Narada approached Lord Brahma and requested him,“Oh, God please teach me that knowledge of Brahman by which all sinscan be destroyed quickly and the wisdom of Brahman is realized and oneis blessed with all the wealth.” Lord Brahma told as follows: The onewho masters the mantras for which Lord Hayagreeva is the master wouldknow Sruthi (heard knowledge), Smrithi (memorized knowledge), Ithihasas(history) and Puranas (epics) and would be blessed with all types ofwealth. Those Mantras are as follows: 1.1 Hey, Lord Hayagreeva, who isthe form of the holy mind, who saves everybody and who is the King ofKnowledge, Salutations to you, Swaha, Swaha. 1.2 Hey , Lord Hayagreeva,who has the form of Rig, Yajur and Sama Vedas, who brought these Vedasto earth, who has the shape of the singing of Pranava, and who has ahorse head, Salutations to you, Swaha, Swaha. 1.3 Hey Lord Hayagreeva,who is being sung by the song of Pranava, who is the God for all thoseGods of words, who is the personification of all Vedas, and who isbeyond thought, teach us everything . Salutations to you, Swaha, Swaha.1.4 For the 29 lettered mantra of Hayagreeva, Brahma, Athri ,Surya andBhargava are the sages, Gayathri, Trushtup and Anushtup are the meters,God is Hayagreeva himself, root is the sound “Lhowm (hsowm), Strength(Shakthi) is Hoham, Keelaga (the nail) is Lhoom (Shoom), Viniyoga isBhoga, Moksha and the symbolic rite with hands is the letters Aa, Uuand Ma. The prayer is: I meditate on that Hayagreeva, Who has the glitter ofthe full moon, Who holds the conch, wheel, the great stamp and the bookin his hands.The 29 lettered Hayagreeva mantra is: Om Sreem, lhowm (Hsowm), Om NamoBhagawathe, Hayagreevaya, Vishnave, Mahyam, Medham, Pragnam, PrayaschaSwaha! 1.5 The 28 lettered Hayagreeva mantra is: Om, Sreem, Im, Im,Im , Kleem, Kleem, Sow, Sow, Hreem, Om Namo Bhagawathe, Mahyam, Medham Pragnam, Prayascha Swaha! 1.6 Second Chapter I will now tell you that‘Hayagreeva knowledge’ of Brahman which is of one letter. That is theroot letter Lhoum (hsoum). Among all the roots, this Hayagreeva singleletter root is the king of mantras. 2.1 Chanting of the mantra “Lhoum (hsoum) Amrutham Kuru Swaha!”, gives one the mastery over words, wealthand the eight occult powers. 2.2 The mantra “Lhoum (hsoum) SakalaSamrajya Sidhim Kuru Kuru Swaha” tells us the secret of the great Vedicsayings like “Pragnanam Anandam Brahma (Brahmam is the realized happiness)”, “Tat Tvam Asi (You are it)”, “Ayam Atma Brahma (My soul isBrahma)” and “Aham Brahmasmi (I am Brahmam)”. The same letter “Lhoum”and “hsoum” are the same vowels though different and give worldly pleasures and salvation respectively. 2.3 After the chanting ofHayagreeva Mantra, it is normal to chant the Vedic mantras starting  with 1.Yad Vak Vadanthi…. 2. Gowrimimaya… 3 Oshtapidhana and 4. SaSarpareeramathim…… 2.4-2.7 One who reads this ‘Hayagreeva knowledge’ of Brahmam on the Ekadasiday, would become a great man because of the blessings of Hayagreeva.He would get salvation. Upanishad says, the knowledge of Brahmam whichis taught with the mantra ending with 'Om Namo Brahmane’ would neverleave his heart . Om ! O Devas, may we hear with our ears what isauspicious; May we see with our eyes what is auspicious, O ye worthy ofworship ! May we enjoy the term of life allotted by the Devas, Praisingthem with our body and limbs steady ! May the glorious Indra bless us !May the all-knowing Sun bless us ! May Garuda, the thunderbolt forevil, bless us ! May Brihaspati grant us well-being! Om! Let there bePeace in me ! Let there be Peace in my environment ! Let there be Peacein the forces that act on me ! Here ends the Hayagrivopanishad, ascontained in the Atharva-Veda.
