Gayatri Mantra Arati

Gayatri Mantra (for enlightenment)

Om bhur bhuva swah

Om tat savitur varenyam

Bhargo devasya dhimahi

Dhiyo yo nah prachodayat Om

 

Translation:

We meditate on the Supreme Light of the three universes.

May It enlighten our consciousness.

 

The Gayatri Mantra has been chanted throughout India for millennia. It has its origin in the Rig Veda, so it is perhaps the most ancient mantra of all. We chant it, along with the Mahamrityunjaya Mantra, every Sunday before our Ananda Sunday Service. This is a beautiful recording of Swami Kriyananda chanting the Gayatri Mantra 7 times. That version has the ‘seal of approval’ of some pundits in India who listened to Kriyananda chant the Gayatri.

We chant it, along with the Mahamrityunjaya Mantra, every Sunday before our Ananda Sunday Service. This is a beautiful recording of Swami Kriyananda chanting the mantra 7 times, to the electronically multiplied sound of 120 tambouras (the Indian musical drone). This version has the ‘seal of approval’ of some pundits in India who listened to Kriyananda chant the mantra. You can find a CD of it being chanted 108 times here.

Here is the Mahamrityunjaya Mantra Arati.
