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



NOTE:

The Aquarian Theosophist, April 2016

 

Dear Reader,

This is the opening thought of the April edition:      

To him who looks for something of real importance, perseverance becomes natural.
  
On pp. 1-3 the reader finds John Garrigues’ article “The Habitude of Happiness”, whose subtitle is On the Way to Learn the Secret of the Sages”. After that we have a note on the “Lessons That Absurdities Teach”: the topic involves a theosophical way to look at paradoxes and oxymora.  A few lines on p. 4 are enough for the note “On Knocking at the Door” to discuss Matthew, 7:7.

These are some of the other topics in the April edition:

* Of Sound, Silence and Meaning;

* Material Temples Are Profane;

* The Sage and the Probationer;

* The Cure for Anti-Semitism;

* The Leverage to Change Reality;

* The States of the Consciousness;

* The Causes of a Collapse;

* Carpe Diem, Seize the Day;

* The Atmosphere of Inner Noiselessness;

* Thoughts Along the Road;

* The Universality of Kahlil Gibran; and

* The List of New Texts in Our Websites.

The 17 pp. edition concludes with the “One Sentence From Shakespeare”: the English author died 400 years ago on 23 April 1616.  

Best regards,

The Editors
