Peaceful Yoga by Sarah


Gayatri Mantra:


omṃ bhūr bhuvaḥ svaḥ
tat savitur vareṇyaṃ

bhargo devasya dhīmahi
dhiyo yo naḥ pracodayāt


This mantra has many, many translations, but I like this one...

Everything on the earth and in the sky and in between
Is arising from one effulgent source.
If my thoughts, words, and deeds
Reflected a complete understanding of this unity,
I would BE the PEACE I am seeking in this moment


 OR...

A literal translation of the Gayatri verse proper can be given as:

"May we attain that excellent glory of Savitar the god:
So may he stimulate our prayers."

--The Hymns of the Rigveda (1896),
