Gayatri, is the form of the rising sun that is honoured through the most renowned Gayatri mantra. The mantra is traditionally used in a procedure called Sandhyavandanam, through which the sun is honoured at different times of the day. A key aspect of this procedure is the Gayatri mantra japa, where the timeless Gayatri mantra is recited a number of times, in order to honour the sun.
Prior to reciting the Gayatri mantra, the Gayatri is invoked into the heart of the practitioner, through this Gayatri Avahana mantra. It praises the power of Gayatri and asks her to enter our heart and shine radiantly within us.
Listen...enjoy...and shine radiantly in your heart.
