Mantra Raag – Gayatri Mantra for lighting Jyoti or Candle

mantra-1608-01The Gayatri Mantra is the supreme Vedic Mantra, also known as the Guru Mantra in Gayatri for it would be the first Mantra a Guru would teach a young disciple entering school (Guru-Kul from Sanskrit). The main Gayatri Mantra I am supplementing with another Revelation for lighting the Jyoti, Diya or Candle. This complete Gayatri Mantra can be recited at the start of a Puja when lighting a Jyoti or generally in any ceremony, and especially if lighting a lamp, even as for lighting Diya’s or Candles at Diwali. This Gayatri Mantra is sung in Raag Bhairvi.

ॐ भूर्भुवः स्वः
तत्सवितुर्वरेण्यं ।
भर्गो देवस्य धीमहि
धियो यो नः प्रचोदयात् ॥
