One stream of Gayatri is called Ritambhara or Prajna. One prays to Savita deity for the “Dhee” (intellect) element. It is none other than Ritambhara Prajna. In order to understand its nature and attain it, Divine Sciences have been designed. The spiritual philosophy of Divine Sciences helps evolve one’s Ritambhara Prajna. There is nothing more sacred than Ritambhara Prajna. Lord Krishna calls it righteous knowledge. With its grace one’s divine eye opens. These divine eyes help us attain self-realization, God realization and spiritual vision. All this is a grace of Ritambhara Prajna.

One may attain material comforts via a cunning intellect or one can be the centre of attraction too. Despite all this for soul progress one requires good-will, oneness of heart and gentlemanly behaviour both within and without (i.e. sacred sentiments). Ritambhara Prajna is that centre which manifests farsighted discrimination (Viveka). The more one attains it, the more one becomes a saint, gentleman, Rishi, Maharshi, Rajarshi, Devarshi etc. A material intellect achieves material wealth. A spiritual intellect achieves soul forces and glories. This spiritual intellect/vision is called Ritambhara Prajna. It glorifies our life and leads us towards supreme fulfillment.

The Lord’s supreme blessing is Ritambhara Prajna (divine intellect). It wards off our bondage to this material world. Savita’s light is called Ritambhara Prajna which is like sunrise that wards off the darkness of night. As soon as Prajna manifests, man’s desires, thinking and actions undergo a gigantic transformation. It now no longer rots in the mire of lowly desires and vile thinking and instead leads a sacred life of great thinking.

Such great men cannot be affected by what others are doing. Instead they harbour only compassion for the common man whose life is akin to one who is under the influence of alcohol. Great men yearn to uplift such deluded beings. Despite this great saints never force anyone to accept their philosophy of life. Ritambhara Prajna (divine intellect) of saints helps them to compassionately and patiently cut off the bondages of the material world.

Great saints listen only to righteousness and the Lord Himself. He who wears the armour of Ritambhara Prajna attains true glory and are honoured as saints in every corner of the world.

Great thinking gives us the wisdom of utility of material objects and good intention of all creatures. Thus they change their way of transacting with them and surmise the situation in a gist. This sort of thinking is heaven. Desires and egoistic behaviour induces fear in mankind. When it is overcome, one’s mind is full of steadfastness, divine intellect and faith. Thus peace and contentment take over. Jeevan Mukti (or liberation in life) means warding off lowly desires and imbibing sacred ideals. It is only after one achieves this state that one attains soul realization, God realization and Existence – Consciousness –Bliss.

Gayatri worship helps us attain Ritambhara Prajna. In other words a person having this Prajna attains the vision of Gayatri. Thus both Gayatri and Ritambhara Prajna complement one another. One of them cannot exist without the other. Those who are truly blessed by Gayatri have a direct vision of the light of divine aura called Ritambhara Prajna. In comparison to common men they are higher up the ladder of life due to their great thinking.


The visible Ganges river and the invisible Gayatri are similar. One stream of Gayatri is called Mandakini. Bathing in the Ganges purifies us and our sins are destroyed. Gayatri purifies our psyche. We can ward off our mental taints and distortions like greed, avarice, envy etc. Ganges and Gayatri were born on the same day. Both of them are the gross and subtle symbols of one goal.

Due to Bhagiratha’s penance, Ganges manifested on earth. Brahmaji too had to make gigantic efforts for the manifestation of Gayatri. In order to attain Gayatri’s grace in this human life, one needs to execute intense austerities. Gayatri’s seer is Rishi Vishwamitra. Via penance he attained this glorious state. Vishwamitra had given the responsibility of manifesting Gayatri in the hands of Lord Rama and Lakshmana. Vishwamitra taught them certain Spiritual Sciences and thus both brothers became powerful. This science called Bala and Atibala are other names of Gayatri and Savita.

The river Ganges purifies our body and Gayatri our soul. Ganges sanctifies the dead and Gayatri those who are alive. Ganga washes off our sins and Gayatri destroys our very intention of sinning. The shores of the Ganges is very conducive for Gayatri Meditation and worship. Their confluence is as meritorious as the confluence of the rivers Ganges and Yamuna. The Saptarshis (7 Rishis) had chosen the shore of Ganges so as to attain spiritual power via Gayatri Meditation. Thus one hand of Gayatri has a water pot that contains Ganges water that is like immortal nectar. Those individuals who wish to perform high leveled Gayatri Meditation generally opt for the shores of the river Ganges.

In great stories of various saints there is a description Saint Raidas and the river Ganges. Anasuya had manifested the river Mandakini near Chitrakuta (U. P., India). Gayatri worship helps one’s psyche attain the purity of holy rivers. As a result purity or divine intellect manifest.

Amongst many streams of Gayatri, one of them is Mandakini. When one seeks its shelter one’s sins are destroyed and thus purity of thought, word and deed manifests.


A state is attained due to Gayatri spiritual practices wherein a give and take relationship between the individual soul and cosmic soul (God) is established. This divine union gives us untold benefits. This state is called Ajapa.

Ajapa Gayatri involves various spiritual practices, one of which is called Yoga of Hansa. Gayatri’s vehicle is Hansa (swan). Yoga of Hansa involves chanting of “So Ham” i.e. I am That (God). The word Gayatri means protection of our vital force, “Gay” means vital force and “Tri” means protector. Via Pranayam (Yogic breathing exercises) a special vital force manifests. Gayatri spiritual practices include 24 Pranayamas. Amongst them “Soham” spiritual practices were given more importance. This Soham’s vital force continues working on its own ceaselessly. In ordinary beings will power, thought power and bodily tasks are executed. In Soham, all these tasks are carried out by the soul. There is hence no need of the body and mind.

When we inhale air a “So” type of sound manifests. When we exhale air “Ham” sound manifest. Of course! All these sounds are very soft and subtle. Our gross ears cannot grasp this sound. In fact it can only be heard when one is in deep meditation. When a quiet mind is focused, the inhaled air makes the sound “So” and the exhaled air makes the sound “Ham”. On hearing Lord Krishna’s holy flute, Gopies experienced divine ecstasy. Similarly when a spiritual seeker hears the “Soham” sound in deep meditation, he experiences divine bliss.

Various scriptures have described Brahmanaad (divine sound). A superficial description of it says that Yoga of sound is listening to spiritual discourses along with a devotional psyche. As against this in higher stages of spiritual practices, hearing of “Soham” is the ultimate goal of one’s spiritual practices. Great Yogis call it Anahat.

Gayatri has fundamentally manifested from Omkar (Om). It then expanded into the 24 letters of Gayatri. Thus the seed of divine sound is “Soham”. While performing Yoga of Divine Sound practices one hears subtle sounds like a bell, thundering of clouds, flute, drums etc. These divine sounds manifest from the very deep recesses of Mother Nature. When one attains the capacity to hear these divine sounds, all its mysteries unfold. A spiritual seeker attains subtle wisdom with the help of which he understands the movements of the gross and subtle worlds.

Ordinary spiritual practices are carried out with the help of the body and mind. As against this Ajapa Gayatri practices are related to the soul. Thus one’s spiritual practices continue on their own. Ajapa is a spiritual practice that has its own energy. Soham is one such spiritual practice that involves deep meditation. When it conjoins to the soul, a cyclic movement commences in a ceaseless manner that generates energy. With the help of this energy a spiritual seeker attains divine wisdom or soul wisdom. This wisdom is then utilized for world welfare.

The Hansa (swan) of Ajapa spiritual practices is Gayatri’s vehicle. When one worships it, one’s Viveka (discrimination) is activated. A person is called a Rajhansa (royal swan) when he imbibes sacred ideals in his thinking and activities. He then rises higher and is called Paramhansa (Supreme Swan). Gayatri’s Ajapa energy helps one attain this supreme divine state.


What is the glory, importance and results of Gayatri Super Power? This answer can be found by examining the weapons present in the hands of Gayatri’s deities. Deities (both male and female) are special flows of Gayatri Super Power.

One of the 24 deities of Gayatri is called Ganesha. Ganesha or Viveka is the god of intellect. Whenever our compassionate farsighted intellect augments, know for sure that Ganesh is present. The root of Gayatri Mantra is sacred knowledge. Ganesha is Gayatri’s leading energy stream.

Ganesha dwells with 2 divine female friends. One is called Ridhi and the other is Sidhi. Ridhi means spiritual glory and Sidhi means material power and wealth. Just as Gayatri and Savitri are said to be consorts of Brahmaji (creator) so too Ridhi-Sidhi are Ganesha’s consorts. The Almighty Lord’s 2 wives are Para and Apara Prakriti. With their help all movements in this world of matter and energy take place. While deciding upon the nature of Ganesha who is discrimination, spiritual seers depicted him as having 2 wives. An intellect of discrimination (Viveka) is most required for spiritual and material progress. This principle is called Ganesha and his consorts are called Ridhi and Sidhi.

Ridhi means self-knowledge, soul force, soul purification, self-contentment, inner zest, self-unfoldment, good qualities and spiritual grandeur. Sidhi means skill, enthusiasm, cooperation, wealth, knowledge, power and material grandeur. All these qualities are found in Gayatri and Savitri. Both are a couple. Whenever Ridhi dwells, there lies Sidhi. Both of them fan Ganesha. A man of discrimination attains both material and spiritual wealth. This is the reason why one sees Ganesha's photograph with his 2 wives Ridhi and Sidhi.

Ganesha holds a chain in one hand and Modak (sweet meat) in another hand. Chain means discipline and Modak means joy. Those who lead disciplined lives attain joy too. Ganesha gives you both Ridhi and Sidhi. Ridhi means soul glory and Sidhi means material power. When one adheres to the rules of life and thus leads a disciplined life, one becomes powerful both materially and spiritually. He faces no obstruction while procuring material comforts. Great personalities are full of laughter and joy and hence it is compared to the Modak of Ganesha. They themselves experience bliss and spread the same in the entire world. The magnetic personality of such great men attracts forces from the visible and invisible worlds. This is very much required for their own progress and joy.

A deep misunderstanding prevails as far as Ridhi-Sidhi is concerned. People wrongly believe Ridhi-Sidhi to be the art of performing magical acts. They wrongly correlate Ridhi-Sidhi to magical acts like man flying in air, walking on water, becoming invisible, changing forms, attracting objects towards oneself or inducing their disappearance etc. In fact all these are but superficial magical acts. It is like magicians using means like hypnotism, mesmerism etc. to perform magical shows. Their aim is just to show off their magical skills or ensnare gullible people in their trap. All this sort of vain show has been strictly prohibited by all great spiritual texts of the world. These scriptures advise us to ignore these magical power as and when they manifest in us. In short such superficial acts of magic have no connection with pure Spiritual Sciences.

True Ridhi helps a spiritual seeker attain contentment, faith and divine grace via high thinking. Thus a human being becomes divine. Such divine men positively influence the entire world and induce world humanity to imbibe sound ideals in thought, word and deed. True Sidhi lies in attaining material gains and sharing the same with the entire world. After looking after one’s own needs and those of one’s family members, the rest should be used for the material and spiritual upliftment of the world. This indeed is a true miracle. The more one marches ahead on this path, the greater he becomes and thus is called a Sidha (saint).

Gayatri has 2 names viz; Ridhi and Sidhi. Those who are pious in thought, word and deed attain both Ridhi and Sidhi. Thus they are glorified in the true sense. True Gayatri worship naturally results in attainment of Ridhi-Sidhi. Gayatri is a visible Sidhi. Those who imbibe Gayatri attain Ridhi (spiritual powers) and Sidhi (material powers).
