GAYATRI MANTRA - Its Scientific Meaning:

GAYATRI MANTRA Its Scientific Meaning:

Gayatri mantra has been bestowed the greatest importance in Vedic dharma. This mantra has also been termed as Savitri and Ved-Mata, the mother of the Vedas.

The Gayatri mantra is composed of a meter consisting of 24 syllables - generally arranged in a triplet of eight syllables each. Therefore, this particular meter (tripadhi) is also known as the Gayatri Meter or "Gayatri Chhanda."


bhur bhuvah swah

Tat savitur varenyam
Bhargo devasya dheemahi
Dhiyo yo nah prachodayat
[The Rig Veda (10:16:3)]

The literal meaning of the mantra is:

O God! You are Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Almighty, You are all Light. You are all Knowledge and Bliss. You are Destroyer of fear, You are Creator of this Universe, You are the Greatest of all. We bow and meditate upon Your light. You guide our intellect in the right direction.

Scientific Importance:

The mantra, however, has a great scientific importance too, which somehow got lost in the literary tradition. The modern astrophysics and astronomy tell us that our Galaxy called Milky Way or Akash-Ganga contains approximately 100,000 million of stars. Each star is like our sun having its own planet system. We know that the moon moves round the earth and the earth moves round the sun along with the moon. All planets round the sun. Each of the above bodies revolves round at its own axis as well. Our sun along with its family takes one round of the galactic center in 22.5 crore years. All galaxies including ours are moving away at a terrific velocity of 20,000 mile s per second.

The alternative scientific meaning of the mantra step by step:


Bhur the Earth, Bhuvah the Planets (solar family), Swah the Galaxy. We observe that when an ordinary fan with a speed of 900 RPM (rotations per minute) moves, it makes noise. Then, one can imagine, what great noise would be created when the galaxies move with a speed of 20,000 miles per second. This is what this portion of the mantra explains that the sound produced due to the fast-moving earth, planets and galaxies is Om.

The sound was heard during meditation by Rishi Vishvamitra, who mentioned it to other colleagues. All of them, then unanimously decided to call this sound OM the name of God, because this sound is available in all the three periods of time, hence it is set (permanent). Therefore, it was the first ever revolutionary idea to identify formless God with a specific title (form) called upadhi. Until that time, everybody recognized God as formless and nobody was prepared to accept this new idea.

In the Gita also, it is said, "Omiti ekaksharam Brahma", meaning that the name of the Supreme is OM, which contains only one syllable (8/12). This sound Om heard during Samadhi was called by all the seers nada-brahma a very great noise), but not a noise that is normally heard beyond a specific amplitude and limits of decibels suited to human hearing. Hence the rishis called this sound Udgith musical sound of the above, i.e., heaven. They also noticed that the infinite mass of galaxies moving with a velocity of 20,000 miles/second was generating a kinetic energy = 1/2 MV2 and this was balancing the total energy consumption of the cosmos. Hence they named it Pranavah, which means the body (vapu) or store house of energy.


Tat that (God), Savitur the Sun (star), Varenyam worthy of bowing or respect. Once the form of a person along with the name is known to us, we may locate the specific person. Hence the two titles (upadhi) provide the solid ground to identify the formless God, Vishvamitra suggested. He told us that we could know (realize) the unknowable formless God through the known factors, viz., sound Om and light of suns (stars). A mathematician can solve an equation x2+y2=4; if x=2; then you can be known and so on. An engineer can measure the width of a river even by standing at the riverbank just by drawing a triangle. So was the scientific method suggested by Vishvamitra in the mantra in the next portion as under:-


Bhargo the Light, Devasya of the Deity, Dheemahi we should Meditate. The rishi instructs us to meditate upon the available form (light of suns) to discover the formless Creator (God). Also he wants us to do japa of the word OM (this is understood in the Mantra). This is how the sage wants us to proceed, but there is a great problem to realize it, as the human mind is so shaky and restless that without the grace of the Supreme (Brahma) it cannot be controlled. Hence Vishvamitra suggests the way to pray Him as under:


Dhiyo (Intellect), Yo (Who), Nah (we all), prachodayat (guide to right Direction). O God! Deploy our intellect on the right path. Full scientific interpretation of the Mantra: The Earth (Bhur), the Planets (Bhuvah), and the Galaxies (Swah) are moving at a very great velocity, the sound produced is OM, (the name of formless God.) That God (Tat), who manifests Himself in the form of light of Suns (Savitur) is worthy of bowing/respect (Varenyam). We all, therefore, should, Meditate (Dheemahi) upon the Light (Bhargo) of that Deity (Devasya) and also do chanting of Om. May He (Yo) guide in right direction (Prachodayat) Uur(Nah) Intellect Dhiyo.

So we notice that the important points hinted in the mantra is:-

The total kinetic energy generated by the movement of galaxies acts as an umbrella and balances the total energy consumption of the cosmos. Hence it was named as the Pranavah (body of energy). This is equal to 1/2 mv2 [Mass of galaxies x velocity.]

Summing up:

The "Vyahrities" [Vyahriti is that which gives knowledge of entire cosmos or "ahriti"]: Bhuh, Bhuvah & Svah
The above three words of the Gayatri, which literally means "Past," "Present," and "Future," are called Vyahrities. Vyahriti is that which gives knowledge of entire cosmos or "ahriti". The scripture says: "Visheshenh Aahritih sarva viraat, praahlaanam prakashokaranh vyahritih". Thus, by uttering these three words, the chanter contemplates the Glory of God that illumines the three worlds or the regions of experience.

When you pronounce AUM:
A - Emerges from the throat, originating in the region of the navel
U - Rolls over the tongue
M - Ends on the lips

A - waking, U - dreaming, M - sleeping
It is the sum and substance of all the words that can emanate from the human throat. It is the primordial fundamental sound symbolic of the Universal Absolute.

GAYATRI MANTRA - Its Scientific Meaning:

A scientific interpretation for Gayathri mantra

Scientific Meaning of Gaayatree Mantra
This is good and informative. One basic thing - require clarity is that "OM" is beginning and means everything started from it.. "Pranava". Here it is mentioned as sound from the planets/earth.. OM started before this - is it not?


The earth (bhur), the planets (bhuvah), and the galaxies (swah) are moving at a very great velocity, the sound produced is Om, (the name of formless God.)

1) The total kinetic energy generated by the movement galaxies acts as an umbrella and balances the total energy consumption of the cosmos. Hence it was named as the Pranavah (body of energy). This is equal to 1/2 mv2 (Mass of galaxies x velocity)

2) Realizing the great importance of the syllable OM, the other later date religions adopted this word with a slight change in accent, viz., amen and Ameen.

Gayatri Mantra


காயத்ரி மந்திரம் மருத்துவரீதில் சிறந்த&#

காயத்ரி மந்திரம் மருத்துவரீதில் சிறந்தது தான்

விஞ்ஞான ரீதியில் பார்த்தாலும் இது மிகப் பெரும் உடற்பயிற்சி தான்.
ஓம்பூர்புவ: ஸுவ:
தியோயோன: ப்ரசோதயாத்

என்று ஆரம்பிக்கும் இம் மந்திரத்தில் ஏதோ சக்தி இருக்கிறது என்பதை கட்டாயம் ஏற்றுக் கொண்டே ஆக வேண்டும். இதை முறையாக ஒரு முறை செய்து பார்த்தால் வாழ்வில் வரும் மாற்றங்களை வைத்து நீங்கள் உணரலாம்.
சமைப்பதென்றால் கூட ஒரு முறையிருக்கிறதல்லவா. அப்படித்தான் இதுவும். இதற் கென்றொரு முறையிருக்கிறது.

இம் மந்திரத்தை விசுவாமித்திர முனிவர் இயற்றியதாகக் கூறப்படும் (ரிக் வேதத்தின் ) மூன்றாவது மண்டலத்தில் (3.62.10 உள்ள ஒரு அருட்பாடல் காயத்திரி மந்திரம் ஆகும். என்று அழைக்கிறார்கள்.

இனி ஓதும் முறையைப் பார்ப்போமா? முதலில் உடல் சுத்தமாக இருக்க வேண்டும். ஒரு தூய இடமொன்றில் நின்றபடியோ அல்லது சப்பாணியிட்டோ அமர்ந்து ஓத வேண்டும்.

தொடங்கும் முன் ஓம்…….ஓம்………ஓம்…… என பிரணவ மந்திரத்தை 3 தரம் சொல்லித் தொடங்க வேண்டும்.
பின் மந்திரத்தை கீழ் சொன்னது போன்று கூற வேண்டும்.

மூச்சை உள்ளெடுத்துக் கொண்டு
ஓம்பூர்புவ: ஸுவ என்ற வரியை சொல்ல வேண்டும்.

பின் மூச்சை தம் கட்டிக் கொண்டு
தத்ஸவிதுர்வரேண்யம் என்ற வரியை சொல்ல வேண்டும்.

பின் மூச்சை வெளிவிட்டபடி
பர்கோதேவஸ்யதீமஹி என்ற வரியை சொல்ல வேண்டும்

இறுதியாக சுவாசத்தை நிறுத்தி
தியோயோன: ப்ரசோதயாத் என்ற வரியை சொல்ல வேண்டும்.

இப்படி 108 தரம் சொல்ல வேண்டும். முடிக்கையிலும் பிரணவ மந்திரம் சொல்லித்தான் முடிக்கணும்.
நான் இம் மந்திரத்தால் பலதை அடைந்திருக்கிறேன். குறிப்பாக சொன்னால் பல தடவை உயிர் தப்பியிருக்கிறேன்.

இதன் விஞ்ஞான காரணம் பார்த்தால் முக்கியம் மூச்சு பயிற்சி தான் இங்கு நான் தென்கச்சி கோ. சுவாமிநாதன் ஐயா சொன்னதை சொல்கிறேன். “நாம் எவ்வளவுக்கெவ்வளவு குறைவாக சுவாசிக்கிறோமோ அவ்வளவுக்கவ்வளவு அதிக காலம் அதிகமாக உயிர் வாழலாம். உதாரணமாக ஆமைகள் நிமிடத்திற்கு 4 தரம் சுவாசிப்பதால் தான் 500 ஆண்டுகள் வாழ்கிறது” என்கிறார். இதையும் விஞ்ஞானம் தான் சொல்லியிருக்கிறது.
