ye trisaptah pariyanti visva rupani bibhratah vachaspati balah tesam tanvo adya dadhatu me

1. Mantra

ये त्रिषप्ताः परियन्ति विश्वा रूपाणि बिभ्रतः।

वाचस्पतिर्बला तेषां तन्वो अद्य दधातु मे ॥

ye trisaptah pariyanti visva rupani bibhratah

vachaspati balah tesam tanvo adya dadhatu me


Meaning

May God bless me with the complete understanding of the essences, names, forms, powers, functions, and relationships of everything, right here and now.


Message

Just as our teachers help us learn new things and solve our problems, God gives us the wisdom to understand ourselves and the world around us better.

 

ihaivaabhi vi tanubhe artni iva   jyaya vacaspati ni yachchhatu mayyevastu mayi shrutam

2. Mantra

इहैवाभि वि तनूभे आर्त्नी इव ज्यया।

वाचस्पतिर्नि यच्छतु मय्येवास्तु मयि श्रुतम् ॥

ihaivaabhi vi tanubhe artni iva

jyaya vacaspati ni yachchhatu mayyevastu mayi shrutam


Meaning

This Atharva Veda mantra teaches that both the teacher and the student should enjoy the experience of learning and teaching. Much like how a perfectly stretched bowstring connects both ends of a bow, knowledge connects the teacher and the student. May God guide us on this journey, and let everything I hear and learn stay with me.


Message

We should pray to God to bless us with teachers who enjoy teaching as much as we enjoy learning. May everything we learn stay with us forever.

divyo gandharvo bhuvanasya yaspati reka eva namasyo vikshvidyah

tam tva yaumi brahmana divya deva namaste astu divi te sadhastam


Meaning

This Atharva veda mantra says that God is the one who controls the stars, planets, and everything in space. He is also the source of all knowledge and goodness. This supreme and kind Lord, Parameshvara, deserves our love and respect. We reach out to Him through the teachings of the Vedas. By completely trusting and honouring Him, we can feel His bright presence in our hearts and in the universe.


Message

We are amazed by how our favourite superheroes can stop the rain, change the speed of planets, and crush asteroids. But did you know that God is the true superhero who controls everything in the universe? He guides the motion of planets, makes the stars shine, directs the flow of rivers, and so much more. God is the most powerful making Him the ultimate superhero.
