A hymn from the Ṛg Veda that also consists of the prefix from the Yajur Veda. It is in the meter of Gāyatrī, and it has 3 padas of 8 syllables, plus the prefix. It is chanted to help us discover clarity and guidance and to help us overcome our primordial ignorance of who we really are (avidyā), which is the root of all our suffering and afflictions.
May there be peace on the mortal, immortal and divine plains. I meditate on the brilliant splendor of the Sun. May he stimulate our intellect (so that we are inspired to take the right action at the right time).
