The Dakshinamurti Shiva is a lesser known aspect of Lord Shiva, usually revered as the destroyer from the creator-preserver-destroyer trinity. Captured in time when, during His Himalayan sojourn, He stopped to give sermon to a group of sages, the benign aspect of Destroyer is obvious from His composure of countenance, replete with the third eye. At that point in time, He was facing southwards or Dakshin, Sanskrit for both the direction in question and the concept of 'knowledge'. His frontal arms are in jnanamudra (preaching) and varadamudra (bestowing), while His posterior arms are holding an aksamala (a chain of His divine tears, the Hindu equivalent of a rosary) and a spark of agni (fire). His aureole is teeming with snakes and He is crushing beneath His feet the apasmarapurusa (symbol of ignorance, a stunted mortal). Do not miss the Ganga contained within His divine tresses.
