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 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.

Let we all get immersed in the colours of divine love, compassion and human values. "Happy Holi."

Help for children in Ladakh

A request to helping people. Who can help poor children in Ladakh with a donation? We collect money to send warm winter clothing and school supplies to Ladakh. Below is a letter from a friend from Ladakh, who brings the things to the children in a mountain village in the Himalayas.

Who would like to help, please send me a message: web@l-seifert.de .

First I want to thank you for your kind concern. These children are very poor and need help. Winter here in Ladakh is very cold and long. Especially this year the mercury has gone down very low (-20 to -30 degree Celsius). Schools in winter remain closed for 4-5 months. Familys cannot afford schools hostel accommodation because of their financial situation. However we have somehow arranged a room where they can stay together, keep themselves warm and also carry out their studies. Heating facilities are not available. Families stay together in one room or so. They keep their cattle (if they have) in the ground floor and themselves stay in the room above it. This is a local way of keeping warm and cuts down expenses on fire food and others. Electrical energy is expensive. However the govt has provided solar lamps to poor families but many of them are non functional. They are leading a very pathetic and difficult life. Still if you look at these children, they are so full of life with big dreams in their eyes. They all are very keen to study and to get to a respectable position for themselves and their parents. Many of them are very skilful and talented. If only they get a good help from somewhere their lives can get better. Thanks again and I hope the best for these poor children.
