Gayatri Mantra as written in Sanskrit Devanagari Script


Mantras are mystical arrangements of sacred sounds that were originally discovered by sages while deep in meditation. Recorded in the vedas, India’s oldest and most revered spiritual texts, mantras were written in Sanskrit, considered the oldest language on the planet and referred to as "the language of the Gods."

Mantras have the ability to move energies, creating profound change within the practitioner and the environment at large. The word “mantra” means “that which saves you when meditated upon.” For thousands of years in India, people on a conscious spiritual path have chanted mantras in order to create positive conditions both inwardly and outwardly, thereby shifting energies and conditions.  Mantras are chanted in their original language of Sanskrit since it is these special sound vibrations that create a powerful forcefield and cause transformation.

Typically mantras were passed down in India among priests through special initiation ceremonies as the material was considered sacred.  Today these ancient mantras are being shared discreetly with sincere seekers by Psychic Palmist of India Professor Sasi Velupillai and Reiki Master Alexandra Juliani who teach and initiate practitioners according to traditional vedic methods, based on their extensive studies with Hindu priests and revered spiritual elders in India.


The Vedic Healing Institute & Temple offers a comprehensive program in Sanskrit mantras in which students learn how to chant and apply these sacred sounds to their lives in a thorough and practical manner, in accordance with the vedic principles. Professor Sasi and Reiki Master Alexandra personally instruct and initiate each student into the mantras in traditional vedic initiation ceremonies.

The goal of the classes is for students to use the mantras to enhance their spiritual growth and increase the flow of positive energy, becoming empowered to manifest their dreams and progress on their journey through life. Many of the methods taught in the curriculum have never been shared outside of India until now.


The vedic initiation ceremonies form an integral part of the classes since it is through these rituals that the mantras become adequately conveyed and activated in the student's energy field. One may become familiar with a mantra through a book or a recording but the actual power of the mantra takes root in one's being and life when the initiation is given. Through the initiation, students also connect with the lineage of the original masters who discovered the mantras thousands of years ago.

Working with Sanskrit mantras ultimately provides expansion and growth, creating a deep inner awareness of who we are as spiritual beings, why we are here, and how we may best live our paths.

Professor Sasi and Ms. Juliani regard their work in teaching and initiating others into Sanskrit mantras and the vedic healing principles to be a calling, a great joy,  and a privilege. To that end, the mantras and vedic teachings are lovingly imparted with blessings for each student's growth and spiritual progress. 



( *The Gayatri Mantra Class is the first class in our mantra series and forms the basis for all of the Vedic Healing Institute & Temple's activities).

Gayatri Mantra is the key to opening the door of cosmic consciousness. Gayatri mantra creates illumination, awakens inner powers, and brings blessings. Gayatri mantra makes the practitioner "brighter" and more able to manifest his/her personal path.

The Gayatri Mantra is considered to be the most powerful Sanskrit chant, balancing mind, body and spirit simultaneously. It is a chant that evokes magical, mystical energies and helps those chanting it accelerate on their spiritual journey. The Gayatri mantra clears negative energies and purifies our beings, making us more powerful and illuminated. Gayatri mantra works with feminine energies so that we open to receive blessings.

In India it is said that you are born twice--once when you enter the body and once when you are initiated into Gayatri, the Queen of all mantras.

Benefits of chanting Gayatri Mantra:
• Attain higher spiritual awareness, clarity and inspiration;
• Raise your vibration to attract prosperity and blessings;
• Awaken intuitive, psychic powers;
• Sharpen your ability to manifest desires and needs;
• Increase your prana or life-force energy and personal charisma;
• Help you achieve greater health, balance, wellbeing, and inner peace;
• Create a powerful, positive force-field offering protection from negativity

( *The Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra Class is the second class in our mantra series and the companion chant to Gayatri).

Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra is a dynamic, powerful energy that lies at the core of the Vedas- India’s spiritual texts. Maha Mrityunjaya mantra works with Shiva (male) energies to create action, healing and movement; destroy negative influences; and to speed manifestation. Maha Mrityunjaya is the great mantra for overcoming fears, negative energy, and ultimately death, helping our souls transition to the next phase on the path.

The Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra is considered to be the "companion" chant to the Gayatri mantra. Whereas the Gayatri mantra opens the energy field and empowers the chanter through feminine energies, the Maha Mrityunjaya mantra moves energies through masculine energies, instigating new, positive conditions. Maha Mrityunjaya mantra is considered to be a healing mantra that awakens dormant abilities within the one chanting. Where Gayatri cleanses the system, Maha Mrityunjaya strengthens it. Maha Mrityunjaya works with masculine energies so that action on the physical plane may occur. For these reasons, Gayatri and Maha Mrityunjaya are often used in conjunction with one another to open the energy field, clear unfavorable conditions, and bring about powerful change, movement and awakening.

Benefits of chanting Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra:
• Remove obstacles in your life and destroy illusions
• Move energies on the inner and outer planes for manifestation
• Strengthen inner powers for healing and replace stagnant energy with new, vital energy
• Unleash enthusiasm, courage, willpower and determination
• Clear lack of energy, grief, illness, depression, and prevent accidents
• Raise your vibration to create prosperity and blessings
• Create fearlessness, hope, courage, inspiration, and action
• Move through the process death, and eventually get off the wheel of reincarnation

“Gayatri is a treasure you must guard throughout your life. You may give up or ignore any other mantra, but never give up Gayatri. It will protect you from harm, {and} the effulgence of God will descend on you and light your path.” --H.H. Sri Sathya Sai Baba

By chanting mantras one invokes a tremendous special force that transforms the inner being, producing noticable mental, emotional, physical and spiritual improvements.



Many people believe that to achieve peace we must retreat from society and live a solitary existence. Certainly living away from others allows us to be free from distraction, and peace may, therefore, be more readily attainable. However, for most people, living a life completely removed from others is impractical and not feasible. Thus, living in society provides us with what may be seen as a beautiful and perfect test of finding inner peace, for within chaos we find the opportunity to truly access and embody peace.

This class teaches a series of the most beautiful and dynamic Sanskrit mantras for personal and planetary peace. These techniques may be done alone or in conjunction with other mantras and methods. Wherever one finds oneself, chanting peace mantras will immediately call forth a sense of serenity and inner harmony that will in turn affect our surroundings and the entire planet.

Chanting peace mantras is beneficial to not only the practitioner but to the environment and the world at large. All students are urged to take this class as a dynamic and also gentle way to anchor in peace for this planet and beings everywhere.

Class includes : class manual; time spent learning the chants; sacred sound recordings; and vedic initiation into the mantras.

Duration: 3 hours
