Gayatri Mantra

By Nadaka and Gopika

The Gayatri mantra is one of the oldest and most powerful of Sanskrit mantras.
It is believed that chanting it can bring happiness in life.
Nadaka and Gopika are chanting it in the Tibetan Pavilion of Auroville, on February 14, 2010.
The Gayatri Mantra consists of twenty-four syllables - three lines of eight syllables each.
The first line (Om Bhur Bhuvah Swah) is considered an invocation, and is not technically
a part of the original Gayatri Mantra as it appears in the Upanishads.

Om Bhur Bhuvah Swahah
tát savitúr várenyam
bhárgo devásya dhimahi
dhíyo yó nah pracodáyat.
