Hardev S. Thakur
Author & Acharya
Acharya is one in Vedic tradition professing
practising right/exemplary conduct.
This is Pranayama mantra, also called extended Gayatri Mantra.
Om bhūḥ। Om bhuvaḥ। Om svaḥ। Om mahaḥ। Om janaḥ। Om tapaḥ।
Hints for first line:
Here are enumerated the seven vyāhritis (holy utterances).
Om Earth (along with it chief god Agni, Fire)
Om Mid-region (along with its chief god Vayu, Air)
Om Bright Heavens (along with its chief god Āditya, Sun)
Om Great/Boundless [Brahma (the Universal Self), other deities are limbs]
Om Austerity [Brahma-consciousness]
Om food, life-breath, mind, intellect, bliss, consciousness, and truth, respectively. Om pervades all regions.
Take coverings (masks) off of food, breath, mind and intellect. Realise Self as bliss, consciousness and truth!
Hints for second line:
Om, we become aware of all the three planes/regions! We meditate on the treasured radiance (insights) of God Savitri (Creator) [as sung in the Vedas]. May He stimulate our intelligence [on right paths]!
Corn when heated pops and loses its capacity to germinate or grow. So too, in His radiance, we are rid of karma and pain of birth and death cycles. Our karmas become popcorns.
Hints for third line:
Om, He is Waters (particles, or even learned people), Light (radiance), Flavour (Bliss, or Soma), Immortal Brahma, and the three planes/regions: Earth, Mid-region (atmosphere) and Bright Heavens (stars).
