What is Spiritual Ascension?

Who are the Gods we pray to?

Source creates a sound vibration => from sound comes light. Light is the manifestation of particle matter. The Geomantic (Ramyanas) Entity polarized its consciousness and formed two 15 Dimension Time Matrix Systems (Light Fields). Our system and another parallel system.  This Time Matrix system is the system of duality (polarization).

 If we are looking for the GOD source....our system and the combination of all systems (all universes/galaxies/planets and all beings everywhere) is the GOD source....Our system was seeded by "THE YUNASAI", "The source of the creation of our Godseed" View genesis2012. We (Earth and our solar system) are in this Ramyanas 15 dimension time matrix system.

What is the true significance of Ramayana. Why was the name Rama chosen? The story/history of Rama is to help humanity stay open to the Higher Source frequencies of Ramyanas (the energies of the 3rd Primal Sound through which our Time Matrix was manifest). The Ra Maa Mantra/tone carries these 12 -14 Dimension frequencies. Chanting/toning the sounds RA-M'aa activates us to the higher frequency energies.

Why do we pray to so many GODs when there in only ONE true/absolute SUPREME SOURCE? Our time matrix system has many governing bodies. Some of these are here to establish their own agenda. Seekers of the Absolute Truth should not get caught up in the Religious based teachings. There is a lot we are not made aware of. The higher truth is very different from what is taught on this planet. Worshipping the GODs / Ascended Masters makes us submit our energies and power to these GODs. 

The term GOD by higher definition says that "we are all gods". Since all is part of Source, everything and and everyone is source. GOD is an Earthly term. Anyone can respond to GOD as all are GODs. Calling on GOD actually opens the door for anyone to respond. All beings (both from the light and dark) are from Source (GOD). Dark beings can also answer to GOD.

How do we know who is answering to our prayers to GOD? we don't. So be very careful. Call on the light. Even beings/ascended masters of the light less than dimension 12 are not from the pure light source. Everyone less than dimension 12 in this time matrix system has a level of contamination in their system. Healers especially have to be very careful as to the energies they are transmitting.

The key question is....how do we connect to our GOD source? and not to the false GODS created/worshipped by humans.

Who are we? What is our whole being? What is the Soul/Oversoul/Monad?

The answers to these questions are at many levels. We are all provided information according to our eagerness/hunger. The system is created to provide any level of information to those that are absolute and sincere seekers. Just like grade one students can only comprehend what their level of mentality can absorb at that time span, hence providing PHD level information to a grade one student would be overwhelming, confusing and non relevant. Most people dwell in their inherited belief system...which they allow themselves to believe to be the truth.

WHAT IS THE UNIVERSAL TRUTH? The answer to this question is overwhelming and most will not accept it as it is outside their belief system or level of understanding. What we are made to believe on this planet is not the truth. The beings we pray to came from higher planetary systems. We turned them into GODs because they showed more powers. This has been the case in all religions. Humans have been kept in the dark on purpose. We used to be higher level beings with 12-48 DNA strands. We now have only 3-5 DNA strands active. All our other strands have been made dormant. Why? The answer to this is what ascension is about.

We have been caught in this Universal Time matrix for hundreds of thousands of years. Our higher Soul layers have the memories of all our past lives. We can tap into these higher layers by opening our inner channels. To do this we have to stop giving our power to outside GODS (masters)...stop praying / worshipping outside of your SELF. The journey to source can only be attained from within. Our higher aspects (Soul / Atma / Monad) are the closest connections to source.

The journey within starts by understanding that creation of all Universal Time Matrix systems (all Universes) have multiple dimensions. Our Universal system has 15 dimensions. All the planets in our Universe (including their Sun's) are at various dimension levels. Earth over many millions of years dropped in dimensional frequency from an 8th dimension system to its current 4th dimesional level. There are many reasons/explanations for this. Our high aspects reside in the higher dimensions. Our soul layer is in Dimension 6 (6D). Our Monad which is the soul's soul is in 8D. Our god seed is in 12-15D.

Ascension means we have to raise our frequency from the current 4D level to 12-15D level.

Meditation / Sadhana by itself does not get us there....it helps us balance but does not do the job. Why? We have accumulated an immense amount of negativity in our system over all the many births. Our energies are all over the place. We have to clear all negativity from all time lines, bring in all aspects of our energy into its whole being and open the higher channels. This requires higher DNA activation. The higher frequencies require 12 or more DNA strands to be activated.

Chakra cleansing activation opens up our channels.

A recommended Ascension Process :

  1. Clear all energy and karmic blocks from your physical/mental/emotional layers [ start by forgiving your self and all beings that you may have caused harm to knowingly or unknowingly. Remove/let go all guilt from your system. Feel love for yourself and all beings]. Vipassana Meditation Program helps do this.

  2. Clear and activate your Chakras - Activation of chakras help open up your channels to receive the higher frequencies.

  3. Mantras connect to universal creative forces and spiritual masters (if you use their name-mantras). Mantras using Bija sounds have immense power. Breath with mantras provide a much stronger and effective force.

  4. The GAYATRI BIJA SOUNDS MEDITATION is a powerful starting point to initiate the process of chakra activation in your system and opening higher channels.

  5. Daily practice (minimum 16 cycles...the more the better) will prepare you for the higher processes of ascension. There are many levels. This is the beginning step.

  6. Open up your higher frequencies through the techniques (of sound/light induction) taught in the High Frequency Soul Awakening programs

 Researched Information below on Gayatri Mantra obtained from


Gyatr Mantra

this page last updated on 18-Oct-2005

We meditate on the glory of the Creator;
Who has created the Universe;
Who is worthy of Worship;
Who is the embodiment of Knowledge and Light;
Who is the remover of all Sin and Ignorance;
May He enlighten our Intellect.


The Gyatr Mantra is first recorded in the Rig Veda (iii, 62, 10) which was written in Sanskrit about 2500 to 3500 years ago, and by some reports, the mantra may have been chanted for many generations before that.

The word Gyatr (mw352) is a combination of Sanskrit words, although there is some disagreement in various texts about the exact derivation.

One suggestion is that the word Gyatr is made from these two words:
gyanath (mw352)  what is sung, giving of praise
tryate ( mw457, root trai)  preserves, protects, gives deliverance, grants liberation

Another viewpoint suggests that the roots are:
    -  gaya (mw348)   vital energies
tryate ( mw457, root trai)   preserves, protects, gives deliverance, grants liberation 

The word Mantra (mw785) means instrument of thought, sacred text, or a prayer of praise.

So, the two words "Gyatr Mantra" might be translated as: a prayer of praise that awakens the vital energies and gives liberation.

And indeed, this is such a prayer.

The Use of Mantra:

Sri Aurobindo, in Hymns to the Mystic Fire, wrote:

"We have to invoke the gods by the inner sacrifice, and by the word call them unto us - that is the specific power of the Mantra, - to offer to them the gifts of the sacrifice and by that giving secure their gifts, so that by this process we may build the way of our ascent to the goal... We give what we are and what we have in order that the riches of the Divine Truth and Light may descend into our life."

In his book Sdhan, Sr Swmi Shivnanda wrote:

"Of all the mantras, the supreme and the most potent power of powers is the great, glorious Gyatr Mantra.

It is the support of every seeker after Truth who believes in its efficacy, power and glory, be he of any caste, creed, clime or sect. It is only one's faith and purity of heart that really count. Indeed, Gyatr is an impregnable spiritual armor, a veritable fortress, that guards and protects its votary, that transforms him into the divine, and blesses him with the brilliant light of the highest spiritual illumination.

... It is universally applicable, for it is nothing but an earnest prayer for Light, addressed to the Supreme Almighty Spirit.

... This single mantra, repeated sincerely and with clear conscience, brings the supreme good."

The Invocation:

Chanting of the Gyatr Mantra is often prefaced with either a short invocation or a long invocation and is often followed with a closing.

The following are examples of two common invocations. In either of the  invocations, we begin the recitation of the Gyatr Mantra with an invocation using the sacred symbol Om to acknowledge and pay homage to the One who is beyond name and form.

- Short Invocation:

This invocation is acknowledging and joyously celebrating that Om is bhr, Om  is bhuvas, Om is suvaha... Om is everything.

The terms bhr, bhuvas, suvaha (mah vyhritis) are invocations to honor the planes of our existence and to call to our aid the presiding deities of the three planes in which we live our ordinary life: the physical, astral and mental planes.

The three lokas (bhr, bhuvas, suvaha) are the bja (seed) mantrams of the devats called Agni, Vyu and ditya who are being invoked to assist in our transformation. (See Chandogya Upanishad (IV, xvii, 1-3) and (II, xxiii, 3)).

Then Prajpati reflected on the three lokas and from this reflection was born OM. As veins pervade all leaves, so Om pervades all sound. Verily all this is Om! Verily all this is Om!

                                        Chandogya Upanishad (II, xxiii, 3)

The short preamble is simply these four words: 


click here to hear Sai Baba chant the Gayatri with short invocation.

The Sanskrit character that is transliterated as bh is a very earthy sound that virtually explodes from the diaphragm. Listen carefully to the Sai Baba recording. To learn to make this sound, try saying "who" while sharply pulling in the abdominal muscles and forcing the diaphragm upward.... then add the "b" sound and do the same with bhr (pronounced "bhoor").

(Please see the notes below regarding spelling and pronunciation of Sanskrit words)

- Long Invocation:

As with the shorter version, this invocation is a recognition that there are many worlds, all empowered by the nameless, formless, birthless, deathless which is symbolized by om.... om is everything.

These seven lines of the long invocation are the seven lokas, or planes, of existence, and are used not only to recognize and honor the planes of existence, but also to call the presiding deities of those planes to aid in our transformation and realization:

om bhh
om bhuvaha
om suvaha
om mahaha
om janaha
om tapaha
om satyaM

click here to hear Sreedevi Bringi chant the Gayatri with long invocation.

This magnificent chant by Sreedevi Bringi is done in the ancient, traditional Vedic manner which has been handed down from generation to generation for thousands of years.

The seven lokas,  may be briefly described as:

bhh - earth, the physical world
bhuvaha - astral/desire/breath, the world of becoming
suvaha - mental, the world of thinking
mahaha - causal, silent mind, the world of emotion
janaha - world of creative generation
tapaha - world of intuition
satyaM - world of Absolute Truth

This recital of the lokas begins with the gross, physical world filled with separation and differences and then each, in sequence, becomes more refined, more transcendent, more unified, more all-encompassing.

The recitation of the lokas, done with intent and clarity, prepares one for the chanting of the Gyatr Mantra by harmonizing and attuning one with all the worlds.


Body of the Gyatr Mantra:

The body of the Gyatr Mantra is written as:


The transliterated text is:

om tat savitur vareNyaM

bhargo devasya dhmahi

dhiyo yo nah prachodayt

Swmi Shivnanda's translation of the Gyatr Mantra is:

We meditate on the glory of the Creator;
Who has created the Universe;
Who is worthy of Worship;
Who is the embodiment of Knowledge and Light;
Who is the remover of all Sin and Ignorance;
May He enlighten our Intellect.

A succinct and delightful translation by S. Krishnamurthy is:

We meditate upon the radiant Divine Light
of that adorable Sun of Spiritual Consciousness;
May it awaken our intuitional consciousness.

Here's a simple word-by-word translation:

Om - Om (Brahman, the One, the Godhead, Supreme Deity)

tat - that (referring to Savitri, Paramatma, God)

savitur - (mw1190) -  Savitri, the Spiritual Sun (that from which all is born), the One Light, the all-pervading Consciousness

O nourishing Sun, solitary traveler, controller, source of life for all creatures, spread your light and subdue your dazzling splendor so that I may see your blessed Self. Even that very Self am I!

                                                 Isa Upanishad (16)

vareNyaM - most excellent, adorable, fit to be worshipped, venerable, worthy of being sought

bhargo - (mw748) - radiance, effulgence, splendor (the light that bestows understanding)

devasya - divine, of the deity

dhmahi -  we meditate upon... or may we meditate upon, reflect upon, be devoted to

dhiyo - prayer, noble thoughts, intuition, understanding of Reality (buddhis)

yo - he who, the one who

nah - our, of us

prachodayt - may he energize, direct, inspire, guide, unfold... or he who energizes, directs, inspires, guides, unfolds

(Please see the notes below regarding spelling and pronunciation of Sanskrit words, as well as the grammatical ambiguity of dhmahi and prachodayt.))

Short Closing:

bhr bhuvas suvar om

This simple closing phrase is magnificent, and is a powerful meditation all by itself, a joyous and humbling panoramic sweep from the initial earthy, lower chakra "bh" sound gradually becoming ever finer, transcending all the worlds, and culminating in the nameless, formless essence.

Long Closing:

Om po jyotih rasomritam brahma
bhr bhuvas suvar om

This beautiful closing pays tribute to the myriad forms of the One. A simple translation is:

Om, the Water, the Light, the very Essence in which we exist, the Absolute, the physical world, the astral realm, the mental realm, all are Om.



As you may have noticed, the preamble begins with Om, the first line of the Gyatr Mantra begins with Om and the closing ends with Om.

Om is in everything and everything is in Om. Indeed, the mantric repetition of this one syllable, Om, is of immeasurable value. It is often said that Om is the greatest of all mantras.

Swm Gambhrnanda suggests meditating in this manner:

I am Brahman, as signified by Om and as conditioned by my in which the sattva quality preponderates.

For clarification, here are quotes from various Upanishads describing the nature of Om:

I will give you the Word all the scriptures glorify and which all spiritual disciplines express, to attain which aspirants lead of a life of sense-restrain and selflessness. It is Om. This symbol of Brahman is the highest. Realizing it, one finds complete fulfillment of all one's longings. It is of the greatest support to all seekers.

                                               Katha Unpanishad (I, ii, 15-17)

Take the great bow of the sacred scriptures, place on it the arrow of devotion; then draw the bowstring of meditation, and aim at the target, the Lord of Love. Om is the bow, the soul is the arrow, and Brahman is called its target. Now draw the bowstring of meditation and hitting the target, be One with It.

                                        Mundaka Upanishad (II, ii, 3-4)

Fire is not seen until one firestick rubs across another, though the fire is still there, hidden. So does Brahman remain hidden until being revealed by the mantram Om. Let your body be the lower firestick and the mantram Om be the upper. Rub them against each other in meditation and realize Brahman.

                                        Shvetashvatara Upanishad (1, 13-14)

Daily spiritual practice:

The beautiful rhythmic patterns, soothing ancient sounds and powerful intent make the Gyatr Mantra a magnificent part of daily spiritual practice.

The Gyatr Mantra combines the effects of mantric sound with the effects of a deep and profound prayer, resulting in a combination which is exceedingly potent.

As with all spiritual practices, this is a vehicle for intent. The stronger and greater the intent, the stronger and greater the results.

Spiritual progress does not succeed merely by means of  intellectual reasoning or theoretical arguments, but rather by direct experience. If you would like a deeper understanding of the Gyatr Mantra, it is well and good that you should begin with an intellectual understanding of the words and the intent, but that is only a preliminary step leading to your own direct experience of That Which is beyond words.

Humble Submission and Selfless Unity:

Many of the greatest prayers, such as the Gyatr Mantra from the ancient rishis of India, the Ftiha which was received by the prophet Muhammad, and the Lord's Prayer which was given to us by Jesus, all share some magnificent similarities, illustrating the highest and noblest principles of prayer.

In each of these great prayers, the opening lines are a humble recognition that there is a Greater Power, and that all that we receive comes from the will of that Greater Power. Such prayer is an act of humble submission to That Which is beyond our understanding.

And the final lines of each of these great prayers, in humble submission to a Greater Power, acknowledge the gifts of understanding and awakening which are continually bestowed upon all of mankind, even though so few are even aware of the gifts. This humble recognition of the gifts that are constantly showered upon us is an essential element of the highest spiritual practices that we have been given, leading us toward the understand that we can and should rise above our differences and divisions, emerging from our delusion of separation and becoming aware of the Light of Unity which already shines upon all of creation.

Create your own unique rendering:

Armed with the definitions of the Sanskrit words and your own unique insight into what the mantra means for you (which may change over time), it may be very useful to write your own personal rendering of the meaning of the mantra.

For example, here is my current rendering:

We meditate upon the Divine Radiance,
that One Light which deserves our worship,
the One whose noble thought energizes and directs our awakening.


Audio recordings of the Gyatr Mantra:

Using the Short Invocation:

   - Gayatri Mantra sung by Anuradha Paudwal

Using the Long Invocation:

   - Sreedevi Bringi chanting the Gayatri Mantra with long invocation

   - Gayatri Mantra sung by wahiduddin


Other Gyatr Mantras:

There are many versions of the Gyatr Mantra in which deities other than Savitur are invoked.

For example, there is a Vishnu Gyatr, a Shiva Gyatr, a Durg Gyatr, an Agni Gyatr, and so on. In general, these mantras are very similar to, and perhaps derived from,  the form of the original Gyatr of the Rig Veda.


The transliterations of the Gyatr Mantra given on this page include the Sanskrit rules of grammar known as sandhi.

2) The notation
(mw352) denotes, for example,  that the Sanskrit word
gyatr may found on page 352 of the Monier-Williams Sanskrit-English Dictionary.

3) There is a interesting and powerful grammatical ambiguity in the terms dhmahi and prachodayt, wherein the phrase may either be expressed as a prayerful desire or as a statement of fact.

The term dhmahi can indicate a desire in the form of "may we meditate upon" or it can also indicate a statement of fact such as "we meditate upon".

Similarly, the term prachodayt indicate a desire in the form of "may he awaken our intuition" or it may also indicate a statement of fact such as "he awakens our intuition".

This ambiguity allows for a variety of interpretations according to one's current beliefs and spiritual understanding. For some, the prayerful beseeching using "may.." is very important. For others, the recognition of these conditions as already having occurred is a cause for rejoicing and joyful praise.

4) Please note that transliterations are not phonetic... there are specific rules for pronouncing each transliterated character.

There are many more characters in the Sanskrit alphabet than there are in our English alphabet, therefore some English letters are used in more than one way, such as n and N representing two different sounds, or a and    representing two different sounds.

Here are phonetic guidelines for some common vowels used in this transliteration:

long vowels:   is like a in father,    is like ee in reel,  is like u in rude
short vowels:   a as like u in but,  i is like i in if,  u is like u in full,  o as in oat.

5) You may be wondering why the first loka is written as bhH, but is written as bhr in the short preamble, and is  written as bhh in the long preamble.

Simply, this is how the rules of Sanskrit grammar (sandhi) operate on the character called visarga which is the final character of each of the first six lokas.

Written all alone, the first six lokas are written as: bhH, bhuvaH, suvaH, mahaH, janaH and tapaH,  where the letter H denotes the Sanskrit character called visarga.

When the character visarga ends a word, the sound of the visarga depends upon both preceding sound as well as the following sound. This can make the language very confusing and sometimes ambiguous, but it also brings a sense of life into the language... just as our lives change depending upon who we are around, so the visarga changes the sound of the word depending upon what sounds are around it... a delightful sort of alphabet karma.

Written all alone, with no following word, the first loka is properly written as bhH.

However, when the visarga is followed by "bh" then the  visarga creates a sound like an "r". Hence, bhH followed by bhuvaH is pronounced as bhr.

And when the visarga is followed by the syllable Om, then the visarga is pronounced like an "h" followed by the vowel that was immediately before the visarga. So, bhH followed by Om is pronounced as bhh.

A few on-line resources for the short form of the Gayatri Mantra:




The short excerpt of Sai Baba chanting with background and chorus is from the CD called
Embodiment of Love, by  Gianluca & Gabriele Ducros



The Gayatri Mantra is first recorded in the Rig Veda (iii, 62, 10). Of all the mantras, the supreme and the most potent power of powers is the great, glorious Gayatri Mantra.
