The Gāyatrī Mantra

The Gāyatrī Mantra is a highly revered mantra, based on a Vedic Sanskrit verse from a hymn of the Rigveda (3.62.10), attributed to the rishi Viśvāmitra. The mantra is named for its vedic gāyatrī metre.[1] As the verse invokes the deva Savitr, it is also called Sāvitrī.[2] Its recitation is traditionally preceded by o, and the formula bhūr bhuvaḥ svaḥ, known as the mahāvyāhṛti ("great utterance").
