Anandamurti starts the discourse by saying that in the Vaedic initiation the spiritual aspirant asks the Lord to show him/her the proper path. Anandamurti then explains that Gayattrii is a rhythm and not a mantra. The three requirements in the composition of a Gayattrii Mantra are: a rhythm of three lines and eight syllables, addressing a particular name of God and that it is composed by a Seer. Anandamurti goes on explaining a particular Mantra of a Gayattrii rhythm: Tat Savitur vareńyam; / Bhargo devasya dhiimahi dhiyo yo nah pracodayát. Oṋḿ bhúr bhuvah svah oṋḿ.
