Lyrics with meanings

विश्वं दर्पणदृश्यमाननगरीतुल्यं निजान्तर्गतं
पश्यन्नात्मनि मायया बहिरिवोद्भूतं यथा निद्रया ।
यः साक्षात्कुरुते प्रबोधसमये स्वात्मानमेवाद्वयं
तस्मै श्रीगुरुमूर्तये नम इदं श्रीदक्षिणामूर्तये ॥१॥

Viswam darpana drusyamana nagari, Thulyam nijantargatham, 
Pasyannathmani mayaya bahirivoth, Bhutham yatha nidraya, 
Ya sakshath kuruthe prabodha samaye, Swathmanameva dwayam, 
Thasmai sri guru murthaye nama idham, Sree Dakshinamurthaye.,

Meaning:
Similar to the image of a town as seen in the mirror,
When one sees the image of the world within him,
The world appears as if it is outside.
It is similar to his seeing due to illusion,
During the state of sleep,
That the one real fact appears as many different truths,
And he realizes,when he wakes up and sees the reality,
That he is really the one and only one soul.
Salutation to the God facing the south,
Who is the greatest teacher.




बीजस्याऽन्तरिवाङ्कुरो जगदिदं प्राङ्गनिर्विकल्पं पुनः
मायाकल्पितदेशकालकलना वैचित्र्यचित्रीकृतम् ।
मायावीव विजृम्भयत्यपि महायोगीव यः स्वेच्छया
तस्मै श्रीगुरुमूर्तये नम इदं श्रीदक्षिणामूर्तये ॥२॥

Beejasyanthari vankuro jagadhidham, Prang nirvikalpam punah, 
Mayakalpitha desa kala kalanaa, Vaichithrya chithrikrutham, 
Mayaveeva vijrumbhayathyapi maha, Yogeeva yah swechaya, 
Thasmai sri guru murthaye nama idham, Sree dakshinamurthaye. 

Meaning:
Like the germ inside the seed is its part,
But becomes different after development
The many places and time which are before us,
Are drawn by illusion in the board of life in a peculiar manner,
By a great savant or an expert Siddha,
Who can create them as per their will,
Salutation to the God facing the south,
Who is the greatest teacher.



यस्यैव स्फुरणं सदात्मकमसत्कल्पार्थकं भासते
साक्षात्तत्त्वमसीति वेदवचसा यो बोधयत्याश्रितान् ।
यत्साक्षात्करणाद्भवेन्न पुनरावृत्तिर्भवाम्भोनिधौ
तस्मै श्रीगुरुमूर्तये नम इदं श्रीदक्षिणामूर्तये ॥३॥
Yasyaiva sphuranam sadathmakamasath, Kalparthagam bhasathe, 
Sakshaath thathwamaseethi veda vachasa, Yobodhyathyasrithhan, 
Yath saksht karanath bhavenna punara, Aavrithir bhavambhonidhow, 
Thasmai sri guru murthaye nama idham, Sree dakshinamurthaye.

Meaning:
He who exists as the real light of truth,
And shines in the false world of appearance,
And He who teaches disciples the great saying,
“Thou art that” after realizing its import,
Gets away from this cycle of life and death.
Salutation to the God facing the south,
Who is the greatest teacher.



नानाच्छिद्रघटोदरस्थितमहादीपप्रभा भास्वरं
ज्ञानं यस्य तु चक्षुरादिकरणद्वारा वहिः स्पन्दते ।
जानामीति तमेव भान्तमनुभात्येतत्समस्तं जगत्
तस्मै श्रीगुरुमूर्तये नम इदं श्रीदक्षिणामूर्तये ॥४॥

Nanachidhra ghato darasthitha maha, Deepa prabha bhaswaram, 
Jnanam yasya thu chakshuradhi karana, Dwara bahi spandathe, 
Jaanameethi tham eva baandham anubathi, Yethath samastham jagat, 
Thasmai sri guru murthaye nama idham, Sree dakshinamurthaye.
Meaning:
Like the light emanating from a lamp,
Kept in a pot with many holes,
Goes out in all directions,
In the person in whom the wisdom goes out
Through the openings of ear, eye, mouth and thought,
And when that person realizes that ‘I know myself”,
This whole universe shines after Him alone,
Who shines in the consciousness as the knower.
Salutation to the God facing the south,
Who is the greatest teacher.



देहं प्राणमपीन्द्रियाण्यपि चलां बुद्धिं च शून्यं विदुः

Thasmai sri guru murthaye nama idham, Sree dakshinamurthaye.

Meaning:
Those great philosophers, who think that,
The body, the soul and the fickle intellect,
The concept of emptiness and all other nothingness,
Are nothing but themselves,
Are similar to the women children, blind and the ignorant.
It is only He who can destroy, this veil of ignorance,
And wake us up from this state of deceit.
Salutation to the God facing the south,
Who is the greatest teacher.



राहुग्रस्तदिवाकरेन्दुसदृशो मायासमाच्छादनात्
सन्मात्रः करणोपसंहरणतो योऽभूत्सुषुप्तः पुमान् ।

Pragaswapsaamithi prabodha samaye, Yaa prathyabignayathe, 
Thasmai sri guru murthaye nama idham, Sree dakshinamurthaye.

Meaning:
Similar to the Sun when being masked by the serpent Rahu,
Knows that it was existing, once the eclipse is over
That man whose senses are suppressed
When he is asleep,
Because of the veil of illusion,
Realizes that he was in the state of sleep,
When he wakes up.
Salutation to the God facing the south,
Who is the greatest teacher.



बाल्यादिष्वपि जाग्रदादिषु तथा सर्वास्ववस्थास्वपि

Thasmai sri guru murthaye nama idham, Sree dakshinamurthaye.

Meaning:
Salutations to him who shines and exhibits,
Himself by the beatific Chinmudhra of the hand,
That he exists within the humans as self,
Forever and non changing,
Even during the changing states of childhood, youth and old age
And even during the states of sleep, dream and wakefulness.
Salutation to the God facing the south,
Who is the greatest teacher.
The truth as represented by the concept of Brahman, exists always.



विश्वं पश्यति कार्यकारणतया स्वस्वामिसम्बन्धतः
शिष्याचार्यतया तथैव पितृपुत्राद्यात्मना भेदतः ।

Swapne Jagrathi va ya esha purusho, Maya Paribramitha, 
Thasmai sri guru murthaye nama idham, Sree dakshinamurthaye.
Meaning:
The world sees as cause and effect,
The differences between us and our lord,
The distinction between teacher and the taught,
The distinction between father and son,
And so the man is confused by illusion,
And believes in these differences,
During the times of dream and wakefulness.
Salutation to the God facing the south,
Who is the greatest teacher.

Meaning:
To the sake of which supreme Brahman,
The universe is shining as self,
Which is Movable and immovable, with its aspects?

And also to those who examine the truth behind,
The meaning of this universe and find,
That it Consists of nothing but,
The God who is every where.
Salutation to the God facing the south,
Who is the greatest teacher.

Meaning:
The concept of the Athma,
Which is explained in this poem of praise,
Hearing which, understanding which,
Meditating which and singing which,
One would attain the state of the godliness,
And the great state of self-realization,
And also you would get the eight powers of occult,
Without any problems in between.
