Savitr Rk is a discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti on 1978 September 2 in Patna, India. This discourse is the 31st chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 1.[1]

Synopsis

Every entity is effulgent because of Him. He brings about the recreation of His progeny. All cometh from Him and goeth unto Him. Why do we meditate on Him? So that He may guide our intellect on the right path.

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

Anandamurti starts the discourse by explaining a shloka from the RK Veda which means "Oh Lord, guide my thoughts in a proper way so that my life becomes meaningful and blissful". He then explains that the correct name for the prayer is Savitr Rk and not Gayatri Mantra. The Rk Veda is divided into sections called mańd́ala. The mańd́alas are divided into súktas, and the súktas are divided into rks. This Savitr Rk (the rk for Savitá) is composed in Gayatri rhythm. Anandamurti goes on saying that Savitá means father; and A-U-M means creation, preservation and destruction. One should meditate on the Supreme Father so that He guides one's intellect unto the path of effulgence.[1]
