Gayatri Mantra, A Prayer to Regain Your Strength, Reconnect to Your Essence

I feel quite sorry that my postings a bit slow down in the last couple of weeks! Things always come, some may think they’re distractions, but they’re just normal way of life – come and go. We’re exposed to all kinds of situations in everyday life, and these different situations bring us different levels of energy frequency that will influence our emotions, feelings, thoughts and actions. We’re not supposed at all times to keep on in a high mood, in momentum straight towards our next station (Life has not destination, it just continuously unfolds, moving forward); at times when you feel low, feel weak, even don’t know what to do, just remember we’re spiritual beings living in our physical body which is subject to the nature circumtances – the sense feelings. At these times, one way to help to turn the wheel is to chant the Mantras. Gayatri Mandra is one of the most powerful Mantras for us to reconnect to the Divine Energy.

The Sanskrit syllables:

Oṃ bhūr bhuvaḥ svaḥ
tát savitúr váreṇ(i)yaṃ
bhárgo devásya dhīmahi
dhíyo yó naḥ pracodáyāt

General Translation

We meditate upon the spiritual effulgence of that adorable Supreme Divine reality
Who is the source of the physical, the astral and the heavenly spheres of existence.
May that Supreme Divine being enlighten our intellect, so that we may realize the Supreme Truth.

Syllable Translation

Om: The Supreme Being
Bhur: The Physical plane, earth
Bhuvah: The Astral plane, air
Svaha: The Celestial plane, heaven
Tat: Ultimate Reality
Savitur: The Source of All
Varenyam: Fit to be worshiped
Bhargo: The Spiritual effulgence
Devasya: Divine Reality
Dhimahi: We meditate
Dhiyo: Intellect
Yo: Which
Nah: Our
Prachodayat: Enlighten

Quiet yourself, sit straight, close your eyes, relax, let the Mantra flow through you, don’t try to remember the words yet if the Mantra is new to you, just let the music flow through you… you may start humming … feel the feeling… you will feel the power of it…

Note: it’s not recommended to sing it yet before you can pronounce them accurately, since each syllable has it’s specific and powerful meaning!

Let me know how you feel about it!
