Gâyatri Mantra

 

Gâyatrî Mantra

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 all Sin and Ignorance;
May He enlighten our Intellect.


Om is bhûr, Om is bhuvas, Om is suvaha... Om is everything

bhûhû - earth, the physical world
bhuvaha - astral/desire/breath, the world of becoming
suvaha - mental, the world of thinking
mahaha - causal, silent mind, the world of emotion
janaha - world of creative generation
tapaha - world of intuition
satyaM - world of Absolute Truth

om tat savitur vareNyaM

bhargo devasya dhîmahi

dhiyo yo nah prachodayât

A succinct and delightful translation of the Gâyatrî Mantra by S. Krishnamurthy is:

We meditate upon the radiant Divine Light
of that adorable Sun of Spiritual Consciousness;
May it awaken our intuitional consciousness.

*

bhûr bhuvas suvar om
Om âpo jyotih rasomritam brahma
bhûr bhuvas suvar om

*

Om, the Water, the Light, the very Essence in which we exist, the Absolute, the physical world, the astral realm, the mental realm, all are Om.

Quotes from various Upanishads describing the nature of Om:

I will give you the Word all the scriptures glorify and which all spiritual disciplines express, to attain which aspirants lead of a life of sense-restrain and selflessness. It is Om. This symbol of Brahman is the highest. Realizing it, one finds complete fulfillment of all one's longings. It is of the greatest support to all seekers.

Katha Unpanishad (I, ii, 15-17) 

Take the great bow of the sacred scriptures, place on it the arrow of devotion; then draw the bowstring of meditation, and aim at the target, the Lord of Love. Om is the bow, the soul is the arrow, and Brahman is called its target. Now draw the bowstring of meditation and hitting the target, be One with It.

Mundaka Upanishad (II, ii, 3-4)

Fire is not seen until one firestick rubs across another, though the fire is still there, hidden. So does Brahman remain hidden until being revealed by the mantram Om. Let your body be the lower firestick and the mantram Om be the upper. Rub them against each other in meditation and realize Brahman.

Shvetashvatara Upanishad (1, 13-14)

Create your own unique rendering:

 

For example, here is my current rendering:

We meditate upon the Divine Radiance,
that One Light which deserves our worship,
the One whose noble thought energizes and directs our awakening.

Hallo Eva, das wäre noch komplizierter, da es ein weiter Weg von meiner Oberlausitz nach Berlin ist. Liebe Grüße und eine schöne neue Woche.

I like India

Comment by Eva on October 11, 2015 at 3:23pm

Danke Lothar. Hier bei mir gehe ich direkt zur Botschaft.

Hallo Eva, ich muss alles zu einer speziellen Firma in Berlin senden und die gehen dann wegen dem Visum zur Botschaft. Das kostet viel und dauert lange. Viele Grüße von Lothar

In India when we meet and part we often say, 'Namaste', which means: I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides; I honor the place in you of love, of light, of truth, of peace. I honor the place within you where if you are in that place in you and I am in that place in me, there is only one of us.

Ram Dass

It's also a sign of Good relation between two persons. Namaste gives the guarantee of meeting them again while parting.

Why, what is complicated, Lothar?

Comment by Lothar Seifert on October 10, 2015 at 5:56pm
