This form represents Shiva as a teacher of yoga, music, and wisdom, and giving exposition on the shastras. South is the direction of Death, hence change. In every Siva temple the stone image of Dakshinamurthy is installed facing south, on the southern circumambulatory path around the sanctum sanctorum.
Perhaps, of all Hindu Gods, he is the only one sitting facing south. Indian tradition accords a special reverence to the Guru or the teacher. Dakshinamurthy, in the Hindu system of beliefs is regarded as the ultimate Guru - the embodiment of knowledge and the destroyer of ignorance as represented by the demon being crushed under the feet of the deity.
The Jnana Mudra is interpreted in this way:- The thumb denotes the God and the index finger denotes the man. The other three fingers stand for the three congenital impurities of man viz. When man detaches himself from these impurities, he reaches God. Another interpretation is that the other three fingers denote the three states of life: Jagruti Fully awake through senses and mind , Swapna Sleep state - When the mind is awake and Sushupti True-self - When the senses and mind go into soul - Atma.
The Abhaya Mudra, a gesture with the hand lifted above thigh with palm facing out, fingers pointing, is interpreted as His grace upon His students. The rosary or the snake signifies tantric knowledge. The fire represents illumination, removing the darkness of ignorance. The fifth day of the week, Thursday is associated with the planet Jupiter and is referred to as Guru Guruvar or Guruvaaram. Thursdays are considered auspicious to start any educational endeavours.

Sri Dakshinamurthy Stotras
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.
