PART III


Then we do Pranayama 
ॐ   भूर्भुवः   स्वः
Gayatri Mantra: Om Bhur Bhuvah Svah


 भूर्भुवः स्वः
तत्सवितुर्वरेण्यं ।
भर्गो देवस्य धीमहि
धियो यो नः प्रचोदयात् ॥
Om Bhuur-Bhuvah Svah
Tat-Savitur-Varennyam |
Bhargo Devasya Dhiimahi
Dhiyo Yo Nah Pracodayaat ||

Meaning:
1: Om, (that Divine Illumination which Pervades the) Bhu Loka (Physical Plane, Consciousness of the Physical Plane), Bhuvar Loka (Antariksha or Intermediate Space, Consciousness of the Prana) and Swar Loka (Swarga, Heaven, Consciousness of the Divine Mind),
2: On that Savitur (Divine Illumination) which is the Most Adorable (Varenyam), ...
3: ... and which is of the nature of Divine Effulgence (Bhargo Devasya), I meditate,
4: May that Divine Intelligence (Dhiyah) Awaken (Pracodyat) our (Spiritual Consciousness).


We invoke the divine Intelligence pervading the Trilokas, The Earth, The Space and The swarga, The Heaven.

This is also a part of cleansing our breath to attain health of body and soul. Inhaling, holding and exhaling breath cleanses the lungs of impurities.  Again, a way of healthy life! 

Sankalpam: 

Sankalpa (Sanskrit: संकल्प) means conception or idea or notion formed in the heart or mind, solemn vow or determination to perform, desire, definite intention, volition or will.[1] In practical terms, the word, Sankalpa, means the one-pointed resolve to do or achieve; and both psychologically and philosophically, it is the first practical step by which the sensitivity and potentiality of the mind is increased; it is known as the capacity to harness the will-power and the tool to focus and harmonise the complex body-mind apparatus.

Sankalpah: Mamopatta-Samasta Duritakshaya-dwara-Sri–Parameswara - preetyartham Pratah Poojanca Karishye.

Mamopatta - All that has accrued in meSamasta-durita  -All sins
Kshaya-dwara -By destroying 
Sri Parameswara Preetyartham- to be worthy of the Grace of the SupremeLord
Paratah - of the morning
Poojanca -the Sandhya Goddess
Karishye -I begin to worship.

I worship  God of the Morning to be worthy of the Grace of the Supreme Lord by the destruction of all sins that have accumulated in me in previous births. 
  

While chanting this Mantra, we invoke our Gotra, the Rishis who were our ancestors, the sacred place we are praying the God and pray God to bless us with peace and prosperity.
