Here is the significance of Gayatri mantra:

  • Gayatri Mantra is one of the most popular and beneficial Sanskrit mantras. It is also known as the Savitri mantra and is a highly revered mantra from the Rig Veda (ancient Indian collection of Vedic Sanskrit hymns) dedicated to Savitr, the Sun-deity. It is a prayer for compassion for the sake of liberation.
  • It is considered to have been divided into three parts: adoration, meditation and then finally the prayer. In the mantra, the divine is first praised, meditated upon and finally, the Good Lord is asked to awaken the intellect of a man.

  • Gayatri mantra is helpful in physical, emotional, and mental healing, purifying the karmas, protection from the onslaught of obstacles, and self-realization. It is a sacred chant that displays the unity that underlies manifoldness in creation.
  • The Atma (soul) is one, though the embodied forms in which it resides may be many. The Gayatri mantra is cited widely in Vedic and post-Vedic texts and classical Hindu texts such as the Bhagavad Gita, Harivamsa, and Manusmṛti.
  • Our soul or ‘atman’ is Shiva and our ‘buddhi’ or intellect, is the manifestation of Devi or Shakti; the divine mother. The intellect or core nature of a being can be divided into three parts Sattvik, Rajasik and Tamasik, which are ruled by Satoguna, Rajoguna or Tamoguna respectively. The life and karmas of an individual are greatly guided by our core nature, which then helps carve our destinies.
