Q.10. What is the relationship between Gayatri Mantraand other powers of God ?
Ans. According to Savitri Upnishad, from the eternal omnipotence of God represented by Om, seven streams of divine power, known as Vyahritis, emanate. Three amongst these (Bhur , Bhuwaha and Swaha) form the prefix of Gayatri Mantra . The Vyahritis are also known as the ‘Sheersha’ (fountainhead) of Gayatri .
When Gayatri - the Primordial Power of the Divine, with Its totality of energy systems, interacts with the five basic elements of material universe (Panch Bhautik Prakriti - Savitri), complex, mysterious reactions are set into motion. Spirituality identifies these five basic elements (of which the entire material universe in its of solid, liquid and gaseous states and physical bodies of animate systems are composed) as Prithvi, Jal, Vayu, Tej and Akash. In course of interaction of the cosmic energies with these basic elements subtle sound waves similar to those produced by twenty-four letters of Gayatri Mantra are created.
In the course of thousands of years of research , Indian spiritual masters and yogis have evolved procedures for accessing divine energy by “tuning” into these cosmic sound waves by chanting of Gayatri Mantra , performance of Yagya and other associated procedures of Gayatri Sadhana .
