    "God is dear to me like my own breath, He is the Dispeller of my pains, and Giver of happiness." This portion does not seem to be supported by the above Gayatri Mantra.

    Diyaha - buddhi
    Yaha - which
    naha - mine
    prachodayaath - invigorates
    thath - that
    savithuhu - my maker
    varenyam - supreme
    bargaha - brahman
    devasya - with light
    deenahi - i propitiate

    Om - Pranava (comprosing of Aapthi - desire, Uthkarsham - effort taken to fulfill the desire, Mukthi - fulfillment of desire)
    Bhoohu - generator,
    Bhuvaha - organiser
    suvaha - destroyer.

    That supreme Brahman which has created me may improve my intelligence, I propitiate the same

    Gayatri Mantra - Meaning and Translation

    Very interesting thread. Some years ago I had come across an article by Swami Chinmayananda mentioning that he got a copy of the commentary to Gayathri Manthra by Sri Adi Sankaracharya given to him at Devaprayag by a Pundit, which he had published in the article. Unfortunately I could not retrieve the same now. I request "Sri Sangom" or any of other members who know about the same to post the commentry in our Forum.

    Regards,
    Brahmanyan,

    Dear Shri Brahmanyan,

    Gayatree-Sankara Bhashyamu, a Telugu book is available at

    http://ia700208.us.archive.org/15/it...023779mbp.djvu

    for free download. If some member knowing Telugu translates it into English and posts here, it will benefit many. I don't know Telugu.

    One need to have the knowledge of significance of Gayathri, because we are taught at
    the time of Upanayanam itself by the Sastrigals and the elders. Gayathri is known
    mother of all Vedas or we can call it as Vedamatha also. If one is totally devoted,
    without any deviation while chanting Gayathri Mantra, one can take it as granted
    as achievement or attainment of great success in life and in other words, it takes
    one to the path of self-advancement inspiring a righteous wisdom.
