Word to word meaning of Gayatri Mantra.

अस्य श्री गायत्री मंत्र:।

ॐ भूर्भुवः स्वः तत्सवितुर्वरेण्यं भर्गो देवस्य धीमहि धियो यो नः प्रचोदयात्।
भू: bhuH
भुव: bhuvaH
स्व: svaH
तत् tat
सवितु: savituH
वरेण्यम् vareNyaM
भर्ग: bhargaH
देवस्य dEvasya
धीमहि dhImahi
धिय: dhiyaH
य: yaH
न: naH
प्रचोदयात् prachOdayAt

Now let's understand the meaning of each word..
ॐ (AUM) -- It is the premordial sound.
A combination of sounds corresponding to CREATION, MAINTENANCE & DESTRUCTION.

भू: (bhuH)-- It represents भूलोक: The material world in which we live.

भुव:(bhuvaH)-- It represents अंतरिक्ष लोक: in which the material world exists.
स्व:(svaH)-- It represents स्वर्ग लोक: or a higher plane of existence.

These three words not only represent three different worlds but they also represent how gross or subtle we perceive life within our own self.
धीमहि which means 'we meditate upon'

• What do we meditate upon?

तत् भर्ग: which means 'brilliance'

• What kind of brilliance?

वरेण्यम् भर्ग: which means 'highest kind of brilliance'

• Whose brilliance is this?

देवस्य Of the divine entity.
• Which divine entity?

सवितु: वरेण्यम् भर्ग: Of the divine entity who gave birth to life.

• Why do we meditate on it?

प्रचोदयात् - So that it may propel or drive.

• Drive what?

न: धिय: - Our minds.
• In which direction does it propel?

भु: भुव: स्व: - From gross to subtle direction.

Let's now rearrange the words and understand the meaning.

धीमहि तत् (भर्ग:) वरेण्यम् भर्ग: सवितु: देवस्य
{We meditate upon the highest brilliance of the source of life}
य: प्रचोदयात् न: धिय:
{Which may propel our minds}

भू: भुव: स्व:
{From the material world to subtle planes}

Peacefuls at work! Kindly read.

The Muslim problem had been created in lndia with the very first conversion to Islam in Debal, Sindh, Pakistan.

This man was promptly named Maulana Islami and sent, with a Syrian noble, to deliver a message of Muhammad bin Qasim to Raja Dahir.
When the two entered Dahir's court. the Syrian bowed low to salute, but the newly converted Muslim refused to bow or to salute.

Raja Dahir recognised him and asked him why he was not observing the court etiquette, and then he said that with his change of religion..
..his loyalty now was to "the king of Islam''.

Change of religion had resulted in change of nationality!

The Pakistani mentality had born.

Oleg Kalugin, Counter Intelligence head in Soviet union, wrote in 1973 that, our agents are in every department of India.

Whether it is Intelligence, Count. Intelligence, Police, Defence Ministry, Foreign Ministry.... everywhere.
In 1978, around 30 Indian traitors were working under him in which 10 were Intelligence Officers.
Kalugin remembered and said that,

Once ek indian minister ne secret information dene ki peshkash ki and demanded $50,000.

KGB said Mantri ji jo secrets aap hame dene aye hain, wo foreign & Defence Ministry already sold us.
