Gayatri Mantra

The Gayatri Mantra is the Universal Prayer enshrined in the Vedas, the most ancient scriptures of man. Universal Prayer means Prayer that can be recited with devotion for one's spiritual or material benefit in all ages by all men, women and children in any part of the world. The Gayatri mantra protects us because Gayatri is Annapurna, The Mother , the Force that animates all life.

We do not therefore have to wail for food, or for shelter when

we are under the protection of Annapurna,

the Divine Mother.

Gayatri Mantra (the mother of the vedas), the foremost mantra in hinduism and hindu beliefs, inspires wisdom. Its meaning is that "May the Almighty God illuminate our intellect to lead us along the righteous path". The mantra is also a prayer to the "giver of light and life" - the sun (savitur).

    Over 30 years ago I was given a small pink card with the following verse printed on it:

    Gayatri Mantra

    Oh Thou who gives sustenance to the Universe
    From whom all things proceed
    To whom all things return
    Reveal to us the face of the Spiritual Sun
    Hidden by a disc of golden light
    So that we may know the Truth
    And do our whole duty
    As we journey back to thy sacred feet

    This has been a constant reminder to me of so many things, including the transient nature of our existence in the big scheme of things; of the power of the Sun/Son without which there could be no sustainable life on Earth; our need to seek out our Truth and not become entrenched in the ego-driven drama being created to distract us from our journey, and our duty to remember who we really are and try to find our purpose for Being here.
