Gayatri Mantra

A few years ago I learned to chant the Gayatri Mantra with the intention of doing so for my students during Savasana. I did so just before I stopped teaching group classes. Since that time I’ve continued to chant it simply because I think it’s beautiful.

To learn the chant, I found a few versions I liked online, learned the lyrics and melody and just started practicing. I thought I’d write a post in case anyone else is interested in learning it. Below are the words, translation and my version of the chant.

 

 

“om bhur bhuva swaha

tat savitur varenyam

bhargo devasya dheemahi

dhiyo yonah prachodayat”

 

We meditate on the glory of the Creator
Who has created the Universe
Who is worthy of Worship
Who is the embodiment of Knowledge and Light
Who is the remover of Sin and Ignorance
May he open our hearts and enlighten our intellect.
