Payaswini is our revered cow. In heaven this cow is called Kamadhenu (wish fulfilling). In order to succeed in Gayatri worship one’s divine principle should augment. There is a lot of similarity as far as divinity and a cow’s close proximity is concerned. Panchamrit and Pancha Gavya are akin to nectar. Cow dung and urine can ward off many diseases. Indian farmers can never till land without the help of cows. Cow’s milk is said to be the most nourishing amongst all food items. A cow is extremely sacred. In the olden days when people understood the importance of Payaswini (cow), rivers of milk, clarified butter etc. flowed in India. This helped man live a divine life from the bodily and mental standpoint.

Kamadhenu (wish fulfilling cow) manifests in the psyche of a Gayatri devotee. Its energy gets transformed into sacred sentiments. As a result such a devotee never faces hardships and discontent. As soon as one desire is satiated, another crops up. Man’s desires are so infinite in number that even if all the wealth of the world is put at his disposal, it cannot satiate his desires. As against this if one harbors desires for world welfare, one’s inner zeal and zest overflows. This sort of thinking is compared to a Kalpavriksha (wish fulfilling tree) and is also called Kamadhenu.

Kamadhenu is an endeavour that is inspired by Mother Gayatri. It manifests as sacred aspirations which gives joy to a spiritual seeker just as a mother gives joy to its baby. It is called soul bliss or divine bliss. The goal of life is to attain the supreme satiation of self fulfillment. Gayatri’s high leveled blessing is of this variety. This grace of self fulfillment is attainment of Kamadhenu. A Gayatri devotee tastes the nectar of this divine benediction and thus succeeds in his spiritual practices.

Gayatri encompasses the 5 G’s viz. Gayatri, Ganga, Gai (Cow), Geeta and Govinda. Gayatri and Ganga were born on the same day. Serving cows is equivalent to a 3-fold confluence of rivers. Contact with cows in any fashion gives success in Gayatri Meditation.

Gayatri is called Kamadhenu (wish fulfilling cow). Kamadhenu and Payaswini are synonymous. In our scriptures Kamadhenu is said to be similar to a Kalpavriksha (wish fulfilling tree). Desires are so infinite in number that even Almighty God can never satisfy them. After a desire is fulfilled all that is achieved is called imagination.

Demi-gods are said to be devoid of desires. Aptakam is one who no longer harbours any desires. Purna means satiated and such aspirations are of a high stature. It is called good will. No problem is faced when one’s thinking is great based on sacred ideals. Good will can always be executed under all circumstances. A desireless person attains contentment, satiation and peace. The wish fulfilling tree called Kalpavriksha is in heaven. Demi-gods are desireless. The Kalpavriksha fulfills all our desires. All this means that divinity manifests in a psyche that harbours no desires. Demi-gods never face agitations due to discontent. A mind full of greed and avarice should be converted into good will for the entire world. The special quality of Kamadhenu and Kalpavriksha is that both fulfil our desires immediately. Gayatri too is a Kamdhenu and a Kalpavriksha. Those who drink its milk or sit under its cooling shade attain everything. When one’s desires are purified and one’s avarice is destroyed, man becomes supremely contented and peaceful. This is the result of Kamadhenu’s grace. There is a story that Guru Vashishtha had a cow called Nandini who was Kamadhenu’s daughter. He had fed king Vishwamitra and faced a war like situation. Seeing the miraculous activities of Nandini, Vishwamitra gave up his royal throne and set off in the jungles so as to perform penance. This Nandini and Kamadhenu are nothing but Gayatri.

Demi gods who drink Kamadhenu’s milk are said to be immortal. Ajar means devoid of old age. It is not possible for an old man to enjoy the pleasures of youth. This world is designed in such a way that one has to go through the vicious cycle of birth and death. After youth one has to face old age. When we talked about the good health and beauty attained by drinking Kamadhenu’s milk, it is not bodily and instead pertains to the mind and soul. When Kamadhenu blesses a Gayatri devotee, he always remain youthful at the mental level. He never lacks in zeal and zest. His mind is never distorted. His eyes always shine brightly, his face radiates a divine aura and his lips always smile. It is eternal youth and is also immortal in nature. This is a result of the blessing of Gayatri and Kamadhenu. A person who drinks Kamadhenu’s milk becomes immortal. A Gayatri devotee too becomes immortal. When we take up a human body, it will one day perish as per natural laws. If the ego perishes, one experiences the immortal nature of the soul. Hence a realized saint never fears death. His sacred actions are so full of sacred ideals that everyone follows in his footsteps. Thus such a saint attains eternal glory. Gayatri is therefore called Payaswini (cow) and Kamadhenu of earth.


Gayatri spiritual practices of the Dakshin Path is called Tripada or 3 –legged. The Vaam Path is called Tripura. Tripada encompasses Satyam , Shivam, Sundaram, Existence, Consciousness, Bliss, Heaven, Salvation and Divine Power. Tripura includes production, propagation, transformation, wealth, strength, skill, daring, zest, and enterprise. Tripada inspires soul based tasks and Tripura, material tasks. Yoga pertains to Tripada and Tantra pertains to Tripura.

Texts dealing with spiritual practices call Tripura Super Power as Tripura Sundari, Tripura Bhairavi etc. Many stories are related to it. More details have been given in Devi Bhagwat and Markendeya Purana. Its influence and application have been described in other books. The divine sports of Tripura Bhairavi include overcoming of hardships. Tripura Sundari gives success, good fortune and she is said to be a multifaceted beauty. Bhairavi removes all fear and Sundari blesses us with both spiritual and material joy.

There are many discourses that describe Tripura destroying demons like Mahishasur, MadhuKaitabh, Shumbh, Nishumbh, Vritrasura etc. Actually demons symbolize ignorance, lack, lethargy, indolence, downfall, defeat etc. Tripura’s 3-pronged weapon includes daring, zest and enterprise. The Tantra sect calls this 3 fold energy as Durga, Kali and Kundalini. They are also called Chandi, MahaShakti etc. In the form of Kaal Ratri, Maha Ratri and Moha Ratri they are worshipped with special rituals during Holi, Deepavali, and Mahashivratri. Tripada practices like Kriya Yog, Japa Yog, Havan Yog, and Tripura practices like Prana Yog, Hath Yog and Tantra Yog are executed. One is called Yogic practices and the other is called the presiding deity of austerities.

Tripada is Para (soul) and Tripura is Apara (material). A spiritual endevaour that includes both i.e. the inclusion of both vital force and body can help us live an apt life. In Brahmavarchas spiritual practices both complement one another. Its union is said to be the basis of radiance, brilliance, Ridhi, Sidhi, wisdom and grandeur. They are divine streams of Gayatri Super Power. Via spiritual practices we can imbibe it in our character.
