Śrī Dakṣiṇāmūrti Stotram – Gurupūrṇimā course

June 15, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm


5 class Gurupūrṇimā course
Starting 15 June
11am NY | 5pm Brussels | 8.30pm India



An incarnation of Lord Śiva, Dakṣiṇāmūrti is considered the divine and ultimate Guru. Śiva as Dakṣiṇāmurti is presented as the source of all knowledge. The vigraha (form) is visualised and presented as the source of all knowledge. Īśvara appears in the form of a teacher. This is the special feature of this stotram. It is of special interest to traditional students of Vedanta as some of these verses are recited in the beginning and end of classes. We will complete this course on Gurupūrṇimā day.

Course objectives:

At the end of 5 classes, you will:

  • Learn to chant the Dakṣiṇāmurti stotram along with the Dhyāna śloka-s.
  • Practice small excerpts of the chanting live with the teacher.
  • Understand the symbolic significance of this stotram.
