The Gayatri Mantra was first recorded in the Rig Veda around 2500 to 3500 years ago. It is considered to be one of the oldest known and most powerful mantras. It is a Sanskrit Mantra and has been chanted for thousands of years. It was written down during the Vedic period (1500-500 BCE) and is chanted all over the world today. It is said the Gayatri mantra contains all the knowledge of the universe. This mantra is an expression of gratitude and praise to the powers of transformation, inner growth, and self realization provided by the radiant light of the divine. When we meditate on this mantra, spiritual light purifies the heart chakra and opens it up to receive higher vibrations of love, wisdom, and bliss.
When regularly chanted the Gayatri mantra will not only raise your own vibratory level but also the vibration of those around you , your family and friends, your circle of acquaintances, the entire global community . When we chant this mantra 108 times a day it is said to help us harmonize with the vibrations of the universe.
