Significance Of Gayatri:-
Gayatri Mata or Goddess Gayatri is the representation of the divine essence of Mahalakshmi, Mahasaraswati and Mahakali. The word Gayatri is a combination of ‘Gaya’ which translates to mean the hymn of wisdom and ‘Tri’ represents the combined strength of the three Goddesses.
Goddess Gayatri is worshipped as the deity, which expresses the untiring pursuit of knowledge and wisdom. As per the Vedic literature, she is portrayed as the female form of the light of the sun. The light itself denotes the wisdom that enlightens the soul. The Gayatri Mantra extols the form of Gayatri Mata. The Gayatri Mantra is the Mula mantra or the most basic mantra in Hinduism. It helps the devotee attain and follow the ‘Sanatana Dharma’, which is the ideal of perfection.
Goddess Gayatri is shown to have five heads. Each head represents a pancha vayu or pancha prana – Samana, Udana, Prana, Apana and Vyana. Alternatively, they are said to represent the pancha tatwas – Prithvi (earth), Vayu (air), Jala (water), Aakasha (sky/ether) and Teja (fire). In her ten hands, she carries a shankha, chakra, varada, kamala, kasha, abhaya, ujjwala patra (utensil), ankusha and rudraksha mala.
According to mythology, Goddess Gayatri is considered as a form of Goddess Saraswati and is the spouse of Lord Brahma. As the story goes, Brahma was once conducting a ritual that required the presence of his wife Devi Saraswati. Goddess Saraswati was delayed for some reason and couldn’t arrive on time. This made Brahma furious. He asked the priests to wed him to any woman available, so that she can sit through the ritual as his wife. The priests searched for a woman who could take Saraswati Devi’s place and found a beautiful shepherdess Gayatri Devi. Brahma was married to her and the ritual was completed. It is believed that the shepherdess was an incarnate of Goddess Saraswati. It is said that as Brahma’s wife, Gayatri Devi presented him with the four Vedas. This is why Gayatri Devi is known as the Veda Mata. She is also the patron Goddess of artisans, poets and musicians.
The Gayatri Mantra follows the Vedic meter and has 24 syllables.
“Om Bhoor Bhuvah Svaha, Tat Savitur Varenyam, Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi, Dheeyo Yonah Prachodayat.”
‘Om’ is the primeval sound that existed before the creation of the world. ‘Bhoor, Bhuvah and Svaha’ translate to the physical, mental and spiritual worlds respectively. ‘Tat’ denotes the Paramatma, ‘Savitur’ is the creator or the sun, ‘Varenyam’ means the highest and the word ‘Bargo’ means luster and tejas. ‘Devasya’ denotes the supreme God and ‘Dheemahi’ means to meditate upon. ‘Dheeyo’ is the understanding and intellect, ‘Yo’ refers to the word who and ‘Nah’ means our. The last word ‘Prachodayat’ is the act of enlightenment.
