Origin of Gayatri Mantra’s in Detail
According to ancient history, the Gayatri Mantra Lyrics in Sanskrit was first recorded in Rig Veda (iii, 62, 10), about 4000 years ago. The Vedas are widely considered to be the source of all true knowledge, the word “Veda” itself meaning “Knowledge”. Gayatri Devi also gave to mankind the “Gayatri Mantra”, also known as the “Guru Mantra” or the “Savitri Mantra”. It is one of the oldest mantras and generally thought of as being amongst the highest and most powerful mantras of all. This mantra is therefore often referred to as “the Mother of the Vedas”. In the Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna had proclaimed to Arjuna – “Among all the mantras, I am the Gayatri”. Gayatri Mantra is an exceptionally revered mantra in Hinduism, second just to the mantra Om
The rishis had chosen the words of the Gayatri Mantra very uniquely and arranged them in such a way that not only do they convey the meaning but also create a specific power of righteous wisdom through their utterance. The ideal times for chanting the Gayatri Mantra are three times a day – at dawn, mid-day, and at dusk. These times are known as the three sandhyas – morning, mid-day and evening. The maximum benefit of chanting the mantra is said to be obtained by chanting it 108 times. However, one may chant it for 3, 9, or 18 times when pressed for time. The syllables of the mantra are said to positively affect all the chakras or energy centres in the human body – hence, proper pronunciation and enunciation are very important.
