Gayatri Mantra: A Request for Inspiration
The Gayatri Mantra is a prayer to Brahman for the inspiration of our thoughts and involves meditation on the solar deity Savita, who represents the divine light of Brahman for all beings living in the solar system. With the divine light inspiring our thoughts, we not only become energetic but also turn righteous. Because our thoughts make our samskaras, this continual guidance from God allows us to generate only sattvic karma. As our mind gets disinfected from many of our attachments and habits of the past, our nature turns spiritual.
By continuing our meditation,** we eventually derive the knowledge of our Self, which is the ideal objective of the Gayatri Mantra. We get to realize our oneness with Brahman and see the whole universe within our Self.
**All potent mantras and meditation processes require an initiation and training from an experienced guru.
