ensuring again. It is false theory as without sun if do we know that 5 days are passed? These theories and those books and followers are blind and wrong as known time and space are not real.
Person who are intelligent will not believe in these false theroies.
Dakshinamurthy Stotram – Mattancherry (Malayalam)
Also it seems that it was written that people who don’t believe will go to hell which is again false propaganda. Because though all religions accept god is creator but no one clearly tells what is the material with which he created no one knows. But if we think who created our dreams so we are clear that only our mind is responsible for creation of dreams and waking states but we cannot accept srishti-drishti vada.
Also we cannot accept that god is changing and he has been changed to world etc. Because we say it is only superimposition we are seeing like rope and snake. So only brahman only exists and nothing exists like explained above already chinmudra in our hand where thumb finger is seperate and not attached to any states.
Even Einstein theory also says that time and space are relative. Yasyaiva sphuranam sadathmakamasath, Kalparthagam bhasathe, Sakshaath thathwamaseethi veda vachasa, Yobodhyathyasrithhan, Yath saksht karanath bhavenna punara, Aavrithir bhavambhonidhow, Thasmai sri guru murthaye nama idham, Sree dakshinamurthaye. In sanskrit it means “Tat Tvam Asi”.
In advaita it means absolute equality of ‘tat’, the Ultimate Reality, Brahman, and ‘tvam’, the individual self, jiva. Nanachidhra ghato dhara sthitha maha, Deepa prabha bhaswaram, Jnanam yasya thu chakshuradhi karana, Dwara bahi spandathe, Jaanameethi tham eva baandham anubathi, Yethath samastham jagat, Thasmai sri guru murthaye nama idham, Sree dakshinamurthaye.
Our body prevents us from seeing the truth the light from outside that we are the Brahman and lets out light though the sensory organs and makes us deceive ourselves by feeling that we are happy.
This simile of a pot with holes for the body occurs in many places in Indian philosophy. Sri Sundara Chaitanya Swami says who speaks spritiual technical terms like karma etc edo naa karma sir ani aneevallu without knowing meaning also is fine and we should never blame them. He blamed people who says all religions are same and he says people who tells these are one who donot know basics in religion.
But he says everyone should live together peacefully. Deham pranam api indryanyapi chalaam, Budhim cha soonyam vidhu, Stree balandha jadopamasthvaha mithi, Brandha brusam vadhina, Maya sakthi vilasa kalpitha maha, Vyamoha samharine, Thasmai sri guru murthaye nama idham, Sree dakshinamurthaye. It is only Malayalak who can destroy, this veil of ignorance, And wake us up from this state of deceit. This is a sample of the approach of negation in daksginamurthy the truth about the concept of self.
Senses, the body etc cannot be the absolute truth as they are transient. Sri Sundara Chaitanya Swami strictly condemns Carvaka school of thought. He questions that if body is really atma why does the dead body does not speak and why cannot we stop our death? In budhdism one sect called “kshanikha vignana vadam” means atma is only temporary means if i see a flower then i get flower knowledge and later once we forget flower then knowledge is given and so is atma.
In budhdism another sect called “sunyavadam” where they believe that atma is sunyam like deep sleep where nothing remains. Sri Sundara Chaitanya swami condenms all sects of buddhism though he tells that buddhism is better when compared to other religions. Rahu grastha divakarendu sadrusho, Maya samachadanath, Sanamthra karanopa samharanatho, Yo abhoot sushuptha pumaan, Pragaswapsaamithi prabodha samaye, Yaa prathyabignayathe, Thasmai sri guru murthaye nama idham, Sree dakshinamurthaye.
Similar the sun existing even when there is eclipse, we exist when we are sleeping. This is denial of the Buddhist theory that, when we are asleep there is nothingness. Sri Sundara Chaitanya Swami says to say we slept happily in deep sleep means we should have experienced it to say we slept happily so sunyam concept of Buddhist is denied completely. Therefore we are sat-chit-ananda as i am existing in all threee states i. Therefore i am witness of the 3 states.
Sri Sundara Chaitanya Swami says experience is not really required and only jnana is required which helps to eradicate ignorance. Our life is always with combination of questions and answers only. In our childhood our parents ask various questions like they ask us to recognise who is father,mother,pen Later we start asking questions like mother,where did father go outside?
All our experiences are difference like we have diff experience when we lose our wealth and our experience is diff when we gain more health and our experience is diff when we fail in exams. But all these experiences are experienced by us. Balyadishwapi jagaradhadishu thadha, Sarva sva avasthasthaswapi, Vyavrutha swanuvarthamanamaha, Mithyanth sphurantham sada, Svathmaanam pragatikarothi bajatham, Yo mudraya bhadraya, Thasmai sri guru murthaye nama idham, Sree dakshinamurthaye.
The truth as represented by the concept of Brahman, exists always. In dreams we have only bhokta and no kartha because it is only mind who dreams.
Dakshinamurthy Stotram – Mattancherry (Malayalam)
stltram Sri Sundara Chaitanya Swami says one of the big scripture in the world is told in dreams by god.
Brahmins are called Shastri because he is the knower of Shastras. Viswam pasyathi karya karana thaya, Swa swami sambandatha, Sishyacharya thaya thadaiva pithru, Puthradhyathmana bedatha, Swapne Jagrathi va ya esha purusho, Maya Paribramitha, Dakshinaamurthy sri guru murthaye dakshonamurthy idham, Sree dakshinamurthaye.
The ignorance of the truth because of the veil of ignorance Maya is reemphasized. Bhoorambaamsya anilo ambhara, Maharnadho himamasu puman, Ithyabhathi characharathmakamidham, Yasyaiva murthyashtakam, Nanyath kinchana vidhyathe vimrusathaam, Yasmath parasmath vibho, Thasmai sri guru murthaye nama idham, Sree dakshinamurthaye.
Of water, fire, malayalaam, space, The sun, moon and the individual soul, And also to those who examine the truth behind, The meaning of this universe and find, That it Consists of nothing but, The God who is every where. Sarvathmathvamithi sphutikruthamitham, Yasmadamushamin sthave, Thenasya sravanath thadartha mananath, Dyanascha Sankeerthanath, Sarvathmathva maha vibhuthi sahitham, Syadheeswarasthvam svatha, Siddhyeth thath punarashtadha parinatham, Chaisvaryamvayhatham.
