Let us contemplate the radiant Source of all Light
May our minds merge with It,
Thereby awakening our perception and Understanding on all three planes- physical mental vital

BENEFITS : Chanting the Gayatri calms the mind and emotions, thereby preparing us for meditation. It helps to awaken the buddhi ( inner wisdom) , which in turn prepares us for the arising of Awareness. This awakens subtle perception and the capacity to SEE behind ‘the scenes’ into greater Reality . It initiates us in to the process of realising our spiritual Source.
Taken from my teachers book, Mantra Yoga and Ashram Chants by Swami Nishchalananda

Happy chanting!!
