In the form of Dakshinaa-murti.
Dakshinaamurti दक्षिणामूर्ति is the name given to Shiva to commemorate the most wonderful teaching He gave to Brahmaaब्रहमा , Naaraayan नारायण , Sanak सनक , Sanaatan सनातन and others while sitting with face southward.
It is the most well-known Stotra स्तोत्र. The marvelousness about it was that the divine knowledge was given without a single word in the most through manner which dispelled all doubts about the most knotty problems of universe, soul and God and where the disciples(Shishyaasशिष्य) were the oldest universally worshipped wisest beings and the Master(Guru) was an extremely handsome young being.
This name suggests the idea that this knowledge was so wonderfully given, because it was Mother who did the work in the form of Shiva शिव as Dakshinaa-Murti दक्षिणामूर्ति .
This is a unique case where the supremely divine knowledge was given not through the tongue, not through touch, not through glance exchange, not through presence, but through of Mother. I say "not through presence," because Mother was not present as Mother. This is an instance of the highest type of Mother's Grace. Grace suggests the idea of its not depending on the worthiness of the person whom the Grace is showered but resulting from the greatness of the Gracious.
