Gayatri Mantras
Compiled by P. R. Ramachander*

[Gayatri Mantras are very powerful meditation aids to pray for the grace of a particular God. Gayatri (गायत्री) is the feminine form of gāyatra, a Sanskrit word for a song or a hymn. It may refer to a mantra in particular (attributed to Vishwamitra - goddess as its personification - represents Parabrahman) or the name of a Vedic poetic meter of 24 syllables (three lines of eight syllables each) or any hymn composed in this meter.]
