Gayatri Mantra


Om Bhur Bhuva Swaha,
Tat Savitur Varenyam,
Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi,
Dhiyo Yo Nah Prachodayat.

who subsists as all three Kalas (Lapses of Time: past, present and future),
in all three Lokas (worlds or realms of experience),
and all three Gunas (Universal Attributes: harmony, agitation and inertial).
I pray to you to illuminate my intellect and dispel my ignorance, just as the splendorous sunlight dispels all darkness.
I pray to you to make my intellect serene and bright.

The Gayatri Mantra is the most sacred of the Rg Veda Mantras.
Gayatri means, “the savior of the singer.”
Reciting this prayer protects one from harm, dispels the darkness of ignorance and illuminates the world.
