Invoking the Divine

Invoking the Divine

Reading this exposition led me to observe and reflect on what I feel when I sing an invocation, whether before meditating or just to begin the day.
Whenever I sing an invocation, I feel a subtle alchemy within my being. I feel the energy of the mind and body coming together to a point of stillness and clarity within me. Chanting an invocation to the divine power is also a way for me to access witness consciousness and be fully present.
Singing an invocation infuses my spiritual practices with divine love and sweetness toward my body. It allows my body to participate in a beautiful way. It gives me an experience of freedom and quietude, for invoking the divine frees me from the conditioning of the mind. In that way, I feel that my “insight is awakened” and I can apply the wisdom of spiritual teachings to my daily life.

I slowly read each line of this exposition and was uplifted and enchanted as the deeper meanings and understandings became more apparent to me.

Just when I was reading about the significance of the meter, I became aware of a small bird outside, singing, calling out. I focused on the sound of the bird. It was calling out happily and powerfully, seeming to express delight in this very moment. The sound was repeating in a regular meter, and I sensed a deep feeling of connection between us. I relaxed into the moment, into the sweet sound, and received its vibrations. I felt my heart throb and expand. I was sitting in this expanded state for a little while, feeling great joy. After some time, my attention again focused on the text in front of me, and the little bird soon finished its song.

Thank you so much, Gurumayi, for this sublime and potent exposition and for the grace that you bestow upon us to receive its deepest meaning and experience.

I have been chanting the shri gayatri mantra since childhood, as my late grandfather encouraged every member of my family to do so on a daily basis.
When I was in school, the vibrations of this mantra guided me throughout my study and exams.  Now, repeating it daily, I feel it unfolding within me in a mystical way: my mind becomes calm and focused during work, and the mantra offers me protection, helping me say the right words at the right time.
I am so grateful to Gurumayi for introducing the gayatri mantra, infusing it with the Siddha Guru’s shakti.
Thank you, Shri Gurumayi, for your treasured teachings.

I appreciate this exposition on the gayatri mantra—well researched, conveying a depth of knowledge, and written in a way that was easy for me to understand. Reading this kind of exposition makes it possible for me to take refuge in the scriptures.
