During a special Gayatri yagna retreat at the Shree Peetha Nilaya ashram, Premavatar Sri Swami Vishwananda recorded this beautiful Gayatri CD. As He explained, this most ancient and sacred mantra is also called "The Mother of the Vedas" and "The Mother of all Mantras" as it contains in Itself all the mantras. The ancient Hindu scriptures describe how the sage Vishwamitra was given the Gayatri mantra by the Supreme Being as a reward for his many years of deep penance and meditation. This was to be a gift for all humanity. It is said that this sacred prayer spirals through the entire universe from the heart of the chanter, appealing for peace and divine wisdom for all. The Gayatri Mantra inspires wisdom in us. In very basic but beautiful language, it says "May the divine light of the Supreme Being illuminate our intellect, to lead us along a path of righteousness". But the mantra does even more - it opens up your heart. And how well we know, when both our minds and our hearts open, we open ourselves up for new possibilities. For many devout Hindus, the Gayatri is seen as a Divine awakening of the individual mind and the individual soul – Atman -- and within it, a way to Union with the collective consciousness - Brahman. Understanding and simply loving the essence of the Gayatri Mantra is considered by many to be one of the most powerful ways to touching God. It is highly recommended to chant the Gayatri mantra 3 times at sunrise, 3 times at noon and 3 times at sunset. On the CD Premavatar Sri Swami Vishwanada sings various Gayatri Mantras to open our consciousness. It contains the main and world-renowned Gayatri Mantra: om bhūr bhuvah svaha tat savitūr varenyam bhargo devasya dhīmahi dhyo yo nah prachodayāt Meaning: “Oh Divine Mother, we meditate on Thee as the Supreme Light that illumines the earth, the sky and the heavens, the adorable Sun of Divine Consciousness that illumines the devas and dissipates all darkness and ignorance, through Thy Grace may you enlighten our intellect and awaken the same brilliant Divine Light in us.” ...as well as various other Gayatri Mantras to help us on our spiritual path.
