Shiva Gayatri and its meaning

In hinduism, Vedic on December 15, 2008 at 6:55 am

Shiva Gayatri is one of the most powerful Gayatri Mantras. It is dedicated to Shiva (Siva, Rudra).
Shiva is the destroyer and the God of sexuality. As a destroyer, Shiva destroys all evils in the body and mind, thus purifying the aspirant. He also makes things clear in the mind which is a natural consequence of destruction of evil in body and mind. Since He is also the god of fertility and sexuality, chanting Shiva gayatri gives the aspirant to control baser instincts like desire for sex, etc.Worship of Shiva dates back to pre-Vedic and Vedic period. He is one of the most powerful forces controlling creation.

Shiva Gayatri:

Om Pancahvaktraye Vidmahe
Mahadevaye Dhimahi
Tanno Rudra Prachodayat

Translation:

We meditate on Mahadeva, may Rudra deirect our minds.

Panchavaktra (or Panchamukha) is combination of all five forms of Shiva. This form of Shiva is depicted as five-headed God. More about Pachavaktra Shiva in the next post.

Gayatri Mantra and its meaning

In hinduism on November 20, 2008 at 5:52 pm

Gayatri Mantra is one of the oldest and the holiest mantras among Hindus. Traditionally the source for Gayatri Mantra is the vedas. Since the actual verse in the Vedas was in the form of a Vedic chant, it was rephrased many times variously and is still used by Hindus all over the world. It is considered the most powerful mantra by many Hindus. The mantra is also called the ‘Mother of the Vedas’.

Gayatri, also called Savitri,  is five-faced Goddess who presides over the five human senses and hence protects the five life forces of any aspirant who chants her mantra with devotion and focus. Lord Krishna, in Bhagvad Gita, says to Arujuna ‘Among all mantras, I am the Gayatri’.

Here is the mantra and a list of its common interpretations:

Aum bhur bhuwah swaha tat savitur varenyam
bhargo devasya dheemahi dhiyo yo naha prachodayat

Translation/Interpretation:
May the Almighty God illuminate our intellect to lead us along the righteous path

Other interpretations:

Interpretation of the Mantra by Sir William Jones

“Let us adore the supremacy of that Divine Sun, the Godhead, who illuminates all, who recreates all, from whom all proceed, to whom all must return, whom we invoke to direct our understanding aright in our progress towards his holy seat.”

Interpretation of the Mantra by the Arya Samaj

“O God, Thou art the giver of life, the remover of pain and sorrow, the bestower of happiness; O Creator of the Universe, may we receive Thy supreme sin-destroying light; may Thou guide our intellect in the right direction.”

Interpretation of Mantra in the Brahmo religion

As Savitr in the original Sanskrit may be interpreted in two ways, first as the sun, secondly as the “originator or creator”, Raja Ram Mohan Roy and Maharshi Debendranath Tagore used that word in the second sense. Interpreted in their way the whole formula may be thus rendered :

“We meditate on the worshipable power and glory of Him who has created the earth, the nether world and the heavens (i.e. the universe), and who directs our understanding.”

Gayatri Mantra removes all obstacles in your path and bestows you with wisdom and spiritual growth.
