Gayatri is a profound prayer. It is an authentic prayer that elevates, exhilarates and enlightens. According to Hindu scriptures, a prayer in its real sense is not just chanting of a few verses. It is a comprehensive exercise that involves jnana (knowledge), dhyana (meditation) and anubhava (experience). Gayatri Mahamantra is a true prayer that not only reaches out but also reaches in.
Gayatri is chanted as a Mahamantra, worshipped as the Mother Goddess and expressed as a Meter. It is not a prayer for worldly and material benefits. Gayatri is a prayer for the highest enlightenment. It is a prayer that leads to a sublime experience, a prayer that opens up our mind and vision, body and intellect to a world beyond the worldly attachments. It is a prayer that leads to the Ultimate Truth and Supreme Bliss that every enlightened human being seeks.
Gayatri, like the Vedas, is meant for the entire mankind, irrespective of gender, caste, creed, religion or nationality. It is a profound prayer that can touch and transform every human being.
