~About~ GAYATRI, THE TRUTH
Triple aspects of Gayatri
Gayatri, the mother of the Vedas, is known
by three names: Gayatri, Savitri, and Saraswathi.
It is believed that she is present in all three
forms within the human spirit at all times.
Gayatri mantra is not related to any
particular time, place, or person.
Gayatri represents the mastery of the senses.
Gayatri is the protector of the five pranas (life forces) in humans.
When Gayatri acts as protector of the life-forces,
she is known as Savitri. Savitri signifies the teaching
of truth. Savitri is known in the puranic story as
the devoted wife who brought her husband back to life.
Savitri is the presiding deity of the five pranas.
She protects those who lead a life of Truth.
Saraswathi is the presiding deity of speech (vaak).
The three represent purity in thought, word,
and deed (thrikarana shuddhi).
When one's intelligence and intuition are
developed by recitation of the mantra, the
activating deity is Gayatri. Gayatri is described as
''the embodiment of all goddesses (Sarvadhevathaa-swaruupini)''.
The five faces of Gayatri
Gayatri is said to have five faces
and hence is called Panchamukhi.
The five faces embody the mantra itself and are represent below:
1. Om (the Pranava).
The Pranava Principle represents the
eight different forms of wealth (ashta-aishvarya).
2. Bhur Bhuvas Suvah: the unity of body, mind and soul.
3. Thath-Savithur-varenyam: (with line 4) translates to,
light dispels darkness --without light, darkness will not go
4. Bhargo Dhevasya dheemahi: translates to,
''Throw away the darkness.''
5. Dheyo yo hah prachodayaath: translates to,
''Let the effulgence of the Divine dispel the darkness of ignorance.''.
Gayatri means 'that which saves, when repeated'!
It is the torch of spiritual wisdom (jnana)
Stotra (description of the glory), dhyana
(meditation), and prarthana (prayer) are
all contained in the Gayatri Mantra.
