    Sathya Sai Baba sings Gayatri Mantra. Gayatri Mantra or any mantra should be chanted or contemplated synchronized with your breath for maximum effect. Hearing it is not as effective as contemplating it by breath. The Gayatri promotes the acquisition of Daivasakthi (God-power) [25-2-1965], whereby you come to the constant understanding, the beingness that, You are GOD, you are not the body/mind.

    The Sanskrit word mantra- consists of the root man- "to think" (also "mind") and the suffix -tra, designating tools or instruments, hence a literal translation would be "instrument of thought"

    The subtle effect of mantras (mystic formulae) mentioned in the Vedas cannot be seen or heard by the senses; they have to be experienced in and through the inner consciousness, the Anthahkarana. The sound of these mantras has the power to transform the impulses and tendencies. The word mantra means 'that which saves when turned over in the mind'. Repeating the mantra constantly in the mind will keep off wild talk, purposeless conversation, aimless gossip and scandal. - Sri Sathya Sai Baba

    Never give up the Gayatri; you may give up or ignore any other mantra but you should recite the Gayatri at least a few times a day.
    - Sri Sathya Sai Baba

    "Om Bhur Buvaha Suvaha
    Thath Savithur Varenyam
    Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi
    Dhiyo Yonaha Prachodayath"

    "We contemplate the glory of Light illuminating the three worlds: gross, subtle, and causal.
    I am that vivifying power, love, radiant illumination, and divine grace of universal intelligence.
    We pray for the divine light to illumine our minds."

    Om: The primeval sound
    Bhur: the physical world
    Bhuvah: the mental world
    Suvah: the celestial, spiritual world
    Thath: That; God; transcendental Paramatma
    Savithur: the Sun, Creator, Preserver
    Varenyam: most adorable, enchanting
    Bhargo: luster, effulgence
    Devasya: resplendent,supreme Lord
    Dheemahi: we meditate upon
    Dhiyo: the intellect,understanding
    Yo: May this light
    Nah: our
    Prachodayath: enlighten,guide,inspire

    The Gayatri is considered as Vedasara --"the essence of the Vedas." Veda means knowledge, and this prayer fosters and sharpens the knowledge-yielding faculty. As a matter of fact, the four mahavakyas or 'core-declarations' enshrined in the four Vedas are implied in this Gayathri mantra. So the Gayatri mantra has been given to you as a third eye to reveal to you that inner vision by which you may realise Brahman.[ 20-6-1977]

    It will protect you from harm wherever you are --traveling, working, or at home. Westerners have investigated the vibrations produced by this mantra and have found that when it is recited with the correct accent as laid down in the Vedas, the atmosphere around becomes visibly illumined. So Brahmaprakasha, the effulgence of the Divine, will descend on you and illumine your intellect and light your path when this mantra is chanted. Also repeat santhi thrice at the end, for that repetition will give santhi or peace to three entities in you --body, mind, and soul.[ 20-6-1977]

    Gayatri will protect your body, make your intellect shine and improve your power of speech. That is why Gayatri is considered to be very important for this second stage of your life, which you are entering today.[Editor: This discourse was given in connection with Upanayam, the sacred thread ceremony for boys.] [6-5-1995]

    It is essential to recite the Gayatri mantra at least three times during morning, noon, and evening. This will serve to reduce the effects of the wrong acts one does every day. It is like buying goods for cash, instead of getting them on credit. There is no accumulation of karmic (result of action) debt, since each day's karma (action) is atoned for that day itself by reciting the
    Gayatri mantra. [17-3-1983]

    Brahmaprakasha, the effulgence of the Divine, will descend on you and illumine your intellect and light your path when this mantra is chanted. [20-6-1977]

    Gayatri is the reliever of all diseases (Sarva roga nivaarini Gayatri).[23-8-1995]

    Gayatri wards off all misery (Sarva dhukha parivarini Gayatri). [23-8-1995]

    Gayathri is the fulfiller of all desires (Sarva vancha phalashri Gayatri). [23-8-1995]

    Gayatri is the bestower of all that is beneficial. [23-8-1995]

    If the mantra is chanted, various kinds of powers will emerge in one. Hence the Gayatri mantra should not be treated casually. [23-8-1995]

    The attitude of surrender will grow in us as we recite regularly the Gayatri mantra. [17-3-1983]

    Like sunrise after the night, the Gayatri mantra dispels the darkness of ignorance: Dhiyoyonah prachodayaath. The rays of the Gayatri mantra illumine the mind and intelligence and promote knowledge, wisdom and discrimination. [17-3-1983]

    This Gayatri has the subtle power of removing evil tendencies and implanting virtuous habits

    God's grace is easily secured by the sacred use of your senses - Sri Sathya Sai Baba

    The satisfaction that you get by participating in bhajans is temporary, whereas service confers permanent satisfaction.- (Divine Discourse, Aug 22, 2000) - BABA

    Make 4 resolutions about your life hereafter and live in joy.
    1. Practise Purity - Desist from wicked thoughts, bad habits and mean activities that weaken your self-respect.

    2. Do Service -- Serve others, for they are the reflections of the same entity of which you yourself are another reflection. No one of you has any authenticity on your own, except with reference to your Creator, the Lord.

    3. See Mutuality -- Feel always the kinship with all creation. See the same current flowing through all objects in the Universe.

    4. Live in Truth -- Do not deceive yourself or others by distorting your experience. -Sri Sathya Sai Baba

    As you sow, so shall you reap
    ALL the pains and pleasures man experiences are the results of his own actions and not due to any act of the Divine. God is only a witness. God is like a postman. He delivers to you whatever letter is addressed to you. The grief or joy you derive from the contents of the letter are your own. Likewise the suffering or happiness one experiences are the results of one's own bad or good deeds and are not derived from God.

    However, there is the operation of special grace on certain occasions. When you pray to God with a pure heart, without a trace of selfishness and with sacred feelings, God confers special favour. Moreover, when a person has done some unique act of sacrifice in a previous life or at any time in the past, the Divine confers an appropriate reward for it at the proper time.

    The ways of the Divine should be properly understood. God exists not for one nation or one community. God incarnates on earth for the benefit of all mankind. Each one gets the reward according to his deserts, As are his actions, so are the fruits thereof. Hence before doing anything, one should consider whether it is right or wrong. One should see that no harm occurs to anyone on account of one's actions. This is not easy for one who is attached to the pleasures of the body. All sorrow is related to the body and worldly desires. You experience desires in the waking state. In the sushupthi (deep sleep) state one is totally unaware of even the body and of the phenomenal world. Hence there is no sorrow in that state.

    Rely primarily on the power of the Divine
    By constant contemplation on God the mind should be turned away from mundane desires That is the way to get rid of both pain and pleasure. Man has to wake up from the sleep of ignorance and realise his divine essence Sath-Chith-Aanandha (being-consciousness-bliss). To the extent worldly desires are reduced, to the same extent bliss will be experienced. Simultaneously with the control of desires men should also get rid of Ahamkaara (egoism).
    Men today are filled with fear because they have no confidence in themselves. A bird can brave a storm because it has faith in its wings. But man succumbs to the slightest reverses of fortune because he does not rely on the power of the Spirit. People must rely primarily on the power of the Divine. With confidence in the Self, they should devote themselves to good deeds. This is the purpose of life. Every step you take must bring you nearer to God.
    Discourse in the Sai Kulwant Mandap on 30-6-1996.
