Description of work

oṃ bhūr bhuvaḥ svaḥ
tát savitúr váreniyaṃ
bhárgo devásya dhīmahi
dhíyo yó naḥ pracodáyāt

“O Divine mother may your pure divine light illuminate all realms (physical, mental and spiritual) of our being. Please expel any darkness from our hearts and bestow upon us the true knowledge.”

The Gayatri Mantra is a Sanskrit mantra that has been chanted for thousands of years. It was written down during the Vedic period (1500-500 BCE) and is one of the oldest known and most powerful mantras. It is said to contain all the knowledge of the universe. The mantra is an expression of gratitude and praise to the powers of transformation, inner growth, and self-realization provided by the radiant light of the divine.

More than 20 years ago she met her spiritual teacher Sri Kaleshwar from India for the first time, who was giving a lecture in Germany at the time. From then on, she attended some of his seminars in Germany and Switzerland and got to know Bhajan singing. The songs immediately touched her heart. And although she didn't understand the words, she noticed that the sounds carry a great power.
