Thread: Bhakti yoga, gnyan yoga and karma yoga through Gayatri mantra

  1. Bhakti yoga, gnyan yoga and karma yoga through Gayatri mantra

    Atmiya all,

    I am a Gayatri upasak and a proud desciple of Vedmurty, taponistha Pt.Shriram Sharma Acharyaji, the founder of All world Gayatri Pariwar. According to his literature, one of the interpretation of Gayatri as Tripada is as follows;

    The gayatri mantra has three charans in it;

    1. Om Bhur bhuvah swah - Bhakti yoga
    Om - Pranav, the name of God
    Bhu, bhuvah and swah - Akash, patal and pruthvi
    This part of Gayatri mantra makes you belive that the God is in all three places

    2. tat savitu varenyam bhargo devasya dheemahi - Gnyan yoga

    tat - that - the God
    savitu - illuminous like sun
    varenyam - the best
    bhargo - who destrys our sins
    devasya - devine
    dheemahi - we have

    This part of Gayatri mantra gives you the highest knowledge that, we are having the qualities of God.

    3. Dhiyo yonah prachodayat - Karma yoga

    Dhiyo - intellect
    yonah - righteous path
    prachodayat - takes forcefully

    Take our intellect to a righteous path forcefully

    Once your intellect becomes righteous, you do do everything as your duty without expecting the fruit of actions.

    Gayatri is the Yug Shakti today. Righteous intellect is the requirement of this age.

    Namaste,

    According to several orthodox Upanishads, complete Gayatri has got four parts and not three.

    The last one is "paro rajase.asAvadom," as per Tripuratapini-upanishad; acc. to other sourses, it is "Apo jyotI raso .amR^itam brahma bhUr bhuvas suvarom."

    SMALL CORRECTION

    Not several upanishads but few upanishads.
    Not sure about classfication of Upanishad as Orthodox and non orthodox

    Gayathri indeed is said to lost some words and gained a few later on, hence additional phrases attached to gayathri could not be rejected, however, after the latest regaining of few words, Gayathri is said to have 3 parts.

    Hence both views are correct, "3 parts" view is currently in vogue

    108 Upanishads that are listed in Muktikopanishad are considered authorative by all Hindu sects and belong to Prasthana-trayi canon of Vedanta.

    There are other Upanishads which are non-Muktika and thus heterodox (like Kalika, Advaitabhavana or Chaitanya).
