Gayatri Yantra

Om Bhur Bhuvah Svah Tat Savitur Varenyam Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi Dhiyo Yonah Prachodayat


Throughout all realms of experience
essential nature illuminating existence
is the adorable
May all beings perceive through
subtle and meditative intellect
the magnificent brilliance
of enlightened awareness.


Sitting on a lotus
Facing the guru
Of the one heart
Singing the gayatri
I am singing the gayatri
I am singing
I am the song

Than the mother comes
And takes over
The gayatri is singing me
In higher tone
Drags me along
I let it go

All the cells of my body
Vibrate the gayatri
The heat in my head
Burns concepts
The heat in my heart
Burns desires
Head and heart are one

In the emptiness of the body
I meet the guru
An empty form
This is it

Om paramatmane namah
