It took Battlestar Galactica to introduce me to the Gayatri Mantra and I’ve been hooked ever since.
Yes, it’s a Hindu chant and I’m a Christian, but as I noted in 2012 “I believe that the God I believe in has reached us in a variety of ways and for all the ways he allows us to access him, I am grateful.”
I listen to it from time to time and thought to share it here because it does a lot to clear my mind when I’m being creative. This version of the chant was featured in Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome.
Here it is written in English lettering –
Oṃ bhūr bhuvaḥ svaḥ
tát savitúr váreṇ(i)yaṃ
bhárgo devásya dhīmahi
dhíyo yó naḥ pracodáyāt
Translated, it means the following:
We meditate upon the radiant
Divine Light of that adorable
Sun of Spiritual Consciousness;
May it awaken our intuitional consciousness
Is there a specific song that calms your mind when you’re in the creative process? Do share.
