To Him who appears as the moving and unmoving universe consisting of Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Space, the Sun, the Moon and the Individual Person, to Him beyond whom, supreme and all-pervading, there is nothing else how much you may search, to Him of the form of the Guru,  ( full of Grace and Peace) the blessed Dakshinamurti, is this prostration.

The delusion caused by mAyA can be removed only by the Grace of the Lord. The  Realization of the Absolute  can be obtained only by the Grace of the Lord who appears in the form of the Guru.  In the Saiva Agamas there are 36 fundamental principles, have been enunciated.  Of them the only ones which are understood by a direct experience are the five elements, Sun, Moon and the Self.

(Note that 'Space' the most subtle of the five elements
is also included here as  subject to direct experience;
  because, every time you open your eyes
you know that space is enveloping you).


That is why the Lord is said to be of the eight-fold form consisting of these eight.
