Gayatri the Mantra

Or Expanding One’s Identity With the Cosmos

Carlos Cardoso Aveline

 

The Gayatri, a Vedic hymn, is one of the best-known mantras and prayers of all time. One of its translations says:

“O Thou who givest sustenance to the universe and to ourselves, Thou from whom all proceeds and unto whom all must at last return, unveil that face of the true spiritual Sun which is now hidden by a vase of golden light, that we may see the Truth and do our whole duty on our journey to Thy sacred seat.” [1]

The contents of the Gayatri relates to the teachings presented in the masterpiece of esoteric philosophy, “The Secret Doctrine”, by Helena P. Blavatsky.

The founder of the modern esoteric movement comments the verses and concepts present in the Gayatri on pages 244-254 of the volume “Letters of H.P. Blavatsky to A.P. Sinnett” (TUP). 

These two versions of the mantra deserve a meditative hearing:

1. The Longer Version of the Gayatri



2. The Short Version, with Deva Premal
