The Gayatri Mantra derives it’s power/Shakti from the fact that it is comprised of 24 Beej Mantra. Each Beej invokes each of the of 24 Deities specifically.                                  EffectofGayatriMantraonthebody_thumb

What is beej mantra? A seed when sown grows into a fruitful tree, like that Beej Mantra… (which carries a vibration invoking of shakti and energy in a certain frequency and wavelength). There are Various Beej Mantras which are an important part of Mantras and each Beej mantra has its own power and when mixed with mantras adds extra power to the traits of that mantra. (Source:

These Beej are the essences of these Deities, so when the Beej are chanted orally or mentally, all of the 24 Deities are invoked. This is the reason it is considered the Mahaa Mantra of All Mantra.

In addition to the Essences of Mantra and Beej of the Deities listed below, there are also 70 Million “Supreme Mantra” in the Gayatri Mantra :

10 Million are attributed to Lord Shiv,

20 Million to The Sun,

5 Million to Lord Ganesh,

5 Million to Lord Vishnu, and

30 Million Mantra are attributed to Divine Mother — more than the number attributed to any other Deities.

The Gayatri Mantra is the Essence of These 70 million Supreme Mantra, (along with the Essences of Mantras of the Other Beej)

Each of these Beej has a (1) Sage, (2) Chhand, (3) Devtaa, (4) Shakti, and (5) Color.

When You chant the Mantra, these Beej work on a specific “Granthi” – center-knot-Naadee. (from “Sri Gayatri – Volumes 1, 2 , and 3″ by Sri Karunamayi Devi)

Exaltations of Gayatri Mantra


Rabindranath Tagore: It is the Gayatri Mantra which has awakened India and which is so simple as can be chanted in one breath, There can be no scope for any logical discussion, difference of opinion or any dispute in the study of this holy Mantra.
Maharshi Vyas: Just as honey is the essence of flowers, Ghee is the essence of milk, so Gayatri is also the essence of Vedas. Gayatri is a Kamdhenu (celestial cow) to him who has accomplished it in full.

Mahatma Gandhi: Constant chanting of Gayatri Mantra is very useful in healing the diseased and elevating the soul. Gayatri Japa is practised with a steady mind and pure heart is capable of removing obstacles and calamities during bad times.

Shri Madanmohan Malavia: Of all the valuables jewels bequeathed to us by our ancient sages, Gayatri Mantra holds an incomparable place. Gayatri purifies intellect and attracts divine light. It has saved several souls from worldly bondage, It removes materials wants.

Swami Vivekanand: Only that thing should be asked for from a king which befits his dignity. The only thing fit to pray from God is wisdom. God grants wisdom only to those with whom he is pleased. Wisdom makes a man go on the right path. Man gets all sorts of happiness by Sat karmas. Gayatri Mantra is a Mantra for wisdom and hence it is called the crown of all Mantra.–the-spiritual-sun-savita-devata/gayatri-mantra-vigyan
