Prayer to Gayatri for attainment of Noble Intellect
Om bhoorbhuvas suvaha tatsaviturvarENyam
dhiyO yO nah prachOdayaat II
‘Aum’, we meditate upon that splendour of supreme Sun Lord. May He impel us in our intellect.
kashaaha shubhram kapaalam guNam
yugalam hastairvahanteem bhajE II
I meditate on Gayatri who sports five faces of pearlish white, coral reddish, golden, bluish and fair complexion, who wears a crown embedded with moon, who is of the nature of the letters which elucidate the highest truth, who holds the gesture of benediction, fearlessness, goad, noose, white skull, conch, discus and two lotuses in her hands.
