Gayatri Mantra

Swami Rama taught and now  Swami Veda Bharati teachs the Gaitri Mantra.

The translation rendered by Swami Vivekananda on Wikipedia is,

“We meditate on the glory of that Being who has produced this universe; may He enlightens our minds.”

The basic meditation practices that I learned from Swami Vivekananda from the Chicago Vedanta Center, Swami Rama, and Swami Veda Bharati (then know as Dr. Arya) are still part of my daily practice.

Dr. Arya once gave a talk about celebrating transitions. This talk basically changed my life. His major point is that we need to celebrate all the transitions in our lives, not just the major ones like graduation, bar mitzvah, confirmation, marriage, and so forth. More later!

I do not chant the Gaitri Mantra anymore. What do you think of this chant?
