The Meaning of Gayatri Mantra:

Rishis have selected the words of various Mantras and arranged them in

such a way that they, not only convey some meaning but their utterance also

creates specific power. Gayatri is a Mantra which inspires righteous wisdom.

Its meaning is that the Almighty God may illuminate our intellect which may

lead us to righteous path. This is most important teaching. All the problems

of a person are solved if he/she is endowed with the gift of righteous wisdom.

Having endowed with far-sighted wisdom, a man is neither entangled in calamity

nor does he tread a wrong path. A wise man finds solution of all outstanding

problems. Only those persons find difficulty who do not know thinking correctly

and take wrong steps on account of foolishness. The worship of Gayatri Mantra

removes this deficiency. The teachings of and the powers incorporated in

Gayatri Mantra fullfil this purpose. Righteous wisdom starts emerging no sooner

Jap(recitation) of this Mantra is performed.
