Gayatri Mantra:

The Gayatri Mantra is considered the highest mantra of the Vedas (ancient Hindu sciptures).  In the article Gayatri Mantra MP3 Download, you will find a free downloadable MP3 of the mantra as well as some free videos of the Gayatri Mantra chants.  In addition, the Third Eye meditation I demonstrate and detail for you below, is also summarized in that article.

Here is the mantra used in the meditation and the translation:

Gayatri Mantra

Om Bhur Buvaha Svaha
Tat Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi
Dhiyo Yonaha Prachodayath

Gayatri Mantra English Translation

O Supreme Creator, Thou art the giver of life, the remover of pain and sorrow and the bestower of happiness; O Creator of the Universe, may we receive Thy supreme sin-destroying light; may Thou guide our intellect in the right direction.


Opening the Third Eye Chakra:

In this meditation, as I mentioned, I will be using the Gayatri Mantra to open the Third Eye Chakra.  The Third Eye or Ajna Chakra is often considered the most important chakra, as it is the seat of intuition and wisdom.   Thus opening this chakra point, gives you access to inner guidance, and communication with your Higher Self.  This connection then allows you to know how best to proceed in your spiritual evolution.

For those interested in Psychic Abilities, opening the Third Eye is also the preferred path for the acquisition of such powers.  If you are indeed interested in psychic powers, you will want to read the following guide:  Free Psychic and Clairvoyant Powers and Abilities Development Guide.

For more information on the Third Eye and the Chakra system, please read: Kundalini Yoga Seven Chakra System Overview.

Below you will find full details of this meditation including benefits, step-by-step instructions, cautions, etc.

Benefits of Gayatri Mantra Meditation:

  2. Increases intuitive abilities and psychic powers.

  5. Builds concentration and mental focus.


How to Open Third Eye with Gayatri Mantra Meditation:

Below are the step-by-step instructions on how to do this meditation in order to open the Third Eye Chakra.  These steps are also demonstrated in the meditation video.

  • Sit in any cross legged posture.  You can also do this meditation sitting on a chair.
  • Elongate your spine and tuck your chin in slightly (like a soldier at attention).  Bring your hands in Gyan mudra, which is to have the thumb tips and index finger meeting.  Then, rest your wrists gently on your knees, with your palms facing slightly upwards.
  • Close your eyes and turn them upwards such that you looking through the center of the forehead.  This is Shambhavi mudra, and only hold it for as long as is comfortable.  Release it whenever necessary and continue with the meditation, reapplying it when ready.
  • Next begin to mentally chant the Gayatri Mantra, while visualizing it emanating out from the Third Eye Chakra Point.
  • Continue to chant the mantra silently for the duration of the meditation in this way.  You can do this meditation for as long as you like.  Start with 3 minutes and build up from there.

    Dear Sangeeta,

    First I suggest using the Chakra Model as a guide to help you evolve spiritually, instead of a literal system.

    Yes it can happen that certain chakras/aspects are underdeveloped while others are fully open and balanced. So in your case although your intuitive nature is well developed, other more earthly aspects need work.

    I have been meditating under my gurus direction for 4years now and he opened my 3rd eye ,I do kriya yoga. Recently just for the heck of it , i did an online test for chakras and it was found that the muladhara and manipura were weak . My question is how can the two most imp chakras be weak and the 3rd eye open up . I have had my Guru give me the Aum samaadhi as well . I have seen a bright yellow light at the manipura not now but 2 years ago . Some thing doesn’t add up . Can you please explain .
