Mantras have been given special importance in Hinduism. Mantra is such a medium through which mere mortals can reach the Supreme God. In the philosophy of Hinduism, it can be seen very commonly that many people have proved their desires through mantras. It is said about Mantras that through this you can control any God, Yaksha, Gandharbha, that is, you can prove it. Gayatri Mantra, Mahamrityunjaya Mantra, Devi Mantra, Narayan Mantra etc. are the most chanted mantras in Hinduism nothing is really in one form here everything is in many forms. Same is the case with mantras, here there is no uniform mantra. Here the number of mantras is countless and each mantra has its own importance. In such a situation, a question that always comes to mind is which is the most powerful mantra?
When we talk about the most powerful mantra, many mantras come in front of us, about which people talk. But Gayatri Mantra is considered by most of the people as one of the most powerful mantras. Gayatri Mantra originated from Vedas. Especially from Rigveda and Yajurveda. In fact, the oldest scriptures are like a storehouse of mantras in Vedas or it can also be said that it is the origin place of mantras. All the mantras that are used at present are either derived from the Vedas or else they have been created with their inspiration.
Gayatri Mantra comes in the greatest and most powerful mantras of Hinduism. It originated from the Vedas. Although this mantra does not come from any one Veda, this mantra is composed of the mantras of Rigveda and Yajurveda. Its importance is considered similar to that of the most sacred chant of OM in Hinduism. The mantra used in this is Yajurveda’s mantra Om Bhurbhuvah Swah and Rigveda’s verse 3.62.10 (Tatsaviturvarenya Bhargo Devasya: Dhimahi Dhiyo Yo Nah Prachodayat) and the combination of these two makes Gayatri Mantra. Gayatri Mantra is also called Savitri Mantra because Savitri Dev has been worshiped in it. Savitri Dev is considered as the solar deity according to Rigveda. People who believe in Hinduism believe that by chanting and understanding this mantra, God and his blessings are received. This mantra is also chanted in the form of Shri Gayatri i.e. female.
