What Gayathri Mantra Can Do To Us | Personal Experience of Mr Vijaya Sarathi


Sai Ram everyone and welcome once again to Good Morning with Gayathri Mantra. We are at the Administrative Block of Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning. Lovely breeze here. Such a beautiful environment Swami has given for the head office of His educational Institutions. and Mr. Vijay Sarathi has been serving in this Institution for more than 30 years, living with Swami for three decades and sir you are someone who has been diligently practicing the chanting of the Gayathri Mantra. So from your own experience if you can share how you have seen the connect between Swami and the Gayathri Mantra. Since my childhood, when I was a small boy, in 7th standard, my father taught me how to do Gayathri Mantra. So I have been doing Gayathri Mantra for so many years. While taking bath, I normally chant and by the time I finish my things and it will be around 108 or so whatever it is. This I have been doing for several years thinking that I don’t get time to do sandyavandanam. But I was little skeptical and doubting whether it really reaches mother Gayathri, God. I was thinking like that, but once, it may be sometime in 1997 I think, so after that I came to darshan, I was sitting in the darshan, Bhagawan came near me, He looked at me and said “Snaanam Chestunnappudu Gayathri Mantramu Cheptunnavu Kaakha, Chaalu, Sandhyavandanam voddhu” and He looked at me but told the person next to me. So if you can translate that? Yes, what the Gayatri Mantra which you do while taking bath is enough, you need not do sandhyavandanam. Oh those were Swami’s words? Yes. You had taken this approach of chanting the Gayathri Mantra as you are cleaning yourself every morning. Yes. Since you don’t have time to elaborate morning ritual of sandhyavandanam and here Swami is telling to you that, if you are chanting this mantra during the morning routine that’s enough, even if you don’t do it during morning ritual hours, sandhyavandanam. Yes, I was happy in one side, but I was unhappy thinking that, He was looking at next person and telling. I was little upset and at the same time happy and I went to Administrative Office, where I am working. Then, In 1997, Vice Chancellor Dr. G. Venkatraman was there. He suddenly called me to his cabin; he said that I understand you are a Brahmin, take this sheet. I was really shocked to see that, it has got Gayathri Mantra. What the Vice Chancellor gave it to you? Yes what the Vice Chancellor gave it to me. On the same day Same day? Same day in the morning. Oh my God I was so happy thinking that Chancellor and Vice Chancellor both of them blessed me on the same day. Wow Clearing my doubts. Wow You have it? Right? Ya I have it. Just I want to share with you the thing which he gave me on that day, which is of Gayathri Mantra. Wow. That is what Vice Chancellor gave you after Chancellor confirmed it in the morning darshan? Wow Yes. This I want to share with you. So this would have really set in your mind with certainty. Yes, Come what may, every day will go with the Gayathri Mantra. Not even a single day I have left that not chanting. It became an automatic process. Automatic Whenever I get time I have couple of mantras also and we chant along with this. Wow. So after you started doing this now perhaps with greater zeal and greater greater interest, did you in any way experience the blessings of the mother, blessings of what this mantra can do to you. Yes. See Gayathri Mantra is a Mantra Rajam. Mantra Rajam means epitome of all mantras. Mantra Rajam, Rajam means, superior, Kingly. So that is why all other Gayathri Mantras, you know will have that 2 syllable’s “Dheemahi….. Prachodayat” and it continues. But Gayathri Mantram is Gayatri Mantram. All the mantras have derived from the Gayathri Mantram? Yes. So that’s why it is called Mantra Rajam. King. Like a king. Kingly. Like Rama namam is Mantra Rajam. Taraka namam. Know it is epitome of all the mantras. So I chant all these as a routine, with full devotion and faith in Bhagawan and thinking that Bhagawan is everything. In 2014, if I am correct, Bhagawan blesses me with so many idols and things in the Vibhuthi container in my house. One day He blessed with this, when it came, I could not understand what is written in that because I don’t know how to read Sanskrit. But later on, one of my friend said, it’s Gayatri Mantra. Oh Wow. Om and the Gayatri Mantra just sort of manifested in the Vibhuthi? Manifested in the Vibhuthi And Gayathri Mantra starts with the Om. Om is the Primeval sound of everything of creation and Gayathri is the Mother of all the mantras. Wow. Fantastic. So this I worship always. In so many ways Swamy had confirmed that this is the Mantra which is the Supreme of all. I mean, in the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna says that among all the mantras, I am Gayathri. Adi Shankara says, Gayan Traayathe Ithi Gayatri. That is, Gayathri Mantra protects all Pranakoti, it protects all the prana. That means it gives prana sakthi to mankind. That is what it gives life, enlivence everything. I mean our inner self as well as outer self and the outer self. Beautiful! Thank you, thank you so much sir. But I think, getting something directly from Bhagawan is really precious and you volunteering to share this with us is very beautiful. Thank you so much. Sai Ram Om Bhur Bhuva Svaha Tat Savitur Varenyam Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi Dhiyo Yonah Prachodayat Om Bhur Bhuva Svaha Tat Savitur Varenyam Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi Dhiyo Yonah Prachodayat Om Bhur Bhuva Svaha Tat Savitur Varenyam Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi Dhiyo Yonah Prachodayat

    I am asking for subtitles in English. Then I will translate into my language and make this spiritual knowledge available to other devotees. But I need subtitles. My request also applies to all other films about Gayatri. I love it. We are chanting Gayatri Our group chants the Gayatri mantra every Sunday at 10.30 am . About 15 people.

    Many thanks and prayers to RadioSai, for sharing such great messages – our only source of help in this world of confusion πŸ™‚

  4. Keep this effort up brother, your episodes are so inspiring and motivating for us to progress and seek grace of mother Gayatri.

  5. Sairam brother Bishu, this series is phenomenal. Please continue it. I have a doubt. There are many versions of Swami chanting the Gayathri mantra. The intonations are different in some of the versions.
    In this audio, swami chanting Dhiyo Yo Nah Prachodayat is different in the last line.
    My request is can you please also do an episode on the correct intonations for chanting?
