DHIYOYO NAH PRACHODAYAT — We invoke that Supreme Power to guide our intellect so that we always make the right choices in our life.
May we always be guided by Divine Wisdom so that we can clearly discern between the Real and the unreal, the True and the False, the helpful and harmful. We affirm our connection to our Original State of Being, and we reaffirm our True Nature again and again by making up our mind to live in the Highest State of Consciousness while living in this human body. OM
This Gayatri Mantra (pronounced: guy-a-tree) is the universal prayer and positive affirmation, which contains the secret (hidden) power to transform ordinary consciousness into the highest state of consciousness. To unlock this power it is necessary to insert the key of deliberation into the mind. In fact, one of the connotations of the word MANTRA is ‘deliberation’. In other words, we must deliberate on the meaning and deliberately practice the lessons derived from this deliberation.
Repeat the Gayatri Mantra over, again and again, concentrating on the meanings and losing your self (ego) in the vibrations. This Mantra will bring you close to your Real Self.
