GAYATRI MANTRA & Its Scientific Meaning

Gayatri mantra has been bestowed the greatest importance in Vedic dharma.

This mantra has also been termed as Savitri and Ved-Mata, the mother of the Vedas.

!!  Om bhur bhuvah swah

 Tat savitur varenyam

Bhargo devasya dheemahi

Dhiyo yo nah prachodayat  !!


The literal meaning of the mantra is:

O God! You are Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Almighty, You are all Light. You are all Knowledge and Bliss. You are Destroyer of fear, You are Creator of this Universe, You are the Greatest of all. We bow and meditate upon Your light. You guide our intellect in the right direction.

Gayatri Mantra 1

The mantra, however, has a great scientific importance too, which somehow got lost in the literary tradition. The modern astrophysics and astronomy tell us that our Galaxy called Milky Way or Akash-Ganga contains approximately 100,000 million of stars. Each star is like our sun having its own planet system. We know that the moon moves round the earth and the earth moves round the sun along with the moon. All planets round the sun. Each of the above bodies revolves round at its own axis as well. Our sun along with its family takes one round of the galactic center in 22.5 crore years. All galaxies including ours are moving away at a terrific velocity of 20,000 miles per second.

 And now the alternative scientific meaning of the mantra step by step:



Bhur the earth, bhuvah the planets (solar family), swah the Galaxy. We observe that when an ordinary fan with a speed of 900 RPM (rotations Per minute) moves, it makes noise. Then, one can imagine, what great noise would be created when the galaxies move with a speed of 20,000 miles per second. This is what this portion of the mantra explains that the sound produced due to the fast-moving earth, planets and galaxies is Om.

The sound was heard during meditation by Rishi Vishvamitra, who mentioned it to other colleagues. All of them, then unanimously decided to call this sound Om the name of God, because this sound is available in all the three periods of time, hence it is set (permanent). Therefore, it was the first ever revolutionary idea to identify formless God with a specific title (form) called upadhi. Until that time, everybody recognized God as formless and nobody was prepared to accept this new idea.

In the Gita also, it is said, “Omiti ekaksharam brahma”, meaning that the name of the Supreme is Om , which contains only one syllable (8/12). This sound Om heard during samadhi was called by all the seers nada-brahma a very great noise), but not a noise that is normally heard beyond a specific amplitude and limits of decibels suited to human hearing. Hence the rishis called this sound Udgith musical sound of the above, i.e., heaven.

They also noticed that the infinite mass of galaxies moving with a velocity of 20,000 miles/second was generating a kinetic energy = 1/2 MV2 and this was balancing the total energy consumption of the cosmos. Hence they named it Pranavah, which means the body (vapu) or store house of energy



Tat that (God), savitur the sun (star), varenyam worthy of bowing or respect. Once the form of a person along with the name is known to us, we may locate the specific person.Hence the two titles (upadhi) provide the solid ground to identify the formless God, Vishvamitra suggested. He told us that we could know (realize) the unknowable formless God through the known factors, viz., sound Om and light of suns (stars).

A mathematician can solve an equation x2+y2=4; if x=2; then y can be known and so on. An engineer can measure the width of a river even by standing at the riverbank just by drawing a triangle. So was the scientific method suggested by Vishvamitra in the mantra in the next portion as under:-



Bhargo the light, devasya of the deity, dheemahi we should meditate. The rishi instructs us to meditate upon the available form (light of suns) to discover the formless Creator (God). Also he wants us to do japa of the word Om (this is understood in the Mantra). This is how the sage wants us to proceed, but there is a great problem to realize it, as the human mind is so shaky and restless that without the grace of the Supreme (Brahma) it cannot be controlled. Hence Vishvamitra suggests the way to pray Him as under:



Dhiyo (intellect), yo (who), nah (we all), prachodayat (guide to right Direction). O God! Deploy our intellect on the right path.

Full scientific interpretation of the Mantra: The earth (bhur), the planets (bhuvah), and the galaxies (swah) are moving at a very great velocity, the sound produced is Om , (the name of formless God.)

That God (tat), who manifests Himself in the form of light of suns (savitur) is worthy of bowing/respect (varenyam). We all, therefore, should meditate (dheemahi) upon the light (bhargo) of that deity (devasya) and also do chanting of Om. May He (yo) guide in right direction (prachodayat) our(nah) intellect dhiyo.


So we notice that the important points hinted in the mantra are:-

1) The total kinetic energy generated by the movement of galaxies acts as an umbrella and balances the total energy consumption of the cosmos. Hence it was named as the Pranavah (body of energy).

This is equal to 1/2 mv2 (Mass of galaxies x squre of velocity.)

2) Realizing the great importance of the syllable OM , the other later date religions adopted this word with a slight change in accent, viz., Amen and Ameen.

Divinity in the Aditya Hrudayam #SuryaNamaskara #Yoga #Meditation

Centuries ago, in the earlier yugas, a distressed Rama stood on this earth, in a battle field facing the wrath of his opponent Ravana on one such brightly lit morning, just that the mood was entirely different. As Ravana continued to intimidate him, Rama was not very inclined towards war. It was at this very prime moment that Sage Agastya appeared before him and shared with him a few pearls of divine wisdom. The Aditya Hrudayam is a profound set of verses composed by the Great Sage Agastya and rendered by Rama in his search for the answer to his distress on the battle field.

 lord_surya_on_the_seven_horse_chariot_with_dawnLORD ADITYA [SUN] IN HIS SEVEN HORSE CHARIOT WITH DAWN

The meaning of Aditya is synonymous with the Sun, the giver of energy that helps us enjoy all the experiences of life with our senses

Hrudayam relates to the one who shines or dwells in the heart. Hence the consciousness that resides in the heart of Aditya, pulsating with energy is the inner unchanging witness to all thought, words and deeds.


It is believed that by reciting the Aditya Hrudayam, one is blessed with pure thought, words and clean deeds carrying no karma forward and is ensured of moksha. The sun is universal, the brightest light of divinity visible to our consciousness and hence we bow to this light as a sacred form of the supreme for without it, there is no life, no consciousness.


The essence of the Aditya Hrudayam brings about all destruction to our fears and human inhibitions and prepares us for any calamity/unforeseen event in our lifetimes. The Aditya Hrudayam is a catalyst that helps control emotions while experiencing these events and bring them to moderation thereby seeking to achieve greater heights in our hunger for moksha.


The Aditya Hrudayam when literally translated describes the in detail the state of anxious Rama on the battle field when Sage Agastya appears before him. He teaches him the secrecy of divine worship of the sun which in our language translates to the Great Sun having warm rays with golden hues, nourishing and energizing the universe that rises and brightens up the horizon. It is an all encompassing bright light that is worshipped by both the Devas and Asuras.

This light empowers Chandra and Agni and therefore is equal to worshiping the lord of the world. He is the embodiment of all the Gods, self luminous and the sustainer of life. He is Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, Skanda, Prajapati, Indra, Kubera, Kala, Yama, Chandra, Soma and Varuna. He is the embodiment of the 8 vaasus, the Sandhyas, the twin Ashwins, the Maruts, Manu, Vayu, Agni, the maker of the seasons and the store house of divine light. He is the Son of Aditi, the inspirer of the senses, the nourished, the one with golden rays, the ever brilliant, the seed of the universe and the maker of the day.

He is the master of 7 green horses, having thousand rays, the destroyer of darkness, the source of happiness, the one who mitigates suffering and the infuser of life into the cosmic egg. He is the store house of riches, like the hiranya garbhah – the one with a golden womb, the illuminator, the bearer of the divine fire, the ever blissful and the destroyer of “cold” [evil minded]. He is the master of the 3 vedas, Rig, Yajur, Sama, he is the sender of dawn, the one who blesses us with rain, the one who crosses the Vindhya range, and the one who sports in the Brahmanadi. He is the giver of heat, adorned with rays and reddish in appearance. He is the Lord of the stars and planets and constellations and the origin of everything in the universe. he is the Lord who appears in 12 forms through out the year [12 months]. Salutations to Him!

He is the great lord who is the presiding deity of the eastern mountains and western mountains. He is the giver of victory, he is joy born out of victory, the golden one. He is the one who subdues the senses whose emergence makes the lotus bloom. The Sun is consciousness, that is seated in all those who live, in all created beings and he remains awake when all else sleeps. He is both the sacred fire as well as the fruits of such divine worship. Sage Agastya tells Lord Rama, Raghava, to sing the glories of the divine sun and conquer all the dangers that befall him; the Sun will not leave him. Concentrate on the Sun, recite this hymn 3 times and you will conquer all your fears and enemies.


Gazing at the supreme sun, Raghava recited this divine hymn and experienced the supreme joy of fearlessness and sipping water thrice; he purified himself and prepared for battle. Thus knowing the impending death of Ravana, Surya, and all the other great gods blessed Rama with victory.


The Aditya Hrudayam, in its divine words encapsulates energy into itself that spread divine vibrations around us as we recite these words. Over a period of time, this regular recital leads us to purify and conquer our inner thoughts and conquer our fears by discarding the desires that lead up to them. This profound knowledge is experienced everyday with the waking of the sun into our lives. It may also be described as the tiny drop of light we light for the Gods when we bow in reverence to them during our daily prayer. This fire is but a small speck, an extension of the larger ocean of flames that make up the great Sun.

India’s Mars mission crosses half the distance

Cruising towards a historic feat, the Indian space mission to Mars today crossed half the total distance to the red planet from Earth and was very much along the designated helio-centric trajectory.

 The Mars Orbiter Mission spacecraft crossed the mid-point of its path to Mars, thereby has travelled 337.5 million km in its elliptical orbit around the sun, ISRO sources said.


It took four minutes and 15 seconds for a message to reach the spacecraft and return, they said.

Incidentally, the spacecraft is crossing half the total distance on its way to Mars, a day after Earth was at its closest to the red planet, in their respective orbits.

The mission was very much in track and it was evident with the fact that the second Trajectory Correction Manouvre (TCM) planned on the spacecraft has now been considered not necessary and is expected to be performed only in June, scientists said.

ISRO has been continuously monitoring the spacecraft using its Deep Space Network complemented by that of Jet Propulsion Laboratory of the NASA and the five scientific instruments onboard the craft were “in good health.”

Track your Facebook ‘Friends’ precise location

The feature will be soon rolled out into iOS and Android app

Call it yet another attempt at intruding your privacy or a great way to advance social meet ups. Facebook has rolled out a new feature where your friends are notified when you are nearby or vice versa – enabling friends to catch up for a coffee or even watch a movie together.

Thankfully, the feature enables you to choose which one of your friends will get to know when you are nearby and how long they will remain notified, thereby enabling you to avoid those who you really want to.

The feature will be soon rolled out into iOS and Android app first in the United States. Facebook announced that the feature will only work if both – you and your friend – are on each other’s white list. “Sharing your location with Nearby Friends goes two ways — you and your friends both have to turn on ‘Nearby Friends’ and choose to share with each other to see when you are nearby. Your friends will only be able to see that you are nearby if you share this info with them and vice versa.”


You can even turn on precise location which could come out really handy to trace a friend or a dear one in a really crowded market.

The travel-sharing feature allows a friend to notify you when they are traveling. “You’ll be able to see the city or neighbourhood they are in, including on their profile. When you see a friend visiting a place you’ve been, it’s the perfect opportunity to send a recommendation for a great restaurant,”

The market is already flooded with apps that enable you to share your location with friends.

Apple has its own app called Find My Friends.

That enables you to locate friends and family using your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. The free app uses Apple ID to sign into the iCloud and you can send your location details ( can be a temporary share with time limits) to those in your contacts or even send an email. “When your friend accepts your invitation using the Find My Friends app on their device, you can start following their location. Your friends can request to follow your location the same way.”

Similarly,  SocialRadar currently works on your iPhone and could soon be available on Android and Google Glass.

The Bright Facts on Solar Power

Solar Aviation 


It is possible to fly a plane with solar power. The first fully solar powered flight dates back to 1974 with an unmanned aircraft called Astro Flight Sunrise. One of the main issues with solar powered flight is the weight involved. Batteries and solar panels are not light!

Solar Power Causes No Pollution 

In case you didn’t know, solar power is non-polluting! There are no poisonous emissions involved when using solar power like there are with fossil fuels.


Noise Free 

One of the best facts about solar energy is that it is noiseless. Solar panels do not make any noise when they are absorbing the sun’s rays!


Predicted By Da Vinci 


Da Vinci was not only an artist, but also a scientist and an extremely intelligent man. He predicted the use of the sun for power way back in 1447. He was a true visionary.


Federal Solar Tax Credit


The Federal Solar Tax Credit is offered in all 50 states in the U.S. This credit allows you to receive 30% off the installation by tax claim.

Cell Phones 


Cell phones and other small electronics can now be charged using solar power. You can find them all over the internet, but be sure to check their ratings and costs.

San Francisco’s Solar Power 


San Francisco, California has enough sunshine year-round to supply electricity to all its schools and government buildings. All they need to do is put solar panels on their roof tops!

John Herschel 


Scientist John Herschel used solar energy to cook his food on an expedition in Africa in the 1830s. The device he used was called a “hot box,” which was invented in 1767 by scientist Horace de Saussure. Solar power has come a long way over the past 200 years.

On a side note, John Herschel’s father discovered the planet Uranus! His name was Sir William Herschel.

On the Market in 1956 

1956 marks the first year that solar energy panels were put on the market. The cost of a single watt solar panel was $300. By 1958, space programs were using solar power, too!

Primary Life Source 


Even though we humans think we are embarking on some new found way to harness energy, solar power in itself is the life force for all living things since the beginning of time. Without the sun, there would be no life on earth.

India’s Engineering Wonders: 5 Longest Expressways in The Country

Indian road network, with an estimated length of about 4,689,842 kilometers, is the 2nd largest in the world. It consists of expressways, national highways, state highways, peripheral roads and local roads.

Yamuna Expressway, Uttar Pradesh


Also known as Taj Expressway, Yamuna Expressway is a 165 km long, a 6-lane controlled-access expressway. It connects Greater Noida with Agra located in the state of Uttar Pradesh, India. It was formally inaugurated on 9th Aug, 2012 by the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and was thrown open to the public. The total project cost is approx Rs.13000 crores. The beautiful expressway includes long flyovers, 7 interchanges and many major bridges along with elevated highway of few kilo meters.

It is India’s longest six-lane controlled-access expressway facilitated with CCTV, SOS booths for safety and accident assistance, mobile radars to monitor compliance with minimum and maximum speed limits as well and one highway patrol at every 25 km.
