The Power of Shri Gayatri Mantra
Man is often blinded by abundance of wealth. He forgets his true nature and attaches great importance to the body. Karma is essential but man should not perform it solely for the fruit. When he does so, the karma becomes a preparation for prarabda karma of next birth and thus he is not liberated from the cycle of birth and death. The Gayatri mantra is a treasure that has been given to man. It is like the third eye which reveals the inner vision. The inner vision has to be developed by the proper recitation of the Gayatri mantra in order to get spiritual enlightenment.
The Shri Gayatri mantra is the gift of the Vedas. And this is Gayatri Mantra:
‘Om Bhur Bhuva Svaha Tat Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi Dhiyo Yonah Prachodayat’
This means that the person or the soul present in the physical body meditates on the spiritual effulgence of the all powerful God who is the foundation of the physical, astral and heavenly spheres of existence. The mantra is a plea to the divine power to enlighten the intellect so that the person can become conscious and comprehend the supreme deity.
Gayatri mata or mother is the cosmic mother. She is the shakthi or force that gives life to all objects. She has been portrayed with five faces. ‘Om’ or pranava is the first face. Pranava represents ashta aishwarya or eight forms of wealth. ‘Bhur bhuva svaha’ denotes the second face. The third face portrays ‘tat savitur varenyam’. The fourth face represents ‘bhargo devasya dheemahi’. The fifth face denotes ‘dhiyo yonah prachodayat’.
Sage Viswamitra revealed the Shri Gayatri mantra. It is addressed to the power of the sun. The Shri Gayatri mantra is written in the Vedas- Rig Veda, III 62.10. It has huge powers. The sun is the presiding god of the mantra. The person who recites the mantra will be redeemed. The Gayatri mantra represents the gist of the Vedas. Chanting the mantra sharpens the intellect and also fosters it.
The Shri Gayatri mantra relieves a person of diseases and misery. It bestows bliss, money and power. The person will be able to get the Surya Tejas or the power transmitted by the sun. The mantra should not be treated in a light manner because each word has special power and should be pronounced in the correct way.
The Shri Gayatri mantra is referred to as Veda mata or mother of Vedas. The mantra preserves, protects and saves the person from death and liberates him from the cycle of birth and death. The proper recitation is stressed upon because it will have opposite effect otherwise.
The mantra invokes the supreme power present in the sun and the three worlds to stimulate rouse and build up the intelligence so that the chanter becomes successful in all fields. The mantra should not be chanted mechanically. It should reflect the true yearning for liberation in man’s mind. The Vedas represent God and the Shri Gayatri mantra should be chanted with humility and devotion to get the complete effect. The person who chants the mantra should be aware of the power of the Shri Gayatri mantra. He should have the required level of reverence and eagerness.
