GAYATRI MANTRA FOR MEDITATING

Gayatri mantra is the most powerful mantra to meditate. Why? because Gayatri mantra has syllable "OM" that refer to GOD and this is the best rhyme (based on Bhagavad Gita). Gayatri mantra will bring your mind to the most peaceful world. But, one thing you have to do is pronounce it properly.

I have looked for good Gayatri mantra MP3 from yoga-mind-control.com. This is good version for meditating.

BHAGAVAD GITA 2.47

karmany evadhikaras te
ma phalesu kadacana
ma karma-phala-hetur bhur
ma te sango ’stv akarmani



You have a right to perform your prescribed duty, but you are not entitled to the fruits of action. Never consider yourself the cause of the results of your activities, and never be attached to not doing your duty.

NITISASTRA 1.16

visadapyamrtam grahyam
amedhyadapi kancanam
nicadapyuttamam vidyam
stri-ratnam duskuladapi

Even from poison extract nectar,
wash and take back gold if it has fallen in filth,
receive the highest knowledge even from a low born person;
so also a girl possessing virtuous qualities (stri-ratna) even if she be born in a disreputable family

BHAGAVAD GITA 9.22


ananyas cintayanto mam
ye janah paryupasate
tesham nityabhiyuktanam
yoga-ksemam vahamy aham

English Translation
But those who always worship Me with exclusive devotion, meditating on My transcendental form—to them I carry what they lack, and I preserve what they have.

Terjemahan Bahasa Indonesia

Tetapi orang yang selalu menyembah-Ku dengan berbakti tanpa tujuan yang lain dan bersemadi padaku. Aku bawakan apa yang dibutuhkannya, dan aku memelihara apa yang dia miliki 

NITISASTRA 13.8

rajni dharmini dharmisthah
pape papah same samah
rajanamnuvartante
yatha raja tatha prajah

Terjemahan bahasa Indonesia

kalau raja saleh, rakyatpun saleh
kalau raja jahat, rakyatpun jahat
raja setengah saleh setengah jahat, rakyatpun demikian
rakyat hanya mengikuti sang raja, sebagaimana raja, begitulah rakyatnya

English translation


If the king is virtuous, then the subjects are also virtuous.
If the king is sinful, then the subjects also become sinful.
If he is mediocre, then the subjects are mediocre.
The subjects follow the example of the king. In short, as is the king so are the subjects.
