    There is scientific explanation for Gayatri Mantra in the following website

    Gayatri Mantra

    எண்ணாயிரம் ஆண்டு யோகம் இருப்பினும் கண்ணார் அமுதனை கண்டறிவாரில்லை உள் நாடி ஒளி பெற உள்ளே நோக்கினார் கண்ணாடி போல கலந்து நின்றானே

    A story, as told by Paramaacharya, on Gayatri Mahimai

    The following link is a real story, as told by Paramaachaarya, in his own words, quoted with due respect to the persons cncerned, on the mahimai of Gayatri Japam.

    This link is in Tamil, as it is a quote. This explains the background of how Knnadian canal in Tirunelveli seemai came into existence, in addition to the mahimai of Gayatri Japam.

    i have a l.p. of jesudoss' gayatri mantra.

    at my wife's yoga class, the white lady yoga teacher plays gayatri mantra as part of the exercise curriculum.

    i am with ramanuja who bellowed it aloud to the world.

    i am disgusted when i still get poonal invitations with a pix of kudumi father, whispering the mantra to his son, under the cover of a cloth.

    even more sad, is the fact, that all my nephews, are being poonalled at great expenses (!) by their parents, only to hang the thread on the coat stand.

    i can say that 100% of these youths do not know or say their gayatri or sandhyavandhanam or abhivaadhey.

    ... these are cross sections of our community... enough said about hypocracy.. times like these i think of nara

    North Indians both men and women recite gayathri manthra loudly in temples. There is no more secrecy of the manthra as our community claims.

    thank you venkat.

    any guess as to why only TBs have this obsession against non TBs hearing gayathri... the last time i personally came across this, was in 1964 during my poonal, when my house vadhyar in no flattering terms of other communities told me never to utter gayatri loud.

    the only reason i think the obnoxious practice is continued, is because of the pictorial reference in poonal invitations.

    these are aspects which makes me cringe ....

    There is absolutely no evidence that Bhagavat Ramanuja shouted aloud the moola manthram (Thiruvashtaksharam) from the top of the gopuram in Thirukkoshtiyur. This is a popular story, but very unlikely to be true.

    First, I do believe Bhagavat Ramanuja was a revolutionary (it is possible with proper leadership) with a great heart -- no wonder Amuthanaar sang காரேய் கருணை இராமானுசா. But, he did not shout out the manthra aloud.

    The hagiography of Sri Vaishnava acharyas written the closest to the times of Bhagavat Ramanuja has him going up the gopuram and calling out to everyone to come and that he will show the way to mOksham. Then, inside the temple, in front of the Nrisimhar sannidhi, he explained the hidden meaning of Thiruvashtakshra manthram. Even here, in a smomewhat private setting, he did not say the manthra aloud.

    A small and may be unimportant detail perhaps, but here it is, this is what is in the records. How the story got embellished, I really don't know.

    Cheers!

    p.s. Mahakavi Bharathi translated Gayathri Manthram into a Tamil verse in Panchali Sabadam #153.

    செங்கதிர் தேவன் சிறந்த யொளியினைத் தேர்கின்றோம் - அவன்
    எங்க ளறிவினை தூண்டி நடத்துக

    He had a fetish for sun gazing.
