The Meaning

“O thou existence Absolute, Creator of the three dimensions, we contemplate upon thy divine light. May He stimulate our intellect and bestow upon us true knowledge.”

Or simply,

“O Divine mother, our hearts are filled with darkness. Please make this darkness distant from us and promote illumination within us.”

Let us take each word of the Gayatri Mantra and try to understand its inherent meaning.

Gayatri Mantra Meaning.
The Gayatri Mantra.
Silently thinking or speaking or chanting the Gayatri Mantra influences the physical body, clears the emotional body, leading one to the inner heart1. The Gayatri stimulates and facilitates insightfulness and awakening to the Truth within all. Our energy centers, levels and rhythms are activated by the measure of breaths that are drawn in through the nostrils and released during recitation of the Gayatri Mantra (even during silent repetition)2. This balances electromagnetic rhythm and energy currents in the body with prana. Prana is an undetectable life force energy which is similar to orgone3.
During recitation, all elements of the mantra are in use; even the breath is a precision instrument. It all works together, like an orchestra and the conductor. The breath, voice, meditation and intention, efficiently and effortlessly function (like the sun efficiently and effortlessly shines).

The First Word Om (Aum)

It is also called Pranav because its sound emanates from the Prana (vital vibration), which feels the Universe. The scripture says “Aum Iti Ek Akshara Brahman” (Aum that one syllable is Brahman).

When you pronounce AUM:
A – emerges from the throat, originating in the region of the navel
U – rolls over the tongue
M – ends on the lips
A – waking, U – dreaming, M – sleeping
It is the sum and substance of all the words that can emanate from the human throat. It is the primordial fundamental sound symbolic of the Universal Absolute.

The “Vyahrities”: Bhuh, Bhuvah & Svah

The above three words of the Gayatri, which literally means “past,” “present,” and “future,” are called Vyahrities. Vyahriti is that which gives knowledge of entire cosmos or “ahriti”. The scripture says: “Visheshenh Aahritih sarva viraat, praahlaanam prakashokaranh vyahritih”. Thus, by uttering these three words, the chanter contemplates the Glory of God that illumines the three worlds or the regions of experience.

The Remaining Words

  • Tat simply means “that” because it defies description through speech or language, the “Ultimate Reality.”
  • Savitur means “Divine Sun” (the ultimate light of wisdom) not to be confused with the ordinary sun.
  • Varenium means “adore”
  • Bhargo means “illumination”
  • Devasya means “Divine Grace
  • Dheemahi means “we contemplate”
  • Dhi means intellect
  • Yo means “who”
  • Nah means “ours”
  • Prachodayat means “requesting / urging / praying”

The last five words constitute the prayer for final liberation through the awakening of our true intelligence.
