Yoga of the Gayatri Mantra

"Of the many methods of yoga one of the most potent is

the yoga of Gayatri mantra. Mantras have powers to
endow one with remarkable abilities. The Gayatri
mantra gives the devotees spiritual as well as
material benefits."
--- Ramana Maharshi
"The way honey is the essence of flowers, and butter
of milk, in the same manner Gayatri is the essence of
all the Vedas. Gayatri when realized is verily the
Kamadhenu - the celestial wish-fulfilling cow. Ganga
cleanses the sins of this worldly body; Gayatri
purifies the soul. The worship of god bereft of
Gayatri is like going out to beg food leaving the
meals laid out before you. Gayatri is the greatest
means of extending your spiritual powers and
successful accomplishment of good ends. There is
nothing greater than Gayatri for this purpose.."
--- Veda Vyasa
"Even divinities like Brahma pray to Gayatri because
Gayatri makes possible the realization of Brahman.
Gayatri removes from you the propensity to evil
--- Rishi Bharadwaja
"Even fools, criminals and men with unstable minds are
able to attain enlightenment by the power of Gayatri.
When that is so, then the worship of Gayatri by the
firm and pure minded persons will surely lead them to
self knowledge and self-realisation."
--- Sage Vashishtha
"It is not possible for us to describe the greatness
of Gayatri. It is not possible to act in this world
beneficently without purity of mind. This purity of
mind which brings in enlightenment leading to
self-realisation is the result of the inspiration
received from Gayatri. The avatara of Gayatri has
occurred to aid us in the eradication of evil and to
help increase the good."
--- Jagadguru Sankaracharya
"Gayatri purifies the mind. Without the purity of mind
our life is of no use. Gayatri is the producer of this
purity of mind."
--- Sawami Vidyanada
"Of the many invaluable treasures given to us by our

rishis, Gayatri is the incomparable one. Gayatri makes

mind pure and gives the light of god to the soul and
that releases light innumerable souls from the world's
bondage. Gayatri makes man god-loving while freeing
him from worldly wants."
--- Pandit Madanmohan Malaviya
"The great mantra of Gayatri has a unique contribution
to make in the impending new age. Its impact on the
moral and ethical renascence of this new
scientific-intellectual age will be unequalled,
unparalleled and extraordinary."
--- Sriram Sharma Acharya
Now lets listen to what the highest authority Sri
Ramakrishna Paramahamsa said about Gayatri:
"I tell people that due to the sadhana of Gayatri hard
austeries have been rendered unnecessary. The greatest
of siddhis can be obtained by the japa of Gayatri. The
Gayatri mantra is small but its powers immeasurable."
--- Ramakrishna Paramahamsa
