Dakshinamurti is a form of Shvia who is the universal force of evolution towards enlightenment and liberation.

He is said to teach only in silence…the internal revelation of higher truth and knowledge.

He is always shown sitting beneath the tree of knowledge, relaxed with one leg across his knee. You can see the Ganga River flowing through his hair, and he holds blessings in his hands while demons are contained beneath his feet.

On either side are rishis who look perfectly happy to be enjoying his presence.
