they not only convey some meaning but their chanting also creates specific energies.
Gayatri All
is aWorld
mantra Gayatri Pariwar
which inspires (/)
righteous wisdom. It means that the A lmighty God may
illuminate our intellect, which may lead us on the righteous path. This is the most
important prayer. A ll the problems of a person are solved if he is endowed with righteous
wisdom. Having far-sighted wisdom, a man is neither entangled in avoidable calamity nor
does he tread a wrong path. A wise man intuitively finds solutions to his problems. Those
(.navbar-collapse)
who lack this clear-sightedness find themselves always facing problems and ever living
from crisis it crises. The worship of Gayatri mantra bestows the boon of righteous wisdom.
The teachings of and the powers incorporated in Gayatri mantra fulfil this purpose.
Righteous wisdom starts emerging as soon as J ap of this mantra is tak en up as a
Sadhana.

In short it is a prayer to the A lmighty Supreme God, the Creator of entire cosmos, the essence
of our life ex istence, who removes all our pains and sufferings and grants happiness
beseeching His divine grace to imbibe within us His Divinity and Brilliance which may purify us
and guide our righteous wisdom on the right path.

A man gets imbued with divine q ualities contemplating and meditating on this meaning of
Gayatri. One should contemplate on these feelings daily and regularly. Three prayer-filled
meditations are given here which should be silently recited and proj ected on the mental
screen through imagination.

1 . The A lmighty God, who is k nown as pranav pervades all the three Lok as, viz , Bhooha-
lok , Bhuvaha-lok and Swaha-lok . He is Omnipresent. The cosmos is physical
manifestation of God who pervades its each and every particle. I am seeing Him
everywhere. I would always refrain from evil thoughts and evil deeds and perform true
worship of God by ex tending cooperation in promoting happiness, peace and beauty in
this universe which is His creation .
2 . This (tat) God is ex tremely bright (savitur), most ex alted (varenyam), devoid of sin
(bhargo) and divine (devasya). I visualise this Divinity within me, in my soul. By such
All World
contemplation, I amGayatri Pariwar
becoming (/)
illumined, virtues are growing in all the layers of my
being. I am being saturated with these virtues, these characteristics, of God.

3 . That God may inspire (prachodayat) our (naha) intellect, wisdom (dhiyo) and lead us
on righteous path. May our intellect, the intellects of our family members and of all of us,

be purified and may He (.navbar-collapse)
lead us on the righteous path. On getting righteous wisdom, which
is the greatest achievement and is the source of all the happiness in this world, we may
be able to enj oy celestial bliss in this life and mak e our human life purposeful.

We should contemplate and meditate on these three prayer-filled meditations slowly and
pausing for a moment on each word and an imaginary picture of that word should be
drawn in the mind.

While contemplating upon the first meditation, it should be imagined that God pervades all
the three Lok as, the earth, heaven and Patal (nethermost world). God should be
visualised pervading these Lok as in the form of light, heat and electricity, life force (Pran)
etc. This vast universe is the living physical image of God. The Sadhak should try to
visualise in his imagination a glimpse of the A ll-pervading Omni-present God j ust as was
given to A rj un by Lord K rishna. He should imagine that God is all around him and he is
sitting in God s lap. It should be pondered how evil thoughts and evil actions could remain
lodged in his mind and body in the presence of the Omni-potent Divinity. He should
imagine that each and every manifestation of this universal Godhead is adorable and that
well being lies in selfless service of this universe, this vast humanity and in beautifying
God s creation.

While reflecting on the second meditation, one should imagine the ex tremely bright and
luminous, supremely ex alted God adorned with all divine q ualities, seated on the throne of
Sadhak s heart. God can be also visualised in the form of Virat Purush.

(2 ) Ram, K rishna, Vishnu, Gayatri, Sarsvati etc. and

(3 ) in the flame of a lamp. God can be meditated upon in male or in mother s form
according to one s own sentiments. God is female as well as male. Gayatri Sadhak s
prefer to meditate on the A lmighty God in the form of Gayatri Mata. Brilliance, supreme
ex cellence, utmost piety, purity and divine righteousness should be visualised in the
beautiful image of Gayatri Mata. It should be imagined that such a beautiful and virtuous
divine power permanently dwells in the sadhak s heart and permeates all the pores of his
body.

While think ing on the third meditation, it should be felt that the divine power of Gayatri has
caught the intellect and feelings of our head and heart and is guiding them on the path of
righteousness. We are pure, concerted and enthusiastic and are getting attained to move
in the direction of righteousness with the grace of Gayatri Mata.
These three k inds of prayer filled meditations embodied in Gayatri are symbolic of Gyan-
yog, Bhak ti -yog and k arma-yog. In fact, contemplation of the meaning of Gayatri amounts
All World
to immersion Gayatriof Pariwar
in the Triveni (/)
these three k inds of yog.
By such contemplation, the meaning of Gayatri Mantra is fully assimilated in the heart of
the Sadhak . The result is that in a short time his mind gets diverted from evil thoughts and
evil deeds and he starts tak ing enthusiastic j oy in righteous think ing and good actions.
Howsoever little this tendency may be in the beginning it is almost certain that if the
(.navbar-collapse)
practice persists, the inner-self of the Sadhak becomes more and more awak ened and the
ultimate aim of life draws closer and closer.
