The GAYATRI MANTRA” the most powerful hymn in the world
What is the Gayatri Mantra? Considered as one of the most universal of all Vedic Mantras, and one of the most recited Mantras by Hindus. The Mantra has been chronicled in Rig Veda, one of the four canonical sacred texts of Hinduism known as the Vedas, which has existed in the written form for about 2500 to 3500 years. The Gayatri Mantra consists of the following words: Om Bhur Bhuva Svaha (Om) Tat Savitur Varenyam Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi Dhiyo Yo Nahah Prachodayaat, (Om)
ॐ भूर्भुव: स्व: तत्सवितुर्वरेण्यं । भर्गो देवस्य धीमहि, धीयो यो न: प्रचोदयात् ।।
Aum Bhur Bhuvah Swah, Tat Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi, Dhiyo Yo Nah Prachodayat
God is dear to me like my own breath, He is the Dispeller of my pains, and Giver of happiness.
I meditate on the supremely adorable Light of the Divine Creator, that it may inspire my thought and understanding.
Dr.Howard Steingeril, an American scientist, collected Mantras, Hymns and invocations from all over the world and tested for their strength in his Physiology Laboratory&
Hindu’s Gayatri Mantra produced 110,000 sound waves /second.
This was the highest and was found to be the most powerful hymn in the world.
Through the combination of sound or sound waves of a particular frequency, this Mantra is claimed to be capable of developing specific spiritual potentialities.
The Hamburg university initiated research into the efficacy of the Gayatri Mantra both on the mental and physical plane of CREATION. The GAYATRI MANTRA is broadcasted daily for 15 minutes from 7 P.M. onwards over Radio Paramaribo, Surinam, South America for the past two years, and in Amsterdam, Holland for the last six months.
The above information is worth circulating and sharing with one and all! How rich and wonderful are our Vedas. Listening to Gayatri Mantra results in awakening trillions of neurons in the brain, only four percent of which stay awake in the ordinary brain? When this happens man becomes super human.

What is a Mantra?
A Mantra is a word or sound that is repeated frequently out loud or in the mind that results in muting the constant chatter and noise of our thoughts. The word has its roots in Sanskrit where ‘man’ means mind and ‘tra’ means instrument, meaning an instrument of the mind. The sound ‘tra’ also refers to the English word ‘free’. Therefore mantras are tools that can help free the mind from negative states
Mantras are also used in meditation to help one reach into that clear and calm state of awareness that is characteristic of a deep meditative state. •They originated from the Vedic, Yoga and Tantric traditions and have found their way across the world into many of the world religions in some form or another.
Power Of Mantras • Mantras are based on the principles of vibration. Everything in the universe is made up of vibrating masses of energy that vibrate to a set frequency. • Mantras when chanted or heard create specific vibrations inside an individual and this in turn create a resonance that creates the corresponding manifestation in reality. • Each Mantra in Sanskrit has a specific meaning attached to it based on its impact at an energetic level.
What is the Gayatri Mantra?
Considered as one of the most universal of all Vedic Mantras, and one of the most recited Mantras by Hindus. The Mantra has been chronicled in Rig Veda, one of the four canonical sacred texts of Hinduism known as the Vedas, which has existed in the written form for about 2500 to 3500 years. The Gayatri Mantra consists of the following words: Om Bhur Bhuva Svaha (Om) Tat Savitur Varenyam Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi Dhiyo Yo Nahah Prachodayaa
The Gāyatrī Mantra is a highly revered mantra, based on a Vedic Sanskrit verse from a hymn of the Rigveda (3.62.10), attributed to the rishi Viśvāmitra. The mantra is named for its vedic gāyatrī metre.
Its recitation is traditionally preceded by oṃ and the formula bhūr bhuvaḥ svaḥ, known as the mahāvyāhṛti (“great utterance”).
The Gayatri Mantra is repeated and cited very widely in vedic literature, and praised in several well-known classical Hindu texts such as Manusmṛti,Harivamsa,and the Bhagavad Gita.
The stanza is the subject of esoteric treatment and explanation in some major upanishads, including mukhya works such as the Brhadaranyaka Upanishad,the Svetasvatara Upanishad and the Maitri Upanishad;as well as other well-known works such as the Jaiminiya Upanishad Brahmana.
Just like the Sun annihilates darkness, so does the Gayatri Mantra destroy ignorance. The Gayatri Mantra invokes the power and radiance of the Sun to energize all earthly life, to destroy our sins and to reveal the Supreme Self to us. Krishna in the Bhagvad Geeta says: ” Amongst the Mantras, I am the Gayatri”
The Gayatri Mantra is the essence of the three Vedas. It is the Vedas simplified. The more one contemplates and meditates upon the Gayatri, the more complexities are revealed to one.
Story behind it
That once the Devas, the Shining Ones wanted to learn the secrets of the Universe. Since learning about the Scientific aspect ‘atoms’ etc. did not quite work out, they went to the Lord. The Lord gave them the Rig Veda, The Yajur Veda and the Sama Veda to study. After a couple of eons of study, the Devas lost their patience and wanted to quit. The Lord urged them not to give up and decided to teach the essence of the 3 Vedas in 3 fragments:
Essence of Rig Veda Tat Savitur Varenyam
Essence of Yajur Veda Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi
Essence of Sama Veda Dheeyo Yonah Prachodayaat
The more the Devas practiced and contemplated upon the Gayatri, the more complexities were revealed to them. So they lost patience again and went to the Lord to make it simpler still. So the Lord gave them the essence of the 3 segments, in the 3 words:
Bhur, Bhuvaha, Svaha
The Devas spent a a few cycles of Creation, probably a quadrillion human years pondering upon the ‘maha vyahritis’ ie ‘Utterances of the Lord’ but became impatient again and urged the Lord to make it simpler yet. So He Said “All right I’ll make it simpler”
And He taught them AUM
The great western thinker, Arthur Koestler, had once said that the Gayatri Mantra has the power of a thousand atomic bombs!
Gayatri is called VEDA MAATA. And the Gayatri mantram is given to a son at the age of 7 years by Child`s Father .It is called Brahmopadesam. Gayatri mnatra conains 24 Seed letters (Beejaaksharams) which are highly Powerful.
The Siva Panchakshari contains One seed Letter.
The Narayana Astaakshri contains one Seed letter.
Rama naaamam contains 2 seed letters.
Where as Gayatri Maha SEED LETTERS with Seven Aum Kaaras and the Divine Bhooh Bhuvah and Suvah etc which are Invocation to Gayatri Mata .
Each letter of the Mantra is Filled with Atomic Energy like power.
So we can not imagine its Power.It is that is why called Mantra Raajam.
