Adi Shankaracharya Explains Gayatri Mantra


Thusya prachodayatu sabdanistasya atmanah
Swarupabhutam param brahma tat savitur ityati padayh nirdisyateh
Atra tat subdena prthyagbhutam swatah siddham param bramhma uccayathe)

Savitri is the Creation, Sustenance and dissolution,the differentiation of being two as Jivatman and Paramatman gets obliterated.

(srustistitilayam lakshnasya sarvaprpanjasya dwaitabhavasya adistanam lakshyate)

Varenyam stands for the Ananda Rupa of the Brahman.

(“varenyamiti” sarvaraneyam niradhshayaandarupam)

By chanting Varenyam one the impurities of the Mind, and Chitta are removed and Knowledge shines forth.
