👉 QUERIES ABOUT THE MANTRA (Part 8)

Q.8. What is a Beej Mantra? How is it applied?

Ans. All religions of the world make use of a part of their scriptures as a representative Beej Mantra. Thus Mohammedans have their Kalma the Christians Baptism, and the Jains Namonkar Mantra. The Gayatri Mantra is the Beej Mantra for the Hindus.

An abbreviation of a Ved Mantra is also known as its Beej Mantra. Literally the word ‘Beej’ Means ‘Seed’. In the seed are inherent all the characteristics of the tree. The DNA of a person is also akin to the seed of a plant, since it contains all genetic characteristics of a living organism. Beej Mantras, like the microchips in the computer, are small but extraordinarily effective for invocation of specific streams of divine powers for particular objectives. The application of Beej Mantras, however , belongs to Tantrik System and these can only be made use of under the guidance of an expert.

In Gayatri Mantra as a whole, there are Beej Mantras Bhur, Bhuwaha and Swaha, corresponding to each of its three segments. Besides, each of its 24 letters has a beej Mantra of its own. The Beej Mantra in Gayatri is applied after the ‘Vyahriti’ (Bhur  Bhuwaha Swaha) prefixing “Tatsaviturvarniyam...” It is also used as a suffix (samput) after “Prachodayat. (Ref. “Gayatri Ka Har Akshar Shakti Shrot”).

Q.9. How is rishi Vishwamitra related to Gayatri Mantra?   

Ans. Vishwamitra was the first rishi of this kalpa (the present cycle of creation) who could access all powers of Gayatri. In spiritual parlance,  he was the first master of  Gayatri Sadhana. Rishi Vishwamitra standardised the procedures of Gayatri Sadhana for the common man.
