History and Significance of the Gayatri Mantra


Gayatri Mantra is referred in the Rig Veda, written in Sanskrit about 2500 to 3500 years ago, and the Gayatri mantra was chanted for many centuries before that. Gayatri Mantra is chanted, meditated and sung around the world with reverence and love. As a gift from Sage Vishwamitra to all humanity, it is said that this sacred prayer travels through the entire universe from the heart of the person chanting the mantra, appealing for peace and divine wisdom for all.

Gayatri Mantra says "May the divine light of the Supreme Being illuminate our intellect, to lead us along a path of righteousness". According to the Vedas, "Chanting Gayatri Mantra purifies the chanter and listening to the Gayatri Mantra purifies the listener. The Gayatri Mantra touches not only the mind but also the soul and is considered as one of the most powerful ways to touching God. The word Gayatri is derived from the words: gaya, meaning “vital energies” and trâyate, meaning “preserves, protects, gives deliverance, grants liberation”. Thus the two words "Gayatri Mantra" might be translated as “a prayer of praise that awakens the vital energies and gives liberation and deliverance from ignorance”.

Gayatri Mantra in english means that "We meditate on the glory of the Creator; Who has created the Universe; Who is worthy of Worship; Who is the embodiment of Knowledge and Light; Who is the remover of Sin and Ignorance; May He open our hearts and enlighten our Intellect. This mantra when uttered properly create specific vibrations and powers of righteous wisdom. In the Hindu mythology, many sages gained spiritual powers with years of meditation chanting the Gayatri Mantra.
