Gayatri Mantra - Deva Premal

I have heard her sing this many times, but I liked this explaination on why she sings it with such passion.

Om Bhoor Bhuwah Swaha,
Tat Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasaya Dheemahi
Dhiyo Yo Naha Prachodayat

There are many people who recite the Gayatri mantra without even knowing its literal meaning. People are not really aware of what it means or what it wants to convey. It is owing to this reason that, the significance and the power of Gayatri mantra is lost. In this article, we will do the translation of Gayathri mantra and present you with the word by word meaning of Gayatri mantra. This is turn will make your chanting of Gayatri mantra more effective, by raising your intellectual level.
