Aum bhur bhuvah svah

Tat savitur varenyam

Bhargo devasya dhimahi

Dhiyo yo nah pracodayat

 

 

We meditate on the transcendental glory of
the Deity Supreme,

who is inside the heart of the earth,

inside the life of the sky,
and inside the soul of the heaven.

May He stimulate and illumine our minds.

 

 

 

Commentary

 

The Gayatri Mantra is the most hallowed mantra of the Vedas. It is the mother of all the mantras. Mantra means incantation. A mantra can be a one-syllable word or a few words, a sentence or a few sentences. The Gayatri Mantra can offer to the sincere seeker the Light of the Infinite, the Delight of the Eternal, and the Life of the Immortal.
