Gayatri Mantra

Here is a recording of me doing deep voice chanting after I found out by accident that I could do it. The river in the video is Afon Glaslyn, the river of the blue lake. This lake is in a cwm part the way up Yr Wyddfa or Snowdon. It is one of my favourite places on the entire planet.

The recording was made at a cottage Can yr Afon {song of the river} in Beddgelert, North Wales. The river runs through the grounds of the cottage. The family of my maternal grandfather worked the copper mine at Sygun there a long time ago, some of the women washed clothes in the river.

Can yr Afon played a part in the purchase of Traou an Dour. Instead of Afon Glaslyn we have Le Jaudy

ॐ भूर्भुवः स्वः तत्सवितुर्वरेण्यं भर्गो देवस्य धीमहि धियो यो नः प्रचोदयात् ॥

oṃ bhūr bhuvaḥ svaḥ

tat savitur vareṇyaṃ

bhargo devasya dhīmahi

dhiyo yo naḥ pracodayāt

– Rigveda 3.62.10

“Let us meditate on that excellent glory of the divine vivifying Sun, May he enlighten our understandings.”

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

“Aum. Let us contemplate the wondrous spirit of the Divinve Creator (Savitri) of the earthly, atmospheric, and celestial spheres. May He direct our minds (that is, ‘towards’ the attainment of dharmma, artha, kama, and moksha), Om.”

“Om, the Brahm, the Universal Divine Energy, vital spiritual energy (Pran), the essence of our life existence, Positivity, destroyer of sufferings, the happiness, that is bright, luminous like the Sun, best, destroyer of evil thoughts, the divinity who grants happiness may imbibe its Divinity and Brilliance within us which may purify us and guide our righteous wisdom on the right path.”

“Muttering the sacred syllable ‘Aum’ rise above the three regions, And turn thy attention to the All-Absorbing Sun within. Accepting its influence be thou absorbed in the Sun, And it shall in its own likeness make thee All-Luminous.”
