    Gayathri is a metre of poem. There are also other metres. When there are Gayathri Mantras on almost all Hindu Gods, Why only Savithru Gayathri (on Sun God, I believe) is the most famous and accepted as 'Gayatri Mantra'?

    Sun is primarily important and it is worshiped in almost all parts of the Universe.
    rd Sun God directly and indirectly influences every aspect of our life. Besides it is very important to improve the condition of one's health. It facilitates to combat eye diseases so as to have proper and good eye sight. There is a saying in our Shastras that if this is chanted for 108 times in the morning before sunrise and in the evening similarly, for continuously 21 days or so, one can attain a mantra siddhi. Besides, if it is chanted on the day of Lunar Eclipe standing in the water upto waist or hip height , one can attain more power and divine bliss.

    Dear Sir,

    No doubt the Sun is also known by the name Savitr(meaning progenitor) but the Savitr in the Gayatri Mantra is as follows:


    Savitr...in the context of the Gayatri Mantra means "Immanent and Transcendent Divine which has been given the name Savita meaning that from which all is born"

    taken from Sathya Sai Speaks

    The reason being why this mantra alone is accepted as gayathri mantra is, when we search the entire Rig, Yajur ans Sama veda, same mantra is present in same meter, also the mantra aksharas are same. This the reason why maharishis accepted this mantra as gayatri mantra.

    There is also a secret behind the Adi Kavya Ramayana, which is for every thousand verses, the first verse commences with one letter of the Gayatri mantra. Tapah svadhyaya nirataam tapasvi vagvidam varam, naradam paripapracha valmikih muni pumgavam is the first verse.

    ‘Ta’ is the first letter. Tat savitur varenyam is how the Gayatri commences; and the next one thousand verses starts with the next letter of Gayatri. The twenty-four thousand verses of the Valmiki Ramayana have hiddenly, within them, at every thousandth verse, a letter of the Gayatri mantra. These verses are sometimes culled out separately as Gayatri Ramayana, and devotees recite it every day.

    This is a very interesting translation, first time I came across it. I like the one from I.K.Taimni:“We meditate upon the Divine Light of that adorable Sun of Spiritual Consciousness, which stimulates our power of spiritual perception;
    May It open our hearts and enlighten our Intellect.”
    The translation comes from the site Gayatri-mantra-download.com

    Can everyone say this mantra? I was told in my young age, you can only chant this after upanayanam. I heard the kanchi acharaya concurred this same becos it has significance after you hear from the sastrigal in the upanayanam function. Everything is available for everyone nowdays
