Shri Gayatri Mantra


Gayatri Mantra : The Gayatri Mantra is the form of eternal truth. It is the heart of all beings and the eternal Ved Mantra. Gayatri destroys the sins of the world. All the four Vedas have originated from this mantra :

ॐ भूर्भुव: स्व: तत्सवितुर्वरेण्यं ।

भर्गो देवस्य धीमहि, धीयो यो न: प्रचोदयात् ।।

"Aum Bhur Bhuvah Svaha

Tat Savitur Varenyam

Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi

Dhiyo Yonah Prachodayat"

Meaning: I meditate on Mother Gayatri that has originated from the Pranava Aum and via the middle mantra of the shlokas - Bhur, Bhuvah, Svaha - created the three worlds. May the compassionate Mother Gayatri give her children illumination and bring forth their pure intellect.

The Gayatri Mantra is a highly revered Sanskrit mantra with origins in the Vedas. It is a verse in the vedic Gayatri metre (whence the mantra's name), consting of 24 syllables, taken from a hymn of the Rigveda (3.62.10). Its recitation is always preceded by Auṃ. This prefixing of the mantra proper is prescribed already in the Taittiriya Aranyaka (2.11.1-8), which states that scriptural recitation was always to begin with the chanting of the syllable Aum, followed by the three Vyahrtis and the Gayatri verse.

Because the deva invoked in this mantra is Savitr, the mantra is also called Savitri. A personification of the mantra has come to be worshiped as a goddess Gayatri by some Hindus. The Gayatri Mantra is praised in several Hindu scriptures, including Manusmti, Harivamsa, and the Bhagavad Gita. The benefits of chanting the mantra have been described variously as wisdom, understanding, and enlightenment. It is an important part of the upanayanam (sacred thread) ceremony for young males in Hinduism, and has long been recited by Brahmin males as part of their daily rituals. Modern Hindu reform movements spread the practice of the mantra to include women and all castes - its use is now very widespread.
