Explore the power of Gayatri
We all want to increase our intelligence, concentration, memory and capacity for information. This the key to strength and success in information age. The Gayatri Mantra encourages creative thinking, not as mere human invention but as our portion of cosmic intelligence. The best way to do this is to harness the power of "inner Sun", which is to connect with cosmic intelligence through mantra and meditation. Each one of us possesses a portion of the "Light of Consciousness", a ray of universal consciousness, that endow us with understanding. This faculty is called "dhi" in Vedic thought and refers to the meditative aspect of the mind (dhyana manas) and "buddhi" referring to awakwened intelligence.
The best mantra for awakening the higher mind is the "Gayatri Mantra", which is a mantra to the "Solar light of Consciousness" (Savita), to awaken our meditative mind (dhi). It brings us the Divine Solar power of Consciousness, Love and Prana – the supreme light of truth. Gayatri Mantra exhorts us to attune ourselves to the cosmic mind and its laws of Dharma.
Vedas Worship Sun (Surya), as the source of light for the entire world. But for Vedic people, light is not a material force but a "power of life, love and intelligence". They regard Sun (Surya) as principle of light and consciousness on universal level (Savita), of which the Sun is our local representative.
Humanity must remember the "Divine Self" in the Sun, the "Prana" that is universal energy, and our role is the cosmos to bring the "Divine Light of Knowledge" into the darknes of the physical matter.
