Gayatri Mantra Aum Bhoor Bhuvas Suvaha Tat Savitur Varenyam Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi Dhiyo Yonah Prachodayaat \u201cAum. We meditate upon the Spiritual Effulgence of THAT Adorable Supreme Divine Reality the Source of the Physical, the Astral and the Heavenly Spheres of Existence. May THAT Supreme Divine Being enlighten our intellect so that we may realize the Supreme Truth.\u201d Oh thou golden sun of most excellent splendor, illumine our hearts and fill our minds, so that we, recognizing our oneness with the Divinity which is the heart of the universe, may see the pathway before our feet, and tread it to those distant goals of perfection, stimulated by thine own radiant light. \u201cUnveil, O Thou who sustains the Universe, from whom all proceed, to whom all must return, that face of the True Sun now hidden by a vase of golden light, that we may see the truth and do our whole duty on our journey to thy sacred seat. \u2018O Lord, who shines in the Sun and in all the worlds, guides me to my resplendent destiny .The Gayatri Mantra is considered to be the Essence of the Teaching of the Vedas. Gayatri is herself the Veda Mata, Gayatri Chandasaam Maathaa (Mother of the Vedas). Gayatri has 3 names - Gayatri, Saavitri and Saraswathi. These three are present in each one of us. Gayatri is the master of the senses. Saavitri is the master of Prana (Life Force). Saavitri signifies Truth. Saraswathi is the presiding Deity of Speech (Vaak). These three represent purity in Thought, Word and Deed (Trikarana Suddhi). AUM ParaBrahman, whose vibration underlies, sustains Existence. BHUR Earth. Bhu loka (Physical plane). It also refers to the body made up of the 5 Pancha Bhutas (5 elements). These 5 elements constitute Prakriti (Nature). BHUVAS Atmosphere. Bhuva loka - The middle world. Bhuva is also Prana Shakthi. However, it is the presence of Prajnana that enables the Prana Sakthi to animate the body. It is on this account that the Vedas have declared Prajnanam Brahma (Constant Integrated Awareness is Brahmam). SUVAHA Light, Heaven, Space. Swarga loka (Land of the Gods) TAT THAT. Paramatma, God or Brahman SAVITUR Name of a sun-deity. That from which all this is born. VARENYAMFit to be worshipped; varenya- desirable, excellent. BHARGO Radiance, Spiritual Effulgence, the Light that bestows Wisdom. DEVASYA Divine Reality; of God. DHEEMAHI We meditate; may we attain. DHIYO Buddhi, Intellect. YO Which. NAH Our. PRACHODAYAT Enlighten.[Gayatri Mantra srcinates in the Rg Veda, or Book of Hymns, from the ancient Vedic period in India. Gayatri is herself the Mother of the Vedas- Veda Mata. The first line, Aum Bhur Bhbuvah Svah, is a formula from the Yajurveda, while the main body of the chant comes from verse 3.62.10 of the Rigveda (which is an example of the Gayatri Mantra). Since all the other three Vedas contain much material rearranged from the Rigveda, the Gayatri mantra is found in all the four Vedas. The deva invoked in this mantra is Savitr, and hence the mantra is also called Savitri. By many Hindus, the Gayatri Mantra is seen as a Divine awakening of the mind and soul, and within it a way to reach the most Supreme form of existence, and the way to union with Brahman. Understanding, and purely loving the essence of the Gayatri mantra is seen by many to be one, if not the most powerful ways to attain God. -Gayatri, from Wikipedia] Gayatri mantra, the most ancient and potent mantra of Hinduism, helps the higher human to be born in us all. Just like the Sun liquidates darkness, Gayatri Mantra decimates ignorance. It illumines the intelelct and produces the highest bliss, creativity and success in the owrld. The recitation of each of these Gayatri Mantras gives different benefits and brings different rewards. To attain these rewards, one must recite the particular mantra every day 54 times or 108 times with devotion and one pointed mind.
