Gayatri Mantra

Image result for Gayatri MantraGayatri Mantra is most universal, non- personal, a holy prayer which can be used bay any person belonging to any country, irrespective of race, religion or sex. Persons who have practised have a lot of faith in it. Such practitioners have devoted themselves to Gayatri for reverend reached the stage of salvation. Our revered saints have done research on Gayatri which was very much compiled in Purans, sanhitas and other Hindu religious classics.
During Gayatri sadhana Jyestha, Asadh, Badhrapad, Pusha and Malmasa; Tuesday, Saturday; Vayatipat, and vaidarti yoga; ashtami, navmi, chartuthi, trodashi, chaturdashi, Amavasya, pardosh, night, yam, agni, Rudra, sarp, inder, vasu, shravan, birth constellation and Aries, Cancer, Taurus, Aquarius, and Capricorn all are prohibited. The Gayatri worship should be started during Poornima in the Hora of Moon.

Gayatri mantra for planets can be recited for shanty purpose if one is already intiated in moola gayatri mantra (given at the time of Upanayana). This involves 3 lines in specific pronunciation pattern and can be learnt personally under the able guidance of a guru. Priests who do not have much concentration prefer this mantra to conduct shanty in the similar manner as in beeja mantra japa.

Moola Gayatri mantra is:

Dhyana Om yaddevaye surpujatim   partaram samarthaye taratmikam punnagambujpushpnagvakaluu kashai shukairchirtam!
Nityam dhyan samastdiptikarnam kalagniruddipnam tatsanharkaram namami statam pataisanstham mukham!!

After dhyana do prayer with folded hands as given below:

Om Aho devi mahadevi sandhye vidye saraswati|
Ajre amre chaiv brahamyonirnamoastu te ||
Om Devi Gayatri tavam brahmashapadivimukta bhav,
Vashisthadi shapa divimukta bhav, Vishvamitrashavpaidimukta bhav||

Now do the viniyoga (application) of Gayatri mantra after doing shapvinochan:

Om karasya brahma rishirgayatri chanda parmatma devata, om Bhurbhuva svariti mahavyahritinam parmesthi prajapatir rishir gyatriushninustubhschandashi agni vayusurya devta Om tatsavituritasya vishvamitrra rishi Gayatri chanda savita devta jape viniyoga||

Gayatri mantra for recital
Om bhurbhuswa tatsaviturvarenyam bhargo devasya dheemahi |
Dhiyo yohanah prachodayat||

In the sound file this mantra is repeated thrice word –by-word with sufficient pauses for your practice. Listen to Gayatri mantra and practice:

Whatever mantra or stotra you select kindly see it is easy for you to recite. Engaging a priest to do shanti will not absolve you from doing your own bit as remedial measure.

Benefits of Gayatri worship

Every sect and religion has elaborated the benefits of divine worship. Even in Vedas there are different types of worships but Gayatri worship has its own status. It is considered Vedic worship. When a devotee is worshipping Gayatri, he is worshipping the Supreme Soul, Parbrahm.

One who worships Gayatri he is blessed with self confidence which enables him to take right decision in his life. Right decisions are the pillars of life which leads a person to salvation. One who worships Gayatri he is never disturbed by evil souls, demons and ill effect of nine planets. It enriches person will knowledge, enthusiasm and all his diseases are vanished. The devotee of Gayatri never feels miserable in his life. It is said that one who worships Gayatri never faces unnatural death. Problems such as cardiac arrest, high/low blood pressure or any other disease which leads to unnatural death are checked with the worship of Gayatri.

In the section astrology we have given Gayatri mantras from different planets and deities. These mantras do not have mention in the classics but given by different gurus based on their experiences and are based on the Gayatri Mantra.
