Gayatri Mantra

Gayatri Mantra

One of the oldest and most powerful of Hindu hymns that has its origin in the Rig Vedas the Gayatri Mantra which was written in Sanskrit about 2500 to 3500 years ago, The word mantra is Sanskrit and it means: syllable(s) or sacred word(s). Mantras are vibrational formulas that are recited silently within, or spoken, or sung outwardly.The Vedas are widely considered to be the source of all true knowledge, the word "Veda" itself meaning "Knowledge".

The Gayathri manthra takes the form of the four vedas.It contains the essence of vedic teachings and the universal prayer enshrined in the Vedas,This Mantra is a highly revered mantra in Hinduism, second only to the mantra Om.. The deva invoked in this mantra is Savitr, and hence the mantra is also called Savitri.

Gayatri Devi also gave to mankind the "Gayatri Mantra", also known as the "Guru Mantra" or the "Savitri Mantra". It is one of the oldest mantras, and generally thought of as being amongst the highest and most powerful mantras of all. This mantra is therefore often referred to as "the Mother of the Vedas". In the Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna had proclaimed to Arjuna - "Among all the mantras, I am the Gayatri.

Gayatri is typically portrayed as seated on a red lotus, signifying wealth. She appears in either of these forms:

Having five heads with the ten eyes looking in the eight directions plus the earth and sky, and ten arms holding all the weapons of Vishnu, symbolizing all her reincarnations.

Accompanied by a white swan, holding a book to portray knowledge in one hand and a cure in the other, as the goddess of Education.

The Gayathri divinises the five elements; it represents the presiding deities of all the five. Gayathri is worshipped as a five faced goddess;

Om is the first,

Bhoor – bhuvahssuvah is the second,

Thath savitur varnyam is the third,

Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi is the fourth, and

Dhiyo yonah Prachodayath is the fifth face

The Gayatri Mantra:

Aum Bhur Bhuvah Swah, Tat Savitur Varenyam

Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi, Dhiyo Yo Nah Prachodayat

भूर्भुव: स्व: तत्सवितुर्वरेण्यं भर्गो देवस्य धीमहि, धीयो यो : प्रचोदयात् ।।

[Word Meaning: Aum: The primeval sound (from which all sounds emerge); Dheemahi: We meditate upon; Varenyam: the most adorable, most desirable or most enchanting; Bhargo: luster or effulgence; Tat: of that; Devasya: supreme (Lord); Savitur: from whom all creations emerge (also means the Sun God who is our life source); Bhur: who is our inspirer; Bhuvah: who is our creator; Suvaha: who is the abode of supreme joy; [Bhur, Bhuvah and Suvaha are also considered to mean three lokaas or worlds namely Heaven, earth and lower worlds]. Yo: May this light; Prachodayaat: inspire/illumine; Naha: our; Dhiyo: intellect (activities of the intellect)]

Gayathri Manthra : Long Invocation points to the seven worlds or lokas.

The seven lokas, may be briefly described as:

bhuhu - earth, the physical world

bhuvaha - astral/desire/breath, the world of becoming

suvaha - mental, the world of thinking

mahaha - causal, silent mind, the world of emotion

janaha - world of creative generation

tapaha - world of intuition

satyaM - world of Absolute Truth

The most popular is the mantra chanted during Sandhyavandhanam, and it invokes the resplendant being in the sun - Surya Narayana. This is revealed in the Sandhya Vandanam literally means either “Salutation to the goddess of Dawn and dusk” or the prayers done during dawn and dusk.”

கலையாத கல்வியும் குறையாத வயதுமோர் கபடு வாராத நட்பும்
கன்றாத வளமையுங் குன்றாத ­ளமையும் கழுபிணியிலாத உடலும்
சலியாத மனமும் அன்பு அகலாத மனைவியும் தவறாத சந்தானமும்
தாழாத கீர்த்தியும் மாறாத வார்த்தையும் தடைகள் வாராத கொடையும்
தொலையாத நிதியமும் கோணாத கோலும் ஒரு துன்பமில்லாத வாழ்வும்
துய்ய நின் பாதத்தில் அன்பும் உதவி பெரிய தொண்டரொடு கூட்டு கண்டாய்
அலையாழி அறிதுயிலு மாயனது தங்கையே! ஆதிகட வூரின் வாழ்வே!
அமுதீசர் ஒருபாகம் அகலாத சுகபாணி! அருள்வாமி! அபிராமியே
- அபிராமி பட்டர்
“Learning that goes not awry, a life span that is not shortened, and friendship that knows no guile,
Prosperity that never diminishes, youth that does not whither, and a body that sees no disease,
A mind that is never vexed, a wife whose love wavers not, and children who never know disobedience,
Fame that never decreases, a word that I go back on not, and charity that has no hurdles,
Wealth that is not thieved, a government that is never Adhaarmic, and a life that knows no despair,
At your esteemed feet, you gave me love and support,
and made me one amongst the great people who serve you,
The sister of he who lies in sleep on the milk ocean, the one who lives in the town of Kadavoor,
Oh thee, who separates not from one side of the body of Amutheeswarar,
Oh Goddess with the hands that bestows boons, bless us with these, Oh Abhiraami”
- Abhiraami Bhattar
