Acrylic and graphite on canvas

Imprinted with the Gayatri Mantra from the Vedas:

Aum bhur bhuvah svah 

tat savitur varenyam 

bhargo devasya dhimahi 

dhiyo yo nah pracodayat 

We meditate on the transcendental glory of the Deity Supreme, who is inside the heart of the earth, inside the life of the sky and inside the soul of the Heaven. May He stimulate and illumine our minds.

This Vedic mantra was envisioned by the great Rishi, Vishwamitra. Sri Chinmoy writes: “The Gayatri Mantra is the most hallowed mantra of the Vedas. It is the mother of all the mantras…[It] can offer to the sincere seeker the Light of the Infinite, the Delight of the Eternal, and the Life of the Immortal.”

This musical composition was created and composed by Sri Chinmoy, using this audio excerpt.
