GAYATRI:THE MOTHER OF THE VEDAS

O the four-footed Devi!
the manifest creation is your one foot,
invisible are the other three
in the highest heaven.

O the four-footed Devi!
Your gentle foot is this cosmos,
other three feet have their seat
above dark peaks on the Sun.

O Devi!You are the Light
from the primordial skies
in the beginning of creation,
the Mother of all Vedic hymns.

O Shakti! Your breath takes us to the origins
in ecstasy of primeval harmony,
hymning creations upon creations,
the source supreme of all hymns.

O Mother!
Your meter and diction
flow from some invisible source
in the all-pervading silence.

O Mother!
Agni, Savitri, Soma in you merge
to become the eternal chant
of supreme ecstasy.

O Mother! the primordial power,
Your chant rises from the realm of Savitri
from depths of the splendorous Sun
embracing the earth, heaven, the space in-between.

O Gayatri!Your every syllable stirs
the solar world’s ethereal waters,
making every speck and sphere sing
with Brhaspati’s sonorous voice.

O Mother of the Vedas!
Cosmic resonance is Your song,
the Nad Symphony
in every particle reverberates.

O Gayatri! O Devi!
You are the Shakti!
obeisance to you,
obeisance to you.

Om Bhur Bhuvah Svah
Tat Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi
Dhiyo Yo Nah Prachodyat
Shantih, Shantih, Shantih.

The ultimate in speech,
Word-in-flesh
of joyous grace,
bless.
