Gayatri Mantra | the Supreme Mantra of Veda

Om Bhoor Bhuvah Svah
Tat Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi
Dhiyo Yonah Prachodayaat.
We meditate on the splendor of the Creator;

Who has manifested the Worlds;

Who alone is worthy of Worship;

Who is the embodiment of Knowledge and Light;

Who is the remover of all duality and ignorance;

May He awaken us.

The Gayatri Mantra is a highly revered mantra in Hinduism, second only to the mantra Om. The Gayatri Mantra is first recorded in the Rig Veda which was written in Sanskrit about 2500 to 3500 years ago, and by some reports, the mantra may have been chanted for many generations before that. "Gayatri Mantra" might be translated as: a prayer of praise that awakens the vital energies and gives liberation.

Humble Submission and Selfless Unity | Many of the greatest prayers, such as the Gayatri Mantra from the ancient rishis of India, the Fatiha which was received by the prophet Muhammad, and the Lord's Prayer which was given to us by Jesus, all share some magnificent similarities, illustrating the highest and noblest principles of prayer.

In each of these great prayers, the opening lines are a humble recognition that there is a Greater Power, and that all that we receive comes from the will of that Greater Power. Such prayer is an act of humble submission to That Which is beyond our understanding.

And the final lines of each of these great prayers, in humble submission to a Greater Power, acknowledge the gifts of understanding and awakening which are continually bestowed upon all of mankind, even though so few are even aware of the gifts. This humble recognition of the gifts that are constantly showered upon us is an essential element of the highest spiritual practices that we have been given, leading us toward the understand that we can and should rise above our differences and divisions, emerging from our delusion of separation and becoming aware of the Light of Unity which already shines upon all of creation.

If i am to translate this mantra more close to its original word meanings and appreciate it from the understanding of Surah Fatiha, we may find how closely it resembles the Opening Chapter of the Quran. Indeed all paths point towards the One.

The One! Lord of the worlds
That Light, worthy alone of worship
The Divine Splendor is upon Which we contemplate
May the One guide us!
