The Āditya Gāyatrī mantra is a very powerful and potent way to activate the power and blessings of Sūrya-devatā, Lord Sun.
You can choose to listen or recite along. We invite you to take a steady and upright posture, comfortable and open. Take a few breaths and let your energy and attention settle. When you feel ready, press play and let these sacred sounds move through your entire being, whether you are listening or singing.
