R Nagarajan while discussing Appar's poetry says that both
dakshiNAmUrti and vINAdhara dakshiNAmUrti are generic puranic
references. Refer Siva Bhakti by R Nagarajan, Navrang Publ., New
Delhi, 1989. (p 39). The purana that is refered here is LingapurANa.
Hope this helps.
Thanks and Warm Regards.
PS: BTW, there is a similar reference to dakshinamurti in the
neRivAcal tAnEyAyninRanai aindu
poRivAcal pOrkkadavam cArtti aRivAnAm
AlamaranIzal aRam nAlvarkkanRuraitta
Alamamarkandattaran. (poy. div. 2085)
It is remarkable as it is one of the few benign references to Siva in
the entire Vaishnava canon ;-)))
