May we attain that excellent glory of Savitar the God:
So May he stimulate our prayers. <Listen>
Gayatri Mantra is, surely, the most popular rik of Rig Veda. Its ever-growing presence and importance, felt among us, is though more than a matter of mere chance. Kalicharan’s Veda, in its chapter “The Sacred Thread”, undoes the secret coded (by the Rsis) within the Gayatri Mantra, and in doing so shows how the Mantra was purposely made a key to unlock the doors of the understanding of Rig Veda. No doubt, all credit must go to Gayatri Mantra, which by this time has had already gained enough inertia, following and dynamics, so as to be able to start revealing the Rig Veda.
The first line “Om Bhur Bhuvah Svah” is not recorded in Rig Veda (and not discussed in Kalicharan’s Veda). However, by uttering the veiled names of Four Realms it proves itself as a worthy, verbal addition (effected by none other than the Rsis) to the rest of the body of the Mantra and its meaning and purpose.
