What is it?
-----------
Gayatri Mantra is a chant, which encourages the human who is chanting it to recognize that:
(1) there is this energy that is present everywhere in everything and everyone — including inside one's own self,
(2) everyone —including oneself— should try channeling all this energy to gain pure enlightened intelligence, and
(3) one is and always will be a part of this powerful energy and should therefore attempt to make best use of it.



In Sanskrit (Devanagari) - Short version:
-----------------------------------------
Om bhur bhuvaH svaH, tat savitur varenyaM, bhargo devasya dhImahi, dhIyo yo naH prachodayAt.
ॐ भूर्भुवः॒ स्वः । तत्स॑वितुर्वरे॑ण्यं । भ॒र्गो॑ दे॒वस्य॑ धीमहि । धियो॒ यो नः॑ प्रचो॒दया॑त् ।

*Notes:
-------
At a cosmic level, 'ether' is the state of creative generation (janaH) between energy and tangible matter.
Cosmic creation happens when 'energy' passes through this intermediate 'ether' state to generate (janaH) 'matter'.
Scientific basis: Similar to Einstein's: E = mc2, where E is energy, m is mass(matter), and c is the speed of light.
At a human level, 'ether' is the state of creative generation (janaH) between human energy (efforts/mind/ideas) and human creations (symbols/voice/matter).
