Introduction to Krishna Gayatri Mantra

Each year, everyone who participates in Sweet Surprise and studies Gurumayi’s Message has many means for practicing the teachings in Gurumayi’s Message talk. One of those is recitation of and meditation on mantras from the scriptures. These include gayatri mantras, which, when recited, are a powerful method for centering the mind.

In her Message talk for 2019, Gurumayi elucidates teachings from Shri Bhagavad Gita. This scriptural text is a song wherein Lord Krishna imparts wisdom to his disciple Arjuna, a great warrior whose mind is struggling with the prospect of going into battle with his own kinsmen. The wisdom that Arjuna receives from Lord Krishna strengthens him and enables him to fulfill his dharma.

This is a gayatri mantra whose deity is Lord Krishna. You may recite and meditate on the Krishna Gayatri mantra as part of your study and practice of Gurumayi’s Message for 2019. The melody of this gayatri mantra was composed especially for this study purpose. It is set in the Sarang raga, which is associated with Lord Krishna. Sarang raga evokes overflowing devotion, the longing and fervent love a person has for their chosen deity.
