The Gāyatrī Mantra is based on Vedic Sanskrit verse from a hymn of the Rigveda (3.62.10), attributed to rishi Viśvāmitra. Its recitation is traditionally preceded by oṃ and the formula bhūr bhuvaḥ svaḥ, known as the mahāvyāhṛti ("great utterance").
Literal translation goes as follows:
Aum = Brahma ;It is also called Pranav because its sound emanates from the Prana (vital vibration), which feels the Universe. The scripture says "Aum Iti Ek Akshara Brahman" (Aum that one syllable is Brahman).
bhoor = embodiment of vital spiritual energy(pran) ;
bhuwah = destroyer of sufferings ;
swaha = embodiment of happiness ;
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.
tat = that ;Tat simply means "that" because it defies description through speech or language, the "Ultimate Reality."
savitur = "Divine Sun" (the ultimate light of wisdom) not to be confused with the ordinary sun.
varenyam = best choicest ;adore
bhargo = destroyer of sins ; Illumination of inner senses
devasya = divine grace;
these first nine words describe the glory of God
dheemahi = may imbibe ; pertains to meditation
dhiyo = intellect ;
yo = who ;
naha = our ;
prachodayat =requesting / urging / praying
The last five words constitute the prayer for final liberation through the awakening of our true intelligence.
The word "Gayatri" itself explains the reason for the existence of this mantra. It has its origin in the Sanskrit phrase Gayantam Triyate iti, and refers to that mantra which rescues the chanter from all adverse situations that may lead to mortality. Here Mortality should be considered as that of the soul.
