Gayatri Mantra (for enlightenment)
Om bhur bhuva swah
Om tat savitur varenyam
Bhargo devasya dhimahi
Dhiyo yo nah prachodayat Om
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.
