Nevada (US), June 16: Weeklong “Religious Leadership in an Interfaith World” seminar ended with “Gayatri Mantra”, the most sacred mantra of Hinduism, at Hartford Seminary (Connecticut, USA).

 Esteemed Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, who participated in the seminar, read the benediction in Sanskrit from Rig-Veda, Upanishads, and Bhagavad-Gita; all ancient Hindu scriptures; and then translated into English. Participants repeated the Gayatri Mantra after Zed.

Reading from Brahadaranyakopanishad, Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, said “Asato ma sad gamaya, Tamaso ma jyotir gamaya, Mrtyor mamrtam gamaya”, which he then translated as “Lead me from the unreal to the Real, Lead me from darkness to Light, and Lead me from death to Immortality.”
