Gayatri used in Hindu daily worship

Gayatri (Sanskrit) Meditative chant/mantra used in the daily worship of Hindus.

Bhur bhuvah svah / tat savitur varenyam / bhargo devasya dhimahi / dhiyo yo nah pracodayat / santih santih santih

Body of all. Mind of all. Spirit of all / May we meditate on the Supreme / On the all-pervading radiance of the Primal Light / May He inspire the innnermost thoughts of our hearts / Peace, Peace, Peace.

  1. Thank you for this bit of information about the Gayatri. There are so many versions on youtube it’s hard to know what it is exactly, except that it’s ancient.

    These are the words someone gave to me recently:

    The Gayatri World Prayer
    (Sacred Sun Mantra)

    Oh Thou Who givest sustenance to the universe,
    From Whom all things proceed
    To Whom all things return,
    Unveil to us the face of the true Spiritual Sun
    Hidden by a disc of golden Light
    That we may know the Truth
    And do our whole duty
    As we journey to Thy sacred feet.

    ~~~~~ Have you heard this version?
    Thanks Musa ~
