Gayatri Mantra

Universal meaning applies to all of the Hindu chants. Gayatri Mantra is no exception. Shriram Sharma, a social reformer and philosopher, has translated it into, loosely, praise for the Universal Divine Energy, vital spiritual energy (Pran), the essence of life existence, positivity.

The Gayatri mantra is,[11] in Devanagari:

ॐ भूर्भुवः स्वः तत्सवितुर्वरेण्यं भर्गो देवस्य धीमहि धियो यो नः प्रचोदयात् ॥

oṃ bhūr bhuvaḥ svaḥ

tat savitur vareṇyaṃ

bhargo devasya dhīmahi

dhiyo yo naḥ pracodayāt

– Rigveda 3.62.10[13]

  2. Thank you for this ! I used to chant it when I was pregnant, and to my daughter when she was a baby…lots of memories, with a new meaning now!
    By the way, I am French and I don’t eat french fries ?

  3. This mantra is very special for me. During a trip to Nepal I got very ill and at the hospital they played it to me 108 times every day. Since then, when I listen to it I get positive vibes and good energy 🙂
