Introduction to Gayatri … Continued from the previous issue
The Vaktathva (speech principle), which is in a hidden form of cosmic music, has been given expression by Goddess Saraswathi with great love to humanity. Whenever the knowledgeable wise man, with his alert mind, purifies his speech with pure thoughts, then his friends understand what true friendship is.
The wise man understands Vakthatva – the secret of the principle of speech – through yagna. The Principle (Paravak), established in the Rishi as Pashyanthi vak, was secured by wise men as Madhyama vak, and the latter spread to different places through Vaikhari.
The sound-oriented speech principle is surrounded by various meters like Gayatri. Those who do not have the strength to understand the speech principle (Vaktathva) will not be able to see the content of it, even if they look at it. In the case of some others, even when they hear, the benefit of hearing will not occur to them. But those who are capable of understanding the speech principle will be enlightened by Goddess Saraswathi by showing to them her real form. Such a learned person who is a friend of Veda mantras should not be dismissed by anyone.
