Gayatri Mantra

The Sanskrit term Mantra is composed of “man”, the spirit, and the suffix “-tra”, protection. A Mantra is therefore a tool for protecting the mind, from an etymological point of view.

A mantra is a sound vibration in which an energy is embedded. The mantra is either a very condensed formula "Bija", or a series of assembled syllables, repeated many times, following a certain rhythm.

The Mantra channels the mind which tends to scatter. Its own energy is contained in its sound form...

Meaning and action of the Gayatri mantra

The Gayatri Mantra is not only chanted here, between us, by our one sangha. Right now, there are people around the world who are also singing this deeply moving prayer. It doesn't matter what time of day or night you sing the mantra, others do the same.

The balancing qualities of the Gayatri Mantra

The Gayatri is a perfectly balanced mantra, yin and yang. The body or text of the Gayatri Mantra is feminine, its message and invocation are masculine. Gayatri is the Mother of the Vedas, which means the mother of all knowledge.

It calls for the masculine "Savitur", which is said to be the radiance of perception and intelligence. This radiance is found everywhere and in every experience; it is likened to the radiation of the sun in the solar system. In other words, the whole of the knowledge of the complex modes of existence is contained within the very syllables of the mantra; it is also there that the means and the vehicle that one uses to go beyond temporal knowledge are found.

The Gayatri is an ancient vigil that encircles the planet.

The Gayatri Mantra is one of the keynotes for the transformation of consciousness; it is also a vibration identical to the life force inherent in nature.

The mantra is most effective when chanted in its original language, Sanskrit. It represents one of the oldest prayers known to mankind and its sentiment is older than light.

This prayer calls for the highest wisdom, the splendor of the cosmos, to illuminate the understanding of our true nature. This calling requires us to develop a subtlety and a receptivity to divine wisdom, which permeates the experience of life and which, in essence, is our true nature.

  1. Chanting the Gayatri Mantra purifies the singer.
  2. Listening to the Gayatri Mantra purifies the listener.

This sacred prayer spirals through the entire universe from the singer's heart, calling for peace and divine wisdom for all.

Detailed translation of the Gayatri mantra

Gayatri mantra: Translation and study of the lyrics

Bhur Bhuvah Svah
Tat Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi
Dhiyo Yo nah Prachodayat

  • The first word "OM" - ॐ
    It is also called Pranav because the sound of "Om" or "AUM" comes from Prana (vital vibration), which feels the Universe The scriptures say "Aum Iti Ek Akshara Brahman" (Aum one syllable is Brahman). It is the sum and the substance of all the words that can emanate from the human throat. It is the primordial fundamental sound which symbolizes the Universal Absolute.
  • The Vyahrities - Bhur, Bhuvah, Svah
    The above three words of the Gayatri, which literally means "past", "present" and "future", are called Vyahrities. Vyahriti is the one who gives knowledge of the entire cosmos or "ahriti". The scripture says: "Visheshenh Aahritih sarva viraat, praahlaanam prakashokaranh vyahritih". Thus, in pronouncing these three words, the person who sings it contemplates the Glory of God which illumines the three worlds or regions of experience.

Individual meanings of other words in the mantra:

  • Tat - In simpler terms it means "it", as it is a description by speech or language, the "Ultimate Reality".
  • Savitur - "Divine Sun" (The Ultimate Light of Wisdom)
  • Varenium - "Adore"
  • Bhargo - "Enlightenment
  • Devasya - "Divine Grace"
  • Dheemahi - "We Contemplate"
  • Dhi - "The Intellect
  • Yo - "Who"
  • No - "Ours".
  • Prachodayat - "Ask/Organise/Pray"

How to chant the Gayatri mantra

How to sing the Gayatri Mantra?

Singing Gayatri Mantra has many benefits. However, there is a certain process to sing them. It is therefore highly recommended to follow certain rules while chanting the Gayatri Mantra. While chanting the Gayatri Mantra, you should always close your eyes and try to concentrate on each word and understand its meaning. Every word or even sound must be pronounced correctly, as it should be. Although it can be chanted at any time of the day, it is advisable to chant the mantra both early in the morning and at night before sleeping.

Finally, the mantra is an expression of gratitude, both to the Life-giving Sun and to the Divine. This has prompted devotees to adopt a heart-centered approach to the mantra. The sensitivity it awakens is more significant than the literal meaning. It is an offering, a way to open up to grace, to be inspired.

Gayatri mantra chant: the Gayatri reveals its secret to the singer

By chanting the Gayatri Mantra, the mantra itself reveals the teachings within. The Gayatri is complete and flawless. The Gayatri Mantra regenerates an unobstructed perception, just like plants renewing themselves when the wind, for example, carries the seeds over the earth. In time and under the right conditions, the fields will inherit wildflowers and wheat.

In a continuous, unobstructed stream, from season to season, the seeds spread over the earth and when their time comes, they sprout, bloom and bring forth a new generation The mantra works likewise way, it is sown by our song and this is how it expresses itself and spreads. The meaning of Gayatri is like the good season which makes the earth prosper. Time and time again, the fruit appears. As a seed that surrenders is carried by the wind, we surrender our intention to the heart of the universal intention and the Gayatri blooms, whether we are aware of it or not, in the right place and at the right time.

Gayatri is like the power of the sun. How can we really talk about it? Is this natural phenomenon even understandable?

Any definition that can be heard is like a single grain of sand on endless shores. No definition can capture the exact vastness of meaning and intensity of this wondrous mantra.

To be initiated into this sacred mantra is a great privilege. The sound of the Gayatri, or even a mere thought of the Gayatri verse, puts grace into action as we gratefully acknowledge how fortunate we are to live our highest ideals.

Even the uninitiated can feel the inner joy that comes from chanting the Gayatri mantra just by listening to it with your eyes closed. (Go up to the youtube video of Déva Premal of this article and put the sound... you will know...)

What is a Yantra?

Yantras are great cosmic conductors of energy, an antenna of nature, a powerful tool for harmony, prosperity, success, good health, yoga and meditation.

The Matrix of Existence

The mantra is the matrix of existence

The morning dew appears by the mantra, sparkles in the glow of the rising sun and shines in the fields. Then it disappears again by the mantra, in the warmth of the sun of midday. Everything appears and disappears, in the entire existence, by the power of vibration, degree, length and quality of sound: by a mantra.

The Gayatri Mantra is a vibration that creates a condition of subtle receptivity; it opens the way for us that leads to unconditional Truth. Just as the buzzing of the bee helps weave the entire web of experience.

Mantra chanting contributes to the entire matrix of existence.

Initiation to Inner Joy

Gayatri mantra: an initiation to inner joy

There was a time when the Gayatri Mantra was not spoken aloud, only repeated silently or whispered on the tip of the tongue. This method of chanting is a particularly subtle and powerful way to repeat the mantra. There was a time when women did not chant the mantra. A time when, apart from Brahmin priests, no one chanted the mantra. Today, everyone has the privilege of chanting the Gayatri Mantra: what an honor! It seems that this shift came just as world events began to herald a darker time. Now millions of men, women and children of all walks of life are repeating and chanting this powerful and wondrous invocation.

Because of its universal appeal and tenor, this mantra cannot rightly be associated with any particular religion. The Hindus were its guardians; they are the ones who taught it and propagated it throughout the world. One could say that the Gayatri Mantra represents their offering to the spirit of humanity and to the Awakening of all beings. Nevertheless, the scope of the invocation of the Gayatri is universal, it goes far beyond all the boundaries of secular religion.
