Gayatri Mantra is a very powerful ”song” for people that chant and for those that listen. The general meaning of this mantra is:
We meditate to the Supreme Lord, to the creator.
With its power, illuminate us and lead us.
This mantra has many benefit for those who are used to chant. The importance is to learn the words properly and trying to repeat them well. This Mantra we can find to be listened in Restaurants in India in the morning because one of its benefits is about giving prosperity by bowing to the Supreme and thank him for what we have had so far.
The different syllables that are in this mantra make the vibration in each different part of our body and by doing this, we can feel the benefit if we used to chant daily.
Some more benefits are:
- Improving your concentration;
- bowing the Self to something bigger than you, called it Supreme, God or Vital Energy;
- Improving the rhythm pattern of breath;
- keeping our heart healthy;
I shared a link of the Gayatri Mantra sang by a woman and it can help you to learn the mantra, I also used to listen to it when I start working but remember: don’t eat while you’re listening, don’t drink and focus on the mantra, chant while listening and don’t talk with other people. If it’s impossible for you to do this while working, better to don’t listen and just find the time to listen this song or chant by JUST focusing in the Mantra. Remember to repeat a Mantra 108 times (Why 108 Times?)!
