“Samastha Lokaah Sukhino Bhavantu”
Let all beings in all worlds be happy
Om Saayeeshvaraaya Vidhmahe
Sathya Dhevaaya Dheemahi
I know through Gurus and Shastras (and by direct experience) that Sai is God Himself:
He is Bhagavan and Iswara.
I meditate on this form in my heart with all my mental faculties. He is the embodiment of truth, divinity, universal consciousness and one who pervades all the worlds.
I pray to such a Sai Parameswar to direct our intellects to engage in auspicious and righteous activities.
I meditate on this great form.
OM BHUR BHUVA SUVAHA
TAT SAVITUR VARENYAM
BHARGO DEVASYA DHEEMAHI
DHIYO YO NAH PRACHODAYAT
“O Mother ! Who subsists in all the three kaalas (Time: Past, Present and Future),
in all the three lokas (Lokas: Heaven, Earth and Lower Regions)
and in all the three gunas (Gunas- Attributes: Sathwa, Rajas and Thamas),
I pray to Thee, to illumine my intellect and dispel my ignorance just as
the splendrous sunlight dispels all darkness.
I pray to Thee to make my intellect serene and bright and enlightened”.
“Remember. Gayatri is a treasure you must guard throughout your life.
Never give up the Gayatri; you may give up or ignore any other mantra, but,
you should recite it at least a few times a day.
It will protect you from harm, wherever you are,
in a bus or car, or a railway station or plane, in a bazaar or on the road.
Brahma-prakasa, the effulgence of Brahma, will descend on you
and illumine your Intellect and light your Path when this mantra is chanted.
Gayatri is Annapurna, the Mother, the Sakthi that animates life.
So do not neglect it”. – Sathya Sai Baba
