About Gayatri Mantra
The Gayatri Mantra, also known as the Savitri Mantra, is a highly revered mantra from the Rig Veda, dedicated to Savitri, the deity of five elements.
Gayatri is the name of the Goddess of the Vedic Mantra in which the verse is composed. Its recitation is traditionally preceded by om and the formula bhur bhuvah svah, known as the mahavyahrti, or “great (mystical) utterance”.
Maharshi Vishvamitra had created the Gayatri mantra. The Gayatri mantra is cited widely in Vedic and post-Vedic texts, such as the mantra listings of the Srauta liturgy, and classical Hindu texts such as the Bhagavad Gita, Harivamsa, and Manusmrti.
The mantra and its associated metric form was known by the Buddha, and in one sutra the Buddha is described as “expressing their appreciation” for the mantra. The mantra is an important part of the upanayana ceremony for young males in Hinduism, and has long been recited by dvija men as part of their daily rituals.
Modern Hindu reform movements spread the practice of the mantra to include women and all castes and its use is now very widespread.
