Gayatri Mantra quotes

“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 actions.”
— 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
“I tell people that due to the sadhana of Gayatri hard austeries have been rendered unnecessary. The treatest of siddhis can be obtained by the japa of Gayatri. The Gayatri mantra is small but its powers immeasurable. ”
— Ramakrishna Paramahamsa
“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-intellec tual age will be unequalled, unparalleled and extraordinary. ”
— Sriram Sharma Acharya

  1. Madanmohan, the king of ghazals gave a separate dimension to the sweet voice of Lata. Most of his compositions had ghazal andaz and Lata could use her classical base with her expression to provide life in the compositions.
