For anyone feeling alone or anxious in lockdown, join Deva Premal and Miten’s daily OM and Gayatri Mantra Meditation – their version of the recent Italian phenomenon of ‘singing from the balcony’. Together we can still create beautiful moments of connectedness and oneness though physically separated.
The Gayatri mantra is the oldest and most powerful of all mantras. Its quality is to purify not only the singer, but also the listener, creating a tangible sense of wellbeing in whoever is exposed to it.
Om tat savitur varenyam
Bhargo devasya dhimahi
Dhiyo yonah prachodayat
Translated, it means:
May all beings on earth attain Enlightenment, but as with all mantras, the meaning of the Sanskrit is not as important as the effect the vibrations of it have on the body and energy centres.
