Revealing The Secret Behind Gayatri Mantra

INDIA, August 31, 2015 (by Hari RajivKumar, Daily O): From the limited information available about our past, we know that Hinduism is the oldest religion (or "way of life", as some people prefer to call it) and in this tradition, the Rigveda Samhita is the oldest work. Perhaps the most famous verse from the Rigveda is the savit? g?yatr? mantra. The Gayatri mantra is a 6,000-year-old verse . With this line, we bring our awareness to the three spheres of existence, thus connecting with something bigger than our tiny selves. The Gayatri mantra is a prayer to the Supreme, in the form of the sun, which stimulates our mind and empowers us. Just like the sun wakes us up every morning, we pray that the Supreme light wakes up our intellect. It is indeed a prayer for internal strength.

Experience has taught me that silence is part of the spiritual discipline of a votary of truth. Proneness to exaggerate, to suppress or modify the truth, wittingly or unwittingly, is a natural weakness of man and silence is necessary in order to surmount it.
-- Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948), Indian spiritual leader
