Gayatri Mantra: According to the Hindu scriptures Devi Gayatri is the Mother of the Vedas. It is said that even Trinities (Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva) worship her as their Mother.

The Gayatri Mantra is the prescribed daily mantra for all Hindus and regarded as the remover of all sins and the bestower of all desired things. It is also part of the Sandhya Vandana.

The sage Vishwamitra is given the credit for bringing Mother Gayatri to earth. The following is the most commonly recited Gayatri Mantra.

"Om Bhuh Bhuvah Svah Tat Saviturvarenyam
Bhargodevasya Dhimahi Dhiyoyonah Prachodayat"

The meaning of the Gayatri mantra is as follows:
We contemplate the glory of Light illuminating the three worlds: gross, subtle, and causal. I am that vivifying power, love, radiant illumination, and divine grace of universal intelligence. We pray for the divine light to illumine our minds.

Om: The primeval sound
Bhur: the physical world
Bhuvah: the mental world
Suvah: the celestial, spiritual world
Tat: That; God; transcendental Paramatma
Savithur: the Sun, Creator, Preserver
Varenyam: most adorable, enchanting
Bhargo: luster, effulgence
Devasya: resplendent, supreme Lord
Dheemahi: we meditate upon
Dhiyo: the intellect, understanding
Yo: May this light
Nah: our
Prachodayath: enlighten, guide, inspire

The other Gayatri Mantra is as follows:
"Om Bhu, Om Bhuvah, Om Svaa, Om Mahaa, Om Janah, Om Tapah, Om Satyam, Om Tat Savitur Varenyam Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi Dhiyo Yo Nah PrachodayatOm Apo Jyotih Raso-mritam Brahmaa Bhur Bhuvah Swaa Om"

According to the Hindu belief there are fourteen worlds. Bhu, Bhuvah, Svaa, Mahaa, Janah, Tapah, Satyam are the seven Higher worlds and Atata, Kutala, Vitala, Mahatala, Rasatala, Bhutala and Patala are the seven Lower worlds.

The above Gayatri mantra is recited by those seeking the Higher worlds.
