Sri Swami Vishwananda will be celebrating Gayatri Yagna 2012 at Shree Peetha Nilaya, Springen, Germany June 29, 30 and July 1, beginning today, Friday June 29.
The Gāyatrī Mantra is a highly revered mantra, based on a Vedic Sanskrit verse from a hymn of the Rigveda (3.62.10), attributed to the rishi (sage) Vishwamitra.
Om Bhur Bhuvah Swaha
Tat Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi
Dhiyo Yo Nah Prachodayat
The Gayatri Mantra is repeated and cited very widely in Vedic literature, and praised in several well-known classical Hindu texts such as the Bhagavad Gita.
