Of all mantras, the supreme and the most potent power of powers is the great, glorious Gayatri-mantra. It is the support of every seeker after Truth who believes in its efficacy, power and glory, be he of any caste, creed, claim, or sect. It is only one’s faith and purity of heart that really count. Indeed, Gayatri is an impregnable spiritual armour, a veritable fortress, that guards and protects its votary, that transforms him into the divine, and blesses him with the brilliant light of the highest spiritual illuminatino. Whatever your Ista-devata may be, the regular repetition of a few-mala-s of Gayatri every day will bestow upon you all that is auspicious and benevolent, herein and hereafter.
