The Foundation of Indian Culture
Several concepts are prevalent in the Hindu
religion and there are controversies and
conflicting opinions also in respect of some
of them. But all the sects, saints and rishis
have accepted the pre-eminence of Gayatri
mantra with one voice.

Rishi Vashishtha says persons who are
dull, way-ward and fickle-minded become
highly intelligent and steadfast and rise to
great heights in worldly and spiritual
pursuits by Gayatri Sadhana. Those who
worship Gayatri steadfastly and piously
attain self-realisation.
Paeans in Praise of Gayatri
Shri Rama Krishna Paramhamsa stated I
tell people that it is not necessary to get
engaged in complicated Sadhanas. Perform
simple Gayatri Sadhana and see the results.
Great Siddhis are attained by Gayatri
Sadhana. This Mantra is short, no doubt, but
it is extremely powerful..
Paeans in Praise of Gayatri
Vivekanand said, only that thing should be
begged from a king which befits his dignity.
Spiritual wisdom alone is the most suitable
gift which could be asked from God. God
grants spiritual wisdom which leads to
advancement on the right path and results in
our happiness. One who is advancing
towards the truth always remains happy.
Gayatri mantra is instinct with spiritual
wisdom and, therefore, it has been
acclaimed the greatest of all the mantras.
Paeans in Praise of Gayatri
According to Mahatma Gandhi, constant
Jap of Gayatri Mantra is useful for curing
physical ailments and for the upliftement of
the soul. Gayatri Jap performed with a calm,
unperturbed mind has the power of averting
crisis in the hour of distress.
