The Beautiful, Blessed and Ancient Gayatri Mantra and Mahamrityunjaya Mantra
“Om bhur bhuvah svah Tat savitur varenyam Bhargo devasya dhimahi Dhiyo yo nah prachodayat”
In India, one of the most sacred and oldest available Divine hymns is the Gayatri Mantra. In the ancient Vedic literature, this mantra is dedicated to the deity Lord Sun. In our life, the sun represents life-giving energy.
This sacred mantra is considered to be the most important mantra written out in Gayatri meter. Gayatri is personified as a goddess, the consort of Brahma (Sarasvati), and mother of the Vedas.
It should not be chanted for the purpose of material gain, physical or otherwise. This mantra appeals to pure Consciousness to illumine our hearts and minds. It is a prayer to the Supreme Self to unveil itself and manifest as brilliant wisdom in our life. By repeating this mantra with the right understanding of its sacred meaning, the ordinary negative tendencies in the human mind can be erased. This mantra also is believed to alleviate many fears and will help with the start and successful outcome of any important work.
It begins with the letter AUM (OM). AUM being the sound symbol of Supreme Reality, it is considered to be the first vibration of sound emanating at the beginning of creation.
The chanting of this mantra is said to have healing, life-giving qualities and elevates the purest, highest consciousness in us; the inner center of our being around which matter functions with mathematical precision. Just as the entire solar system revolves around the sun, without Atman (the light that is our consciousness), bodily matter becomes dead. Without the sun, life would not have been possible. Learn and chant this spiritually charged mantra for powerful energy and blessings!
There is also another very beautiful and important Mantra called Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra:
Om Tryambakam Yajamahe Sugandhim Pushtivardhanam Urvarukamiva Bandhanam Mrityor Mukshiya Mamritat Om Shanti,Shanti,Shantihi
We worship the three-eyed Lord (Shiva) who is full of sweet fragrance and nourishes human beings. May he liberate me from the fear of death like the cucumber of the vine freed from its stem, but not from the nectar of immortality.
