Chant The Gayatri Mantra For Creation, Unity And Life

by Mindvalley December 23, 2017

The Gayatri Mantra is dedicated to Savitr, the Sun God.

It is believed by practitioners that reciting the Gayatri mantra gives us wisdom and enlightenment through the light of the Sun who embodies and represents the inspiration of the universe.

This powerful mantra has been compared to the simplicity and potency of The Lord’s Prayer and is used in many initiation rituals through Hindu culture.

A favorite among those who practice meditation, The Gayatri Mantra focuses on creation, unity, light, and life.

Who are Gayatri and Savitr?

Gayatri is all scriptures, and the Gayatri Mantra personified. Because of the power and popularity of the Gayatri Mantra, she is now known as a goddess and is said to be present when and wherever her name is chanted.

She passes good thoughts on to those who worship her. She is depicted as having five faces and is also believed to embody all Goddesses.

Savitr, the Sun God, has golden eyes, and broad golden arms. He has yellow hair and rides a radiant horse-drawn carriage.

He is said to be the light of the universe.

He is the protector of all beings. He gives immortality to the gods, and life to mankind.

The Benefits of the Gayatri Mantra

The Gayatri Mantra has many purposes, and therefore, many benefits. The most common are:

1) Uniting the physical, spiritual and psychological for inner peace and serenity

2) Cleansing the mind, body, and soul of negativity.

3) Protection from harm

4) Illumination, or in other words, wisdom.

5) Relief from pain and illness, by strengthening the immune system

6) Increased concentration

7) Wards off stress and anxiety, calming the nerves. The Gayatri Mantra

The Gayatri Mantra is most commonly chanted as:

Om buhr, bhuva, swaha

om tat savitur varenyam

bhargo devasya dheemahi

dhiyo yonaha prachodayat

There are many translations for this chant, but it is accepted as meaning:

Let us meditate on that excellent glory of the divine vivifying Sun, May he enlighten our understandings.

How and when to Chant the Gayatri Mantra

Since the Gayatri Mantra is one of cleansing it is important to cleanse yourself before or as you say it.

It is recommended to say the Gayatri Mantra at least three times a day; in the morning, the afternoon and the evening/ before you go to bed. There is no limit to the number of times you can say the Gayatri Mantra, as long as you are consistent in your chanting.

When saying the Gayatri Mantra it is important to focus on what Gayatri and Savitr stand for, as well as the blessings you would like to receive from them.

For this reason, it is best to meditate in a quiet area, when you have time for yourself and will not be interrupted in your chanting.

What’s important is to focus, and to feel the mantra taking its effect on you.

Have You Been Paying Enough Attention To Your Spirit?

See, many of us are mind-driven. We make most of our decisions based on logic and critical thinking.

But logic and critical thinking aren’t always the best option. When we apply them, we start to believe there isn’t enough to go around, and we become fiercely competitive.

This leads to a path of anxiety, depression, and self-destruction.

But when you switch to a spirit-driven lifestyle, you start to see the truth - that the Universe is kind and full of abundance. You understand that there’s more than enough to go around.

Your life fills up with joy and light. You realize that there are incredible opportunities all around you.

Choosing to follow a spirit-driven lifestyle can truly enhance your life.
