I praise and salute that Dakshinamrthy, Who faces the south, Who explains the true nature of the supreme BrahmanThrough his state of silence, Who is young in looks, Who is surrounded by disciples who are old Sages, Whose minds are fixed on BrahmanWho is the greatest of teachers, Who shows the Chinmudhra  by his hand, Who is personification of happiness, Who is in the state of extreme joy within himself, And who has a smiling face.

This is a sample of the approach of negation in identifying the truth about the concept of self.

The above stanza tells us that the world which is outside us is same as our soul but we see them as different entities due to the veil of ignorance. When the net of illusion is lifted and when we reach the stage of manifestation, we would find that what we think as different is but one and the same.

It explains the metaphysics of the universe in the frame of the tradition of Advaita Vedanta.
