The Gayatri Mantra is a Sanskrit verse that is a gift to all humanity and may be chanted/recited by anyone regardless of their religious affiliation. Eastern scholars have believed since time immemorial that this Mantra is a grantor of great mental peace, prosperity, and direction in life.

The Mantra contains three elements. The first is a prayer to the Higher Power Governing the Universe (denoted by the name “Om”). Second, it recounts the most comforting attributes of our Maker. Third, an ‘Upasana’ – a loving expression of desire for proximity and/or attachment to our Maker.

In its essence, the mantra is an expression of surrender and a prayer for wisdom.

The mantra may be roughly translated from Sanskrit as follows:

“O Protector, Giver of life, Remover of sorrows, and Grantor of happiness,
We surrender ourselves to your inspirational power;
We focus our mind on your purifying power,
Please guide our minds to take right decisions.”
