Gayatri Mantra

The Gayatri Mantra is said to be the oldest and most powerful of mantras, being thousands of years old. It purifies the person chanting it as well as the listener as it creates a tangible sense of well being in whoever comes across it. Translated, it means "May all beings on earth reach enlightenment," but as with all mantras, the meaning of the Sanskrit words isn't as important as the effect the vibrations of the words have on the body and energy centers. 
(Deva Premal)

Yesterday I went to my mantra group after missing it twice because of work.
We sang this mantra in 4 different versions. 

Have a nice weekend 


  1. Om Namah Shivaya, marianne.....

    some of my most content memories come from chanting in a local ashram. i learned to meditate there and i learned about the richness of the world within me. i am glad to know you chant too.

    no sense to letting our minds drive the bus when we just want peace :^)

    love always

  2. Hahaha I like that last sentence! I should never let my mind drive the bus unless I want a roller coaster ride........

  3. ahh, next to sounds of nature, this is best. thank you for sharing dear marianne. (i'm keeping this open in another window so i can hear it for a while).

  4. Will come back to listen...thanks for sharing. enjoy the group.

  5. I kept it open in another window too. This is just beautiful! I imagine you must feel so centered after a session of chanting.
