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.

tapaha - world of intuition

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.

Dechhen Choiling Monastery Jalpaiguri

 

"None of us, I am sure, knows what is the pain of hunger, but one day I learne...d it from a little child. I found the child in the street and I saw in her face that terrible hunger that I have seen in many eyes. Without questioning her, I gave her a piece of bread, and then I saw that the little child was eating the bread crumb by crumb. And I said to her: 'Eat the bread.' And that little one looked at me and said; 'I am afraid because when the bread is finished, I will be hungry again.'

Hinduism does not advocate conversion. We believe that if a person faithfully follows the teachings of his religion, he will obtain salvation, which is the goal pointed out by all religions. There is, therefore, no need for extolling one religion or decrying another. Wisdom lies in developing the spirit of tolerance.

SRIMATI RADHARANI



"The transcendental goddess Srimati Radharani is the direct counterpart of Lord Sri Krishna. She is the central figure for all the goddesses of fortune. She possesses all attractiveness to attract the all-attractive Personality of Godhead. She is the primeval internal potency of the Lord."

Hanuman

Depiction of Hanuman
Chola Dynasty, 11th Century

Purifying my mind's mirror
with dust from the guru's lotus feet,
I will recount Rama's spotless fame,
which confers life's four ends.

I lack intelligence and understanding
and so invoke the Son of the Wind,
Give me strength, intelligence, and wisdom,
Take away my faults and failings.
