Gayatri is a mantra of the Pure Almighty Grace which is the Light and Energy of the divine. It is the mantra of Shuddha Shakti AUM, the Bargos of Savitri, the Consciousness force of the Lord of Light. The soul evolves towards Divine effulgence by doing the perfect Gayatri which consists of four feet along with the Vyahriti which is an efflorescence of AUM, the unique symbol and form and name of god.
Gayatri, the greatest and the most beautiful of all the ancient mantas, universally hailed as the mother of the Vedas that has been chanted from time immemorial, has acquired such an enormous mystical power and transcendental importance that it continues to remain even now as the mantra which has been universally accepted as capable of unfolding our spiritual faculties in the most remarkable manner.
It has been urged that Gayatri must be made the national Mantra of India. Just as the Asoka Chakra and the animals have become the national symbol of India, just as the magnificent lion has become our mighty national animal, and just at the beautiful peacock has become our brilliant national bird, so also should the Gayatri be adopted the national Mantra of India.
