Special beauty of our Guruji is to explain complex things so simple, that each one one of us can easily relate and follow in our day to day life. 

This DVD has good linked episodes which the aspirants can easily choose at any point of time according to their interest. I have highlighted brief synopsis from each episodes of this DVD. Come, let's hear Guruji...

Guruji Pattabhiram
Why we need to chant Gayatri mantra?

In this episode Guruji explains beautifully the real purpose of chanting the Gayatri Maha Mantra. He emphasizes on the fact that mere chanting of Gayatri Mantra without knowing the purpose would be no use, even if one resort to chant over lakhs & lakhs of chanting. 

Gurjuji says, Whenever you want to do anything, always start with “kimartham” (why)? Why I have to chant this mantra? Spiritual sadhana should always begin with Kimartham (Why).

Gayatri Mantra which is the mother of all veda’s, came into existence due to intense exploration & contemplation by our Rishi’s. Our rishi’s have started their journey of such exploration with 3 vital questions which relates to all of us. Guruji’s in this section explains what are those three questions and why we need to find the answers for those three questions, which would lead one to know the purpose of chanting Gayatri Mantra.

Purpose of life is FREEDOM from all miseries
Here Guruji also shares great insight on the benefits of chanting Gayatri Mantra. He says when we start chanting Gayatri Mantra taking it as an Anushthana, in the beginning, it’s only the sound. However slowly the sound becomes the vibration, then the vibration becomes the form, the form then starts releasing the intuition knowledge that is hidden in the mantra. One has to chant this Gayatri Mantra to touch that intuitive knowledge that is there in the mantra. Additionally, chanting this Mantra regularly with the feeling brings such a wonderful harmonious vibration in the whole family.

Guruji further explains that the purpose of life is FREEDOM from all misery. Misery here is nothing but the attachment. To experience & reach that purpose, one need intelligence and this Gayatri Mantra assures Awakening of that intelligence.

Purpose of Gayatri mantra?

Listen to excerpts from this session from the youtube video below: 



Guruji from the above video not only explains the purpose of the mantra but also clearly defines the meaning of Sankalpa.  He says:

“Sankalka means, a determined prayer. The prayer from the depth of my entire being , that is called sankalkpa. Sankalpa means when I take any decision, taking every dimension of my personality into the confidence. Where the body, mind, the intellect, idea, all agree to that and say, yes we are with you, that is SANKALKPA.  But unfortunately, this sankalpa is not there in us. One part of the mind, takes the decision, and another part of the mind, immediately oppose that decision.  Please, look into it. You want to get up in the morning, You take the decision, but in the morning, You will not be able to get up in the morning, so where is the answer? The answer is, the whole being is not accepting the proposal.  So one need the power, which has the grace from the divinity, which has the cosmic touch, and that is ‘Dhee Shakthi’, that is intelligence, that is what we really want."

Mind Vs. Mantra

Mind is a very potential energy blessed by Divinity

Guruji in this episode explains about the relationship between the mantra and the mind. Guruji states that the Mind is a very potential energy that is blessed by the divinity and this mind has three capabilities, i.e. Composing, storing & deleting.  He further goes on in explaining how these three capabilities influence one own self and how the Mantra can help a Sadhaka to overcome from these blocks.

Guruji explains that, Every center of mind is used negatively which results in anxiety, insecurity & unknown loneliness. And these three are creating the foundation for the life creating restless energy continuously. So where is the protection? To come out of this, one need a special energy and that special energy is the mantra.

Guruji then gives an insight on how to overcome from our habit patterns that are dictating us and how chanting the Gayatri Maha Mantra would help us in rising above our habit & emotional patterns.

Vyahuritis – Three Planes of Consciousness

What feeling you have, you become that!
Gayatri Mantra has 3 parts.  First part is called Vyahurti, the second part is the Mantra and the third part is the Sheersha. Guruji explains what these are for & further goes on to explain the different levels in which our consciousness can relate & travel.

Out of the 14 planes, Guruji gives special importance to 3 levels, which talks about respectively the Material World, Emotional World & Ego (I).  He beautifully explains what these 3 levels are meant and how an aspirant is struck in these levels which is blocking one's spiritual journey.

In this episode, Guruji warns the aspirants that every attachment is creating misery and every misery is taking us to the Death. Since we are suppressing all our emotions, it comes out when we sit for the Meditation. Relationship means expectation. When that does not happen, then it leads to hurt, guilt, disappointment, frustration, expectation, assumption, images, conclusions, judgment, confusion, so on & so forth. Whenever you close your eyes for meditation, since all these are suppressed inside, they keep coming because we are not freeing the consciousness from these dead zone of life. What feeling you have, you become that, so Guruji here systematically explains how we can overcome these suppressed emotions. 

Meaning of Gayatri Mantra

Awaken our Intelligence
 
This session is one of the important episodes of this DVD, explaining the meaning of the Gayatri Mantra.  Often people chant this mantra without knowing the meaning of it. There would be no longer any confusion, if one listens to this episode. It is always said that one has to chant the mantra with the meaning & feeling. This is being taken care if one can listen to this episode, where Guruji explains meaning to each syllable in a very simple & direct way that we can easily relate while we chant this Mantra. A must watch.

Blending Intelligence & Innocence

It’s the mantra which helps in bringing out the divine potentiality that is there in every soul. Every soul is blessed with divinity; every soul is blessed with intelligence. We are citizen of two cities, the inner city and the outer city i.e. the Inner World & the Outer World. Gayatri Mantra gives us that Intelligence to travel in the Outside World and the Innocence to travel in the inside world. One need intelligence to travel outside and bring harmony. One need innocence to travel inside and experience the divinity. Guruji further goes on to explain how one can receive & blend the Intelligence & Innocence.

Interestingly in midst of this episode, Guruji jumps from English to Hindi & says beautifully that “Bhakthi ke saath akanda ananda prem hona chahiyae, baya nahi. (In devotion, only love should be there, not the fear).

Here Guruji also touch upon how a duty should be performed in an external world quoting Bhaghavad Gita verse.  He then explains beautifully how to discharge our duties in an external world without getting attached.

Preparing for Meditation

This is an important episode and it’s a rich treasure for any aspirant who wants to take up Meditation seriously. Preparation is very important for Meditation. Unless one does not give importance & priority to the preparation, one cannot sit for Meditation in its true essence.  Here Guruji explains step by step approach of how one can prepare for Gayatri Meditation. He stresses importance on the Posture. He explains how our posture is interconnected with our moods and how to over come. If you are one who tend to hunch your back while sitting for meditation, then this session is a MUST for you.

How to chant Gayatri Mantra & guided Meditation

Guruji explaining how to chant the Gayatri Mantra
This DVD is not complete without this episode. One can easily find out the Gayatri Mantra audio file over Internet or in any CD format and listen to it. However it is humble opinion that one should still go ahead & hear our Guruji systematically explaining how the Mantra should be chanted. Syllable where stress is required, and the areas where generally anyone who chants the Mantra can go wrong, is pointed out beautifully by our Guruji.By course of this exercise, people who already know the Mantra, could easily see how they might be chanting the Mantra wrongly over the years. Thanks Gurudev...

After explaining on how to chant the Gayatri Mantra, Guruji takes us through guided meditation and explaining step by step approach of Gayatri Meditation. Anyone who wants to pursue Gayatri Meditation sincerely, this step by step approach is of great value and enriched experience.

Couple of additional bonus from this DVD:

  • Guruji sharing the prayer that his Gurudev, Swami Rama used to recite
  • How Gayatri Mantra helps in dealing with the Karma of one’s own life 

As Guruji mentions in this DVD, to experience any knowledge, we need patience. If we don’t have the patience, one becomes a patient. Temptation will keep haunting, but temptation is not the opportunity. When the opportunity is there, grab it, whatever may be the cost. But the problem with all of us is that our priorities are so important in the life that we are missing so many opportunities that lord is giving to the soul. Gayatri Mantra is not merely chanting it without understanding these concepts. Without understanding this, even if you chant the Gayatri mantra for 20 to 30 years, mantra will not be able to help you. In the name of chanting the mantra, one should not become a mechanical dull parrot. When we do anything with clarity, we experience satisfaction & confidence. So are we ready to develop the deservedness to receive the grace from the divinity?

Let the Divinity bless you in your spiritual endeavor
