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.

The popularity of this hymn is not just due to the poetic masterpiece but also because it encompasses the fundamental teachings of Vedanta succinctly and briefly. The all-pervasiveness of the Atman is clearly expounded in the tenth verse of the hymn. The practice of vedanta is to get rid of avidya ignorance by exercising the will over attachment to the unreal, and by overcoming fear and anxiety by finding the bliss in the eternal.
The embodiment of Dakshinamurti in the Guru, by whose grace and grace alone the illumination becomes apparent is saluted in the fourth line of each sloka in the hymn. The final understanding that there is no duality between Guru and God is the essence of religious life, according to Advaita Vedanta. More on the knowledge of Atman can be found in brihadaranyaka upanishhad 4. The stotraM aids in the comprehension of the fact that Jiva, Ishvara and Brahman are all the same on the plane of Reality.
The recital of this hymn, accompanied with contemplation of the meaning, is said to enable one to reach the plentitude of realization and become one with the Brahman. Actually, it is the realization that you are already and always Brahman. An excellent commentary on the dakshinamurthi stotra was written by His immediate disciple, Sureshvara, and it is called maanasollaasa. Another beautiful commentary on the work is tattvasudhaa by svayamprakaashayatinindra.
Both of the works, along with a lucid commentary of the dakshinamurti stotra, has been published by the Sringeri Math. The book is called 'Sridakshinamurti stotram' and translated by Dr.
The book has two volumes and over pages. The fact that one requires over pages to explain the sridakshinamurti stotra provides an idea of the depth required to understand the stotra. I surrender to THAT, who projected brahma at the beginning of the creation and revealed vedas.
The inspiration turns my intellect towards Atman. May peace be on us for ever. The universe is the reflection of a mirror. The Truth is the supreme Brahman, the one without a second. The mind, senses and intellect are all able to only discern the reflection of the Atman.
The identity of the brahman and the Atman is apparent after self-illumination. I offer my profound salutations to the auspicious Guru, who is an embodiment of Dakshinamurti, and whose grace is responsible for the illumination. He in whom this universe, prior to its projection was present like a tree in a seed unmanifested , and by whose magic this was transformed manifested in various forms, by His own will similar to a yogi's- to that Dakshinamurti, who is embodied in the auspicious Guru, I offer my profound salutations.
He, by whose light the unreal universe appears real, teaches the truth of brahman to those who want to know the Atman through the vedic statement tattvamasi thou art That and He Who puts an end to the samsaric cycle - to that Dakshinamurti, who is embodied in the auspicious Guru, I offer my profound salutations. He whose light gleams through the senses like the light emanating from a pot with holes in which a lamp is kept , He whose knowledge alone brings the state of knowing I am That , He whose brightness makes everything shine - to that Dakshinamurti, who is embodied in the auspicious Guru, I offer my profound salutations.
Their comprehension is worse than that of women, children, blind and the dull. He who destroys this delusion caused by maya and makes us aware of the Truth - to that Dakshinamurti, who is embodied in the auspicious Guru, I offer my profound salutations. The brillance of sun exists even when intercepted by Rahu during eclipse. Similarly, the power of cognition only remains suspended during deep sleep. The Self exists as pure being even though unrecognized due to the veil of Maya. A person on awakening becomes aware that he was asleep earlier and the dream was unreal.
Similarly, a person who awakens to the consciousness of the Self recognizes his previous state of ignorance as unreal. He by whose grace alone does one awaken to the consciousness of the Self - to that Dakshinamurti, who is embodied in the auspicious Guru, I offer my profound salutations. He, whose existence is changeless throughout the various states of the body like old, young etc and the mind waking, dreaming etc , and who reveals the greatest knowledge of Atman by GYaana-mudra the joining of the thumb and the forefinger of a raised right hand - to that Dakshinamurti, who is embodied in the auspicious Guru, I offer my profound salutations.
He, whose power of Maya enables one to experience the world as multiform like teacher, disciple, father, son etc during both the waking and dream states - to that Dakshinamurti, who is embodied in the auspicious Guru, I offer my profound salutations. The verse points out to the all pervasiveness of the indwelling Spirit, Atman. By the recital, contemplation and meditation of this hymn, the disciple attains the state of oneness with Atman and realizes his unity with the universe,thus becoming the very essence of the eightfold manifestation.
I offer my profound salutations to Shri maha dakshinamurti, the remover of the worldly samasric bonds binding us, Who is to be meditated upon as the one sitting under a banyan tree and bestowing knowledge GYana instantly on all the sages and the devoted disciples.

There are large number of books and commentaries on this commentary itself. 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.
