Gayatri Mantra is the first single by Dominika Dominiak recorded in 2012, culminating in a music video in 2015 having about 150,000 views on YouTube, recorded in the beautiful terrain of the Ślęza massif, showing the beautiful places of the Polish landscape important in the history of the Slavs. Gayatri Mantra is a great tribute to the energy of the Sun. Slavic culture has deep connections with the civilization of ancient India. This is evident from the similarities between the Sanskrit language and the ancient Polish speech. The Gayatri Mantra is a prayer to Savitur (the God figure who takes care of the Sun), emphasizing the meditation on his perfect light and asking for the enlightenment of the intellect. Vedic transmissions proclaim that Gayatri Mantra is the most powerful mantra that has the power to nullify karma. The literal translation of Gayatri Mantra is:
“Earth, Space, Sky is the Sun’s beloved (chosen) radiance (light) of God, let us contemplate (meditate) the thoughts that inspire us”.
There are many good translations of the meaning of the Gayatri Mantra that complement each other or include additional explanations. One typical translation is: “Behold, the Light we embrace (penetrate); All by the light of the heavens we are penetrated; By the light we strengthen everything”.
“Gayatri Mantra is one of my favorite mantras Listening to and chanting Gayatri Mantra releases that divine spark that includes love, joy, compassion and a sense of security (protection). These are priceless feelings in a time of desensitization and widespread aggression. Mantras have become a task for me that I could not skip or ognore in my life path. I want to share it with people because it has timeless and transcendental value.”

n the Slavic culture since ancient times the chanting of mantras has been practiced, and they were called AGMs – words of power, in which God incarnates. Slavic shamans, healers, and priestesses used the power of mantras to work with a person’s internal vibrations, which contain the power to change external reality. It has been scientifically researched that listening to mantras within a few minutes harmonizes two cerebral hemispheres achieving the alpha state of mind, and water crystals in our physical body, of which we have more than 70 percent, they take on a structural shape under the influence of harmonious vibration of mantras. Mantras are very helpful not only in meditation to achieve higher states of consciousness, but also in everyday life, quieting emotions, calming the mind and clearing negative thoughts, entering into inner harmony, feeling positive feelings like joy and love.
AGMs mainly consist of one, two or more rarely of three words. And do not try to understand them logically, because this one is beyond the understanding of the brain and works at the subconscious level. AGMs originate from a single ancient language, and are now found in the languages of ancient peoples such as the Huns, Indo-Aryans, Persians, Jews, Mongols, Chinese and other ancient cultures.
