In Yoga, the mantra is a mystical formula, an incantation, which aids the individual to liberate the self and attain bliss and ultimate fulfillment.
Gayatri-The Highest Meditation describes the Gayatri, the mantra which helps the higher man to be born in us all. Sant Keshavadas profoundly tells the meaning and many facets (water rites, sitting posture, time, atmosphere, breath control, pronunciation of sacred sounds) of this ancient meditation.
There are few books available on the Gayatri meditation in English. Professor T K Venkateswaran of the Department of Religious Studies, University of Detroit, praises Sant Keshavadas work and states that if the Gayatri Mantra is understood, repeated, and meditated upon, in the manner in which it is presented in this book, it will illumine the intellect and produce the highest bliss, creativity, and success in the world.
