Parents and teachers should initiate children and pupils into creed of the Gayatri verse of the Veda with its meaning.

It is as follow  :-

 ओउम् भूर्भुव: स्व: । तत्सवितुर्वरेण्यं भर्गो देवस्य धीमहि । धियो यो न: प्रचोदायत् ॥

Aum, Bhur, Bhuvah, Swah, tat Savitur varenyam bhargo devasya dhimahi, dhiyo yo nah prachodayat.

May we remember that amiable and sublime glory, the all wise Supreme Being, who is holy and of sanctifying nature, who is the producer of the whole world and the dispenser of all blessings, who is the giver of all comfort, and whose obtainment is desired by all the people. so that he who is the father and the innerself and guide of our intellects, may keep us off from evil actions and lead us on to good works !

 

we now briefly give the meanings of the three great mystic syllables, called the Vyahrities.

Bhuh is the name of God, signifying that life which is the support or the existence of all the worlds, which is self-existent and which is dearer than individual life.

– Bhuvah is a name of God, because the word means the one who is free from all suffering, and whose company emancipates others from it.

Swah is a name of God, because the word means the one who pervades all the diversity of the world, and who supports all the beings therein.

These three syallables are taken from the Tatteriya Arannyak.
