Gayatri Mantra - The Incomparable Divine Force - The 24 letters of Gayatri Mantra
Brahma conceived the Gayatri Mantra consisting of 24 letters before he created the gross world.Each letter in the mantra has hidden in itself a great potential force.The mantra takes the form of the four Vedas.
Whatever sound comes out of the mouth is the outcome of the interaction of various organs such as the wind pipe,the toungue,the teeth,the lips etc.The different organs or parts of the mouth are interconnected with the various parts of the bodythrough tubulur organs known as nadi.In those areas of the body whereever the nadis are,the six chakras are related to the sushumna nadi,there are lots of ganglia or granthis and the effect of vibrations of different parts of the mouth,place of sound organs have a pressuring effect on these ganglia.The spiritualists know what power is contained in each of the ganglia.The various sounds produced through the organs of the mouth have their effect on these ganglia.They cause the ganglia to activate and discharge their stored power.The wordings of the mantras are arranged on the basis of of their sounds and intonations.The Gayatri Mantra contains 24 letters and all these 24 letters have a direct relation with the 24 ganglia in the human body.When the ganglia are activated they energize the power that yeilds the right kind of knowledge.The repetition of Gayatri Mantra or Japa produces notes which mingle with similiar sounds existing in the nature,prakriti.This is what one can expect from the Gayatri Sadhana.Those well versed in the science of sound know what potency sound waves contain and what effects they produce.Sound works in it's own sphere and even controls Nature.Thus Nature functions through the power of the word sound.Gayatri Mantra is composed of selected sounds and due to their very order in the mantra a very powerful current or wave is produced and made to flow.While uttering the mantra whichever organs of the mouth come in to play,activate their corresponding ganglia also.When the ganglia are activated thus,a musical,which is also spiritual sound resembling the Vedic Mantra spreads in the air,returning to it's base again carrying along with it a powerful force of similiar sounds already spread in nature to help acheive the desired end.The musical effect of the vibrations or the current occasioned by the utterance of the mantra on the already existing current created by the five elements and the subtle soul force,atma shakthi,ether,air,fire,water and earth,and also by the intensity of piety,sincerity and earnestness of the prayer offered,make the Gayatri Mantra forces powerful as a Divine Blessings.
The 24 powers of Gayatri awaken in the sadhak certain qualities and along with this awakening he starts getting success and prosperity,meaning siddhi.Many feel that these benefits are showered by some God or Goddess.They do not realise the developement of the subtle force in themselves.If they are able to know the subtle force working in them,they will realise that such benefits do not accrue of their own accord and that all of them are the results of the interplay of spiritual forces in them.Gayatri sadhana or upasana is not blind faith,but a scientific process whose developement and progress are sure to yeild to desired fruits.One can establish ones contact through ones spiritual powers with the subtle all pervading Gayatri.One can use ones own spiritual power for attainment of all or a particular benefit - material,psychological or spiritual.This is Sadhana.
Gayatri is the desire yeilding cow kamadhenu.One who recites Gayatri and engages one self in her sadhana is blessed by Mother Gayatri.He / She remains outside the purview of ignorance,incapacity and want of things and gets the desired things.
