The mantra is an expression of gratitude, to the Sun God, Surya. It is a prayer of praise that awakens and liberates. The Vedas say, “To chant the Gayathri Mantra purifies the chanter. To listen to the Gayathri Mantra purifies the listener”. According to the Vedas, there are seven spheres of existence, each more spiritually advanced than the previous one. It is said that through spiritual awareness and development, we can move through these spheres and ultimately merge with the Supreme Being. By chanting this mantra, Divine spiritual light and power is infused in each of our seven chakras and connects them to these seven great spiritual spheres of existence. Before the creation of Vedas, Brahma- the creator, has created Gayatri Mantra consisting of twenty-four letters. Every letter of this Mantra has a conscious energy field from which have originated the four Vedas. Just like a tree that grows from a tiny seed, the twenty-four letters of Gayatri Mantra bloomed and manifested themselves in the stupendous, all-encompassing Vedic literature. The utterance of different words has its impact on different glands and by such impact the energy of these glands gets stimulated. Swami Vivekananda translated the Gayatri Mantra thus: We meditate upon the glory of that Being who has produced this Universe. May he enlighten our minds.
