Om Bhur Bhuvah Suvah

Tat Savitur Varenyam

Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi

Dhiyo Yo Nah Prachodayat

Meaning

We contemplate the glory of Light illuminating the three worlds: gross, subtle, and causal. I am that vivifying power, love, radiant illumination, and divine grace of universal intelligence. We pray for the divine light to illumine our minds

Goddess Gaythri confers the boon of Intelligence as Gayathri, Protection as Savithri and Learning as Saraswathi. Gayathri is therefore called Sarvadevata Swarupini.

By chanting at least twice a day – morning and evening – the sin committed unknowingly that day are destroyed and left over Karma is burnt. The person gets closer and closer to Divinity.

Chant the Mantra 3 times when you are having a bath – it will serve the dual purpose of chanting as well as performing Abisheka to the Mantra. Chant 3 times before eating – you would have not only purified the food, but also offered the food to the Mantra. If you do it everyday, you need not chant any other Mantra. It protects you from calamities and confers upon you intelligence, learning and success.

Just as the sun dispels darkness, it drives out the ignorance, indolence and sloth in you. It will aid in developing Prajnana, Sujnana and Vijnana. I WISH that you chant Gayathri at least 2 times a day during your lifetime.

– Swami (from the book ‘Sri Satya Sai, Anandadayi’)

Gayathri is the mother of all vedas, protector of all living beings. You should realize the truth that you have had a second birth after initiation into Gayathri mantra. This Gayathri mantra has to be chanted three times a day. The best time to chant Gayathri is around 6 am, 12 noon and 6 pm. Goddess Gayathri manifests in three phases and confers the boon of intelligence as Goddess Gayathri, protection as Goddess Savitri and learning as Goddess Sarasvati.

Gayathri is therefore called sarva devata svarupini. By chanting the name of the mantra at least twice a day – in the morning and in the evening – the sins committed unknowingly that day are destroyed and the left over karma is burnt. The person gets purified and in the course of time gets closer and closer to Divinity.

Nowadays many people say they do not have the time for Gayathri japa. It is not a question of lack of time. It is a lack of interest. Anyone who has a will to do, can do it atleast twice daily. Chant the mantra when you are having a bath – it will serve the dual purpose of chanting the mantra as well as performing abisheka to the mantra. Chant the mantra thrice befor eating the lunch – you would have not only purified the food, but also made the food as naivedya to the mantra. Repeat the same in the evening. If you do it everyday, you need not have to chant any other mantra. You will be making your lives sacred. Gayathri is all-powerful and protects you from calamities and confers upon you intelligence, learning and success.
