Dakshina means Southern Direction and murthy means Idol. Dakshina murthy is actually Lord Shiva, who sits facing southern direction.
Dakshinamurthy is regarded as the Guru of all Gurus – the embodiment of knowledge and the destroyer of ignorance. The Gnaana Mudra is interpreted thus: The thumb denotes God and the index finger denotes man. The other fingers stand for the three congential impurities of man, which are arrogance, illusion ( maya) and bad deeds of past birth ( Karma) . When a man detaches from these impurities, he reaches God.
Another interpretation is that the other three fingers denotes the three states of life: Jagrithi ( Fully awak through senses and mind), Swapna ( Sleep state when the mind is awake) and Sushupti ( deep sleep when the senses and mind withdraw into Aathma)
One must worship Dakshinamurthy for Gnana.
