Gayatri Mantra is also known as “Savitri Mantra”, which is a universal prayer used by the followers of Hindu religion since 1800. The Mantra is used mainly to please and secur the blessings of Sun God.

The Gayatri Mantra has five faces. They are the five life principles. It consists of the following:

  • OM- The Primeval Sound
  • Bhur- The physical Body
  • Bhuvah- The Lifeforce
  • Suvah- The soul
  • Tat- God
  • Savitur- The Sun
  • Varenyam- Adore
  • Bhargo- Divine Light
  • Devasya- Supreme Lord
  • Dhimahi- Meditate
  • Dhiyo- The Intellect
  • Yo- May this light
  • Nah- Our
  • Prachodayat- Inspire


The Gayatri may be considered as having three parts;


1) Adoration
2) Meditation
3) Prayer

Gayatri is considered as the essence of the Vedas. Veda means knowledge, and this prayer fosters and sharpens the knowledge. As a matter of fact, the four core-declarations enshrined in the four Vedas are implied in this Gayatri Mantra.

Gayatri is the mother of all Vedas. She is very powerful. The one who nourishes the individual being is Gayatri. She bestows pure thoughts on anyone who worships her. Gayatri, however, has three names:


1) Gayatri
2) Savitri
3) Saraswathi

These three are present in everyone. Gayatri represents the senses. Savitri is the Master of Prana. Saraswathy is the presiding deity of speech. In the religious view, it is preferable to read Gayatri Mantras during the satvik period (4 AM to 8 AM and 4 PM to 8 PM).
