The Goddess Gayatri is, in Hinduism, the embodiment of the Gayatri Mantra. This mantra is the most powerful of all and is considered the most sacred part of Rigveda. Among the earliest creations of Brahma are the Goddesses Sarasvati and Gayatri.

Watch a video about Gayatri below:

The Goddess Gayatri is typically portrayed sitting on a red lotus, which means wealth and can appear in two forms:

  • With five different faces (Mukta, Vidruma, Hema, Neela, Dhavala) representing the pancha pranas / pancha vayus (senses/winds) and ten arms. Her ten eyes face eight different directions beyond heaven and earth and her arms hold all the weapons of  Brahma, Vishnu e Shiva.
  • Beside a white swan, holding scriptures (denoting knowledge) in one hand and a vase in another, symbolizing healing. In this way, she is the Goddess of education, similar to the Goddess Sarasvati.

Goddess Gayatri – Triple Goddess

Gayatri Mantra

In addition to being the embodiment of the Gayatri Mantra, it is said that the Goddess Gayatri is a representation of the Goddess Sarasvati or the culmination of three Goddesses together: Lakshmi, Parvati and Sarasvati.

Hence, Gayatri is a Triple Goddess in essence.

Goddess Gayatri and the writings of truth

Hinduísm has got an extensive system of sacred scriptures called Vedas. There are four works written in Vedic Sanskrit (which later gave rise to classical Sanskrit) dating back a long time.

The most ancient text is Rigveda, registered between 2000 BCE and 1500 BCE, and it is where Gāyatrī Mantra (ॐभूर्भुवस्व) is written for the first time. Scholars believe, although, that this Mantra was taught orally for many years before.

Being the second most revered mantra in Hinduism, behind only Om (ॐ), Gāyatrī Mantra also summons Savita, Solar Indian Diety, and for this reason, it is also called as Sāvitrī.

According to the beliefs of the Hindus, the knowledge recorded in the Vedas represents all “truth.” Being “mother of the Vedas”, we can also interpret the Goddess Gayatri as “mother of truth”.

Summoning Goddess Gayatri

The Gāyatrī Mantra inspires knowledge and wisdom. Its translation is something along the lines of “May Almighty One enlighten our intellect to guide us in the right way.”

You can recite the mantra, along with some incense, to inspire those qualities and thus achieve your goals.

Goddess Gayatri in pop culture

The opening theme of the science fiction series Battlestar Galactica (ABC) contains the Gayatri mantra:

During her tour (Living Proof: The Farewell Tour), the American singer Cher included in her repertoire the mantra:
