GAYATRI MANTRA SOME ROOTS IN HINDUISM# FORWARDED BY DR. A. GUPTA

GAYATRI MANTRA

Scientific meaning of Gaytri Mantra
http://gayatrimantrameditation.googlepages.com/home
Gayatri mantra has been bestowed the greatest importance in Vedic dharma.
This mantra has also been termed as Savitri and Ved-Mata, the mother of the Vedas.
Ombhur bhuvah swah
Tat savitur varenyam
Bhargo devasya dheemahi
Dhiyo yo nah prachodayat
The literal meaning of the mantra is:
O God! You are Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Almighty.
You are all Light.
You are all Knowledge and Bliss.
You are Destroyer of fear, You are Creator of this Universe, You are the Greatest of all.
We bow and meditate upon Your light.
You guide our intellect in the right direction.
The mantra, however, has a great scientific import too, which somehow got lost in the literary tradition. The modern astrophysics and astronomy tell us that our Galaxy called Milky Way or Akash-Ganga contains approximately 100,000 million of stars. Each star is like our sun having its own planet system.
We know that the moon moves round the earth and the earth moves round the sun along with the moon. All planets round the sun. Each of the above bodies revolves round at its own axis as well. Our sun along with its family takes one round of the galactic center in 22.5 crore years. All galaxies including ours are moving away at a terrific velocity of 20,000 miles per second.
