dear friends hello,
i am pasting one of the most powerful mantras of vedas it is called Gayatri Mantra, The rishi who has seen and heard during meditattion was Maharishi Viswamitra.He was the contemporary of Lord Ram, Rishi Vashista.As per valmiki ramayan, Lord ram has taken birth in dwapar yuga approx 17.7 Million year ago(The bridge he constructed to go to lanka is called adams bridge now).Sage valmiki a contemporary was inspired to write about Lord Ram.Lord Ram was the follower of Vedas, a yogi and highly realised soul.He was the desciple of Rishi Vashistha.He is considered to be an incarnation of Lord Vishnu.Lord ram was an ideal husband,son,brother and king.In india he is worshipped till date.
Dear friend this mantra the meaning of which i am giving is explained by my guru.Do learn to recite it, yogis say its the most powerful.Recite it as many times you want while meditating.I hope you all may get benefit from this.Finally pray to god to enable us to know the truth :
Everybody wants peace and happiness. Nobody wants a single sorrow. That is why the soul is bound with karma (deeds) theory that whatever the soul wants, it is not necessary that she will get it. It is rightly said that Man proposes, God disposes. However the origin of soul in human body is empowered to burn all the sorrows by virtue of worship, hard and pious deeds to get happy and peaceful life and even to attain salvation. In this pious way Gayatri mantra is very much beneficial for human beings. The Gayatri mantra is given in Yajurveda mantra 22/9, 30/2. 36/3, Saamveda mantra 1462 and Rigveda mantra 3/62/10. So this mantra has been praised in Manusmriti shlok 2/81 to say it the mouth of God.
The Gayatri mantra is as follows —
OM BHURBHUVAHA SWAHA TATA SAVITUR VARENYAM BHARGODEVASYA DHIMAHI DHIYO YO NHA PRACHODYAT
Om is a saviour of all and immortal. So this name is everlasting and we must remember it repeatedly. Bhuhu----base of breath i.e., creator (God). Bhuvaha----ends sorrows (God). Swaha----omnipresent (God) .Tata …he, Savitaha— creator of whole Universe .Varenyam— Acceptable .Devha—giver of pleasure. Bhagha—unsophisticated/clean/pure or Supreme. Dhimahi—meditate/concentrate i.e., we do meditation of Almighty God who is base of breath of all, ends sorrows, omnipresent, creator, acceptable , giver of pleasure, unsophisticated/Supreme. Now see second part----
Yaha—who, Dhiyha—mind, Nha— our, Prachodyat—enlightenment with wisdom i.e., the adorable God may enlighten our mind with wisdom.
Yajur Veda Matra 31/7 says that the Vedas are originated from God. So Gayatri Mantra is a complete prayer preached direct by God to us for our benefit which everyone must adhered to. Question may arise why? We see the sun, moon, earth, our body etc., and can guess that these have not been made by us except God. God has given us every facility like water, food, air, milk and family etc., then if we can not even remember/pray Him (God) in return, then it will be a direct thanklessness towards God, which is the most hatred sin.
Rig Veda Mantra 10/110/8 says that while worshipping we have to keep in mind the three aspects —1. Stuti (description of true qualities in God) 2.Upasana(to sit nearest to God) God being omnipresent is always within us but being indulged with materialistic world we can not realize Him. For Upasana—Worship the word "Dhimahi " i.e., meditation has been used in Gayatri Mantra. So when we keep aside the materialistic world for sometime both in morning and evening and meditate,worship, do japa or Yajna etc., then it is said that we are sitting nearest to God . 3.Prayer— by virtue of prayer we are inspired to do auspicious deeds .For prayer the words in Gayatri Mantra are Yha Dhiyha Nha Prachodyat i.e., we pray God to enlighten our mind with wisdom. Due to the lack of this tradition mostly we forget this primary requirement of worship with the result our worship may go in vain. The Gayatri Mantra is thus sound and fulfill the said requirements together as mentioned in above Rig-Veda. In the Vedas there is no other Mantra like this containing three aspects together.
