Deities & Mantras
Hindu Vedic astrology has several mantras dedicated for several Hindu gods and deities. Hindu religion is probably the only religion in the world that has so many gods and deities who are revered and worshipped by people across the globe. Some of the popular and towering gods and deities of Hindu religion are Lord Shiva, Vishu, Ram, Krishna, among others. And there are special mantras that should be chanted to appease and worship the particular god or goddess.
These days, we can find many mantras available in various kinds of remedial books and magazines. The authenticity and effectiveness of such books and mantras are however doubtful. Most of what we are producing below is from the preaching and teaching of Kailash Guru Jee—who is a highly enlightened soul.
Gayatri Mantra is one of the most popular mantras in Hinduism. It has been recited and chanted many times and during many occasions. According to the Hindu religious scripture, Gayatri is the mother of all Vedas. It is even believed that the Trinities—three supreme gods: Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva—used to worship her as their mother.
Gayatri Mantra is the prescribed daily mantra for all Hindu people and is regarded as the remover of all sins and which bestows all desired things in life. It is also part of the Sandhya Vandana. The ancient sage Vishwamitra is given the credit for bringing mother Gayatri into earth. Below is the most commonly recited verse from Gayatri Mantra.
Om Bhuh Bhuvah Svah Tat Saviturvarenyam
Bhargodevasya Dhimahi Dhiyoyonah Prachodayat
The meaning of the Gayatri mantra is as follows:
We contemplate the glory of light illuminating the three worlds: physical, mental, and spiritual. I am that vivifying power, love, radiant illumination, and divine grace of universal intelligence. We pray for the divine light to illumine our minds.
Om: The primeval sound
Bhur: the physical world
Bhuvah: the mental world
Suvah: the celestial, spiritual world
Tat: That; God; transcendental Paramatma
