Adopt the Gayatri mantra routine

The Gayatri mantra is an all-round remedy for all issues in life and everyone above 6yrs of age must recite this mantra. It should be a part of everyone’s daily routine. 

Ideal would be to recite the Gayatri mantra mentally 108 times, 3 times a day, ie dawn, midday and dusk, at the three Sandhya times. Simple mental recitation takes 10mins, you can do it wherever you are. But for some reason, if you cannot do 108 repeats, at least recite it 1, 3, 27, 54 times. It is a mantra, but you can even think of it as a prayer to your internal divinity or as a way of invoking your inner light or consider the Devi Gayatri as your mother, or whatever makes sense to you, even a song! but do recite this. It is the only way you can protect your Sva-dharma, your internal foundation, the philosophy you live your life by.

The Yajnopavit Sanskar is a compulsory rite for Hindus where the person takes a life time Sankalp to perform the Gayatri puja three times a day for a life time. This indicates the essential role of the Gayatri mantra. (These days, very few boys from Brahmin families take up this intention.)

But everyone can do this small self-initiation for the Gayatri. Start on a Sunday. Wake up before sunrise and get ready. Face east, look at the rising Sun, see the power of the Gayatri reflected in his light. Offer him some water, vermillion, flowers etc, request help and support and start your practice with the Gayatri mantra. Put your entire faith/ Shraddha in it and continue this for a lifetime. Recite it yourself and encourage your family members and friends to do so. Everyone who thinks of themselves as a follower of the Sanatan Dharma must do this practice, now more than ever.
The Gayatri is the mother of the Ved, it is the Ved-mata, its the source of all mantra, all power is from it, all intelligence is born of the Gayatri mantra, it is pure consciousness. 
I have written several posts on the Gayatri mantra like,

The Gayatri mantra

Gayatri Mantra, Devi Sarasvati, Raja-gun and Agni

(use the index page or the search bar for more).

(For women, no jaap, pujas etc for at least 5days of the monthly cycle as the body is undergoing controlled destruction post here)

The Gayatri mantra is the Adhar-stambh ie the pillar which supports in every way possible. For every other mantra to be effective the Gayatri mantra has to first give its support. eg if you do some Graha shanti pujas but are not doing Gayatri jaap in your life, the Shanti puja will not give full results. The Gayatri mantra is essential for everything. It is mentioned in the Rg Ved (3.62.10) and it’s Seer is Rishi Vishvamitra. Vishvamitra means, ‘Vishvasya Mitra iti Vishvamitra’. Thus Vishvamitra is the friend of the universe, the Sun of the underlying intelligent consciousness, the Illumination within everyone, the all pervading Consciousness. Thus the Supreme intelligence itself has Seen the Gayatri mantra. Thus the power of this mantra.

I am stressing on the Gayatri as a daily practice for a specific reason. Yesterday I thought of writing a post on the upcoming Rahu’s transit into Krutika nakshatra. I started analysing the transits of the other planets etc during this period and felt worried. I abandoned that post and decided to write this short one instead. Focus on the solution.

In the present context, the supreme importance of the Gayatri mantra is the Rg ved rk 3.53.12 which says this, ‘Vishvamitrasya rakshati brahmaedam bharatam janam’. In simple words, ‘This Highest Consciousness of Vishvamitra, ie the Gayatri mantra, continually protects the people of Bharat’. All people who follow the Sanatan Dharma, wherever they may reside on the earth are the ‘people of Bharat’.

Given the situations which might come in the future, it is imperative that everyone invokes the Gayatri mantra. If each one of us does our individual routine with the Gayatri mantra, the collective will also gain its protection.

Om, Bhuh Bhuvah Swah
Om Tat Savitur Varenyam
Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi
Dhiyo Yo nah Prachodayat,

ॐ भूः भुवः स्वः ।
ॐ तत्सवितुर्वरेण्यम ।
भर्गो देवस्य धीमहि।
धियो यो नः प्रचोदयात॥

    Dear Tejaswini, Hari Om!

    Blessed to hear such conviction about the Gayatri Mantra! May we all be protected by Gayatri!

    I was reading your other post on the Sun and the Sudarshana Chakra Chart…and all I could see or think of was Lord Vishnu’s Sudarshana Chakra. I couldn’t help wondering about the deeper correlations of the same name or whether my faith was reading meanings into it…ye yatha maam prapadyante tams tathaiva bhajamyham. Either way it was a lovely few days of contemplation….the Sudarshana Chakra held by the Lord is not an object, let alone a crass weapon. He wields the mysteries of Time, good and bad and therefore He alone is our Sharanagati! I loved the musings…Shri Hari’s grace.

    Happy Krishna Janmashtami to you…(and yes,) Shri Krishna has Himself declared in the Geeta that He is the supreme energy of Gayatri mantra.

    Warm regards…

      Hi there
      Janma-ashtami is called Kaal-ashtami in Maharashtra. and hope it is auspicious for everyone.

      Shri Vishnu is the embodiment of the Satva-gun, one of the three gun created by the Devi Prakruti aka Devi Lalita.
      The tattvas are created by the action of Raja gun on Satva gun. So the creation that we see is produced from the ‘body of the satva gun’ Vishnu by the creative ability of the Raja gun Brahmadev. Thus worshipping Satva gun helps maintain creation, our life and living experience. Naturally he wields conscious the energy of time and space as a weapon to destroy Adharma.
      thts why i recommend Shri Sukta as the main remedy for everything, Devi Laxmi, his counterpart is generally gentle, motherly sort of energy, so all can use it without any issues.
      higher level aspirants can use the Purush sukta as its energies are more intense.

      In my personal opinion Bhagwan Vishnu is primarily an Ugra devata, no less than Bhagwan Shankar. All his Avtars are also very Ugra, including Vaman, Ram and Krishna. He/ they do not waste even 1 min in decisively destroying Adharma. And thts the reason he took those avtars in the first place, to destroy all that challenges Dharma.

      I have written several posts on the Bhagvat Gita. It is a valuable book but only if read and understood in the real sense.
      Obviously it is primarily a yogshastra, ie a practical manual on attaining moksh, so read Swami Pranavanand’s book on the Gita, if you can find it. it is originally in Bengali and translated in Hindi. I saw an English version of this but the translation is not up to the mark, read the Hindi version. I think Swami Pranavanand wrote it 100 or so yrs ago. This is the only book on the Gita which captures the real use of this book.
      Then it is pure Advaita, so read the Adi Shankacharya’s Bhasya on it. This Bhashya is the only book which gives the true meaning of the words in this text, the pure intelligence shining through.

      Again there are several Gita-s, all give the same message. Eg the Shiv Gita told by Bhagwan Shankar to Shri Ram is the same, it too has the Vishvaroop. All these texts give the same message. use the techniques given in it to destroy the internal self-ego and find the true Self.

      ‘Krishna’ in the real sense is not a deity nor a god or a man.
      It is the unknowable Intelligence or the undefinable blackness (black coz it cant be described in words) or the attribute-less energy that you see at the third eye when you do your Dhyan. It pulls you towards itself.
      It is the Advaita that you and me also are.

      The Om (moorti of the Advaita in this universe) directly creates the Gayatri.
      If you do your Sadhana, you will hear the Gayatri in your Dhyan avastha. The entire creation is resonating with this mantra. Initially it is heard in the mumbling voice of an old woman later it becomes the youthful voice of a young woman. Everyone who does their sadhana hears this eternal Gayatri at some point of time.

        I am also deeply moved by your posts on Advaita… At this juncture, I want to share my very humble thought… Every time I type “I” I question the “I” thought. What is “I” ?
        I dont know if I can describe this in words…. it is beyond words Madam…
        Thus ” I ” find it difficult to say that “I do spiritual practice” though I do practice . I remember reading a post to this effect in this knowledge portal ( I prefer the term knowledge portal to a blog)
        Best wishes and regards Madam,


  4. Vishakha August 25, 2021 / 5:23 pm

    I agree with the term “knowledge portal” instead of “blog.”

    Sangah satsu vidheeyatam… Bhagavan Adi Shankaracharya states this very important factor in Sadhana Pancakam.

    This portal is precious for seekers… here you can hear the voice of Gayatri or visualise Shri Krishna is His cosmic blackness…in full authenticity and more importantly with the power of reinforcement.

    God bless!

    Hi Tejaswiniji

    Thanks for the post. It was something going on in my mind with view of all recent events and short term predictions. This helps.

    I had another stupid question 🙂

    These days the night sky is hardly visible. And the exact planetary / constellation positions can be obtained probably only via satellites or may be in some remote under developed region.

    1. How are panchangs calculated if one is unable to see night sky.

    2. All constellations are not visible at the same time, in such cases with just one or 2 of them, can the whole Nakshatra positions be extrapolated.



    • astrologerbydefault August 25, 2021 / 8:56 pm

      Hi there
      it is visual observations and math. math is more important now.
      earlier there were brahmins who would do the observations, for generations but the invaders killed most of them. its a loss on such scales that we cannot even imagine.
      (its frustrating to even think that the precise observations are not available anymore)
      so what we have now is fragments from these older studies which are out of date by 500 or so years and the math. so we do more of the math.

      if you dig deeper there are so many problems with the application of the math too. but somehow despite this, Jyotish still works

    Hi, have binge read almost all of your posts except the astrology ones. Wonderful writings all of them. Please accept heart felt gratitude of a seeker.

    It is said that Gayatri mantra has been cursed by many sages etc and only shraap vimochana releases its power.

    Kindly clear this doubt as i am sure that there are many seekers held back due to these stories /facts .

    Blessings on you and yours


    • astrologerbydefault August 25, 2021 / 9:17 pm

      Hi there
      if someone is scared of the Gayatri then i really dont know what to say. this person would be the most unfortunate person alive.

      Gayatri mantra at its simplest form can be recited by any one without any problems whatsoever, it is essential for every hindu to do so, 6yrs onwards.
      just do a namaskar in gratitude to the Sun which mirrors your internal Sun before you start.

      but if you want to use the Gayatri mantra in its real form, ie use it as per the Gayatri and other tantra, then there are so many things needed. first of all a basic 24lakh jaap of the mantra. Assuming that the yajnopavit sanskar is done at the age of 6yrs, then the person will recite 108 X3 daily, he will attain siddhi at the age of 27yrs. thus this age is considered very important.
      after that this person can start using the Gayatri tantra and other tantra. but only serious practitioners do this now, its very rare.
      there is a surya tantra, laxmi tantra, ganapati tantra, vishnu tantra, brahma tantra, etc etc all deities have their own tantra, naturally Gayatri tantra based on this mantra also exists.

      i really wonder who has the power to ‘curse’ the Gayatri? the idea is so ridiculous.

      the ancient Rishi-s put this condition to prevent abuse of the power,
      there are so many people who would love to wield the power of the Gayatri for their selfish needs.
      thus the precondition of that many jaap. 24lakh Gayatri mantra jaap, can u imagine the power, the auspiciousness, the sheer power of the vibrations! this will first clean out the mind of the aspirant, remove all the trash, ego , selfishness etc from his mind. so that he can wield the power of the mantra in the most selfless way possible.

      for people like you or me, can think of her as the mother, a very loving, generous and powerful mother and recite her mantra with love and respect.

      however, as in everything else, each one is free to choose for themselves, so choose what you do as per your own conscience

      Hi there
      What are ‘children’ expression of creativity and link to the future generations.
      Everyone is supposed to get married and have physical children.

      Only if u take sanyas you are exempted frm this condition.
      But the 5th house finds its expression in this case as shishyas disciples students. These are also ‘children’ in the sense that they carry on your teachings knowledge and wisdom to the future. That is why i called them the ‘children of the soul’. Its a poetic expression

    Hi Mam,

    My grandfather was very learned in Sanskrit and Urdu. He taught me Gayatri mantra at a very young age, later I stopped(he tried teaching me Sanskrit and other pooja but i ignored it).
    Sometime back i started daily jaap addressed to different deities.

    I start with reciting OM Ganesh Namahe (11times), then Gayatri mantra for 11(times), and then proceed with other jaaps (11times).

    – Is it ok to do Jaap for 11 times?

    – Should i do Ganesh jaap before or after gayatri mantra.?

    – While reciting gayatri mantra , i salute to the sun god(his evolution), my parents, family, pitr, guru, jatheri mata, kul devi & devta, nav grahas, all creatures in this universe(living & non living), five elements(water, sky, earth, fire& air), five directions and last to myself(five elements).

    – Please let me know if any correction is needed at my end.



    • astrologerbydefault August 26, 2021 / 9:05 am

      Hi there
      ‘Ganeshe’ is not correct.
      Check the mantras before you do their jaap.

      How can i tell u if it’s enough or not?
      One must follow personal inclination and family traditions as much as possible.

      Gayatri will always b the first mantra whenever you recite ib sequence with others.

    Many thanks for this wonderful post🙏🏻♥️

    Early this year, I had a pooja done. Among other mantras, the 3 priests did a chanting of the Gayatri mantra (which was supposed to be chanted several thousand times, so 3 priests were chanting together to meet the target). I found that they were chanting a short form of Gayatri mantra, which was not the full mantra as we know.

    Do these short forms of Gayatri mantra work? Personally, I don’t prefer to do short forms of any mantras when I am chanting. But when a Brahmin does it for me & my family, I was wondering.

    Please do put up that post on upcoming Rahu transit in Krutika🙏🏻 Please🙏🏻

    Many thanks for this beautiful post. A general question about mantras-
    You note above that mantras clear the mind of the aspirant. Is it normal that after some time, chanting a mantra can cause stress and anxiety? Is this typically temporary?

    I do mantra jaap of an ugra mantra. In the beginning i felt so much lighter, happier, optimistic and received other signs that i should continue. But lately i have been feeling so anxious to the point where i feel like all my spiritual practices arent enough. I understand that sometimes this feeling can be due to dashas/transits ( im at the peak of my sade sati). I will add the gayatri as I think this will be helpful as a shanti mantra. I get paranoid that perhaps I made a mistake and did something wrong- do you recommend any mantra or prayer to ask the devi for forgiveness for anything we may have inadvertently done wrong?

    Dear Tejaswiniji,

    Reaching out to you in a period of confusion. And apologies for using a thread on Gayatri mantra – as couldn’t find any other way of pinging you.

    Lost my mom 3 months ago in COVID- it was brutal and abrupt. Post that one of our close family friends – felt she was possessed by mother’s spirit passing messages to her (simple stuff like go back to home as we had shifted out to Airbnb due to COVID etc, some of these we could do- some we could not due to existent situations). This person was also going through some other problems – so after a point it became difficult to figure what was her problem vs a genuine message. But she was convinced that she was possessed so she went to tantrik- who apparently has gotten rid of the spirit and now also constrained it.

    Now we are worried about moms spirit and wanted to seek some help to navigate through some very uncertain waters.

    Is there someone you can recommend (since I saw many posts saying you have stepped away and also somewhere you referring to a tantrik friend ) or if you can help.

    We are very confused- as have spoken to mediums etc and everyone has a different take- while we as a household believed in Puja and having a benevolent world view, have no understanding of the spirit world – and worried and any help would be really appreciated. Sorry for the bother but really need a helping hand from someone who can genuinely guide us in these times.



    • SS August 27, 2021 / 11:36 am

      Also wanted to add – we did have some paranormal stuff at the time (flickering lights, lavender scent which used to be the powder mom used etc). Also some of the stuff this friend came up with – was something she was unlikely to have known (eg she asking that my dad should go home and make chai and chuda and all of us as family should go and have it, which used to be their ritual- simple mundane stuff but personal or more important things which mom held dear eg me reconciling with my wife where marriage got dissolved)- which makes me believe that there was something to it and it wasn’t just some paranoia.

      Sorry – thought important to add this context here.


      • astrologerbydefault August 27, 2021 / 1:12 pm

        Hi there
        if you have done all the anteyshthi related things, ie astivisarjan and pinda daan then it should not be a problem, just give a go-gras, ie homemade chapati with jaggery to a cow, request her blessing and request tht your ancestors be satisfied by this go-gras. this always works.
        or you can feed chapati-jaggery to ravens, if there are no cows around.

        also if you get scary dreams, do simple milk abhishek on a shiv-lingam.

        and nxt month is pitru-paksh, do the pinda daan sincerely
        ie if your mother was a suhasini/ sumangali when she physically died, ie then you have to do the pindadaan on the navmi,
        some families also do it on the exact tithi of exit,
        and a general pindadaan for all ancestors on sarva-pitri amavasya.
        do this and things should be fine from the ancestors overall

        Thanks a lot- it’s very kind of you to so promptly respond and in detail. We will do all these as advised.

        Just one concern- this friend believes that Tantrik somehow has contained the spirit. We were just worried about moms spirit well being. One medium we spoke to yesterday said that she hasn’t reached the “spiritual plane” and is stuck in “astral plane”.

        We are complete novices – so were looking at some way to ascertain that she is at peace.



      • SS August 27, 2021 / 3:10 pm

        Thanks so much for a prompt and very detailed answer- we will do these as advised.

        However one concern we have had – is that because of Tantriks intervention – can it be that her spirit is constrained somewhere?

        In our struggle – we also talked to a medium who said that she could not find her in the “spiritual realm” and that apparently she is still in “astral realm”- though the reason she quoted was moms attachment to family and concern.

        We are complete novices – and hence were wondering do we need to talk/consult with someone who can check whether her spirit is at peace or not ?

        Thanks again for your guidance and sorry for another question.

        We really don’t know any tantrik and hence was wondering if there is someone you can refer?

        This is quite an extraordinary request – but would be very obliged, as you mentioned -we are really struggling to find someone who knows this and is genuine. Many thanks

    Nice post. This is what really required to overcome these challenging time. If we recite it for 9 times, is it ok?

    Dear Mam,

    I just had a little tiff with my relative over a thing which i expected to be very smooth and normal as my intentions were good. I have ketu with mercury (my moon sign lord, 8th house is gemini) in 2nd house.

    I feel scared a bit about my speech now and wonder how to improve miscommunication related relationship issues.

    Thanks and Regards

    Ma’am, you should not think of me – as someone pestering you, post this- will not ping.

    But we have been genuinely under stress with all that I discussed. Also read through your blog posts to try and understand- what one can in a short frame. Came across few posts mentioning Shaman/tantrik.


    where you mention few kind tantriks using white magic.

    Tbh, have zero experience and understanding of this field and was desperately looking for a genuine guide who is capable and not looking for just commercial gains. Someone who can once look at the issue and just assuredly tell us – that it’s ok.

    I know am a complete stranger from Adam and this is pushing it a lot and I apologise but if you can extend any help- will be great.

    Last few weeks we have spoken to healers, mediums etc and that has just confused us- as a family we are under lot of duress.

    Am also worried about my father so just want to close this with someone’s guidance- where can believe mother is at peace.

    If you can, kindly help- would remain ever obliged.

      Hi there
      I never ever recommend anyone.

      Do u think its so easy to trap a soul?
      If u have done the anteyshthi asti visarjan and 13th day pindadana properly the soul is free to continue its journey to pitrulok.

      Easy souls who have exited frm human shells to trap are
      Pregnant women who died
      People who are killed ritually fr tht purpose
      People who are buried

      Am sure ur mother is none of these things.

      So do the things i had recommended and leave it to your ancestors as a collective.

      I do not trust any “mediums” esp in cities, they are interested in preying on others emotions and money.

      Unless u r getting dreams or visions urself in which ur mother is clearly telling u things. Even then what i have written will work.

      With the deaths after corona ie improper anteyshthi there are several souls wandering about as it is, so easy to grab them if needed fr some small work

        Thanks a lot ma’am. Appreciate your kindness. We will do the rituals as you suggest. Regards

        Hi there

        It seems tht u need closure more than anything else.
        Do remember tht thinking so much about a departed soul causes trauma to it. It becomes restless and follows the energy of ur thoughts back to u. It can come back to martyalok using yr own thoughts. Its likely tht u r forcing it to remain here coz ur incessant thoughts
        So stop thinking and let it sleep.

        u can request ur family deities to help it. But dont get so anxious.

    Hope you are doing well.

    I started following your posts during the first lockdown. That was the first time I had started learning (rather tried to learn) astrology. I found your posts very straightforward and elaborate, religious and spiritual with every detail coming from profound knowledge which makes me feel enlightened whenever I read your posts.

    The fact that you take time out to respond elaborately to each and every comment is commendable.

    I have not been able to be consistent in my study but whenever I read a post of yours I have doubts/questions. The problem being, I cannot see the option to comment/post reply on each post where I have a query (may be there is a limit or deadline for comments).

    So, I’m using this thread to check in and express my concern. Is there another way to ask questions regarding each post/doubt?

    Looking forward to your response.

    Thank you.

      Hi there
      I close comments on the older posts bcoz I cannot answer so many. I simply do not have the time.
      My blog is very popular. Its 2 yrs old and has 2 million views already. I neither advertise it nor promote it anywhere

      Even now with just one page open fr comments i get too many. Mostly asking fr personal readings or discussing their personal charts combinations. I delete such.
      In fact at one point of time i had closed all comments. But then i was convinced into keeping one page comments open.

        I can totally understand. It’s not easy to keep up. Also, this subject needs specific responses so I can’t even imagine how consuming it is (for both time and emotions).

        Yes, your blog is not advertised anywhere. I happen to stumble upon it while searching for something specific regarding the subject but otherwise it doesn’t show up on the top while searching.
        That said, it is educational and interesting.

        I’m trying to go through your posts chronologically and sometimes I get stuck with certain terminologies or ideas. I’ll try to keep up with the posts and ask questions where the comments are still open.

        I remember reading one of your post about Karma where you clearly mentioned about your Karma being balanced regarding any readings for people and you wouldn’t want to do that anymore.
        So I would try my best to not ask you for personal readings and/or combinations unless there is a specific need to understand via reference in any of the articles.

        Thank You for responding to my message.

        Looking forward to your posts and responses (if/when).

        Hi there
        i do not get emotional about any one, its each one’s karma that each one goes through.

        if there are any common interest questions or which can help you study the subject, you can post them and i will try to answer.

        every genuine astrologer eventually stops doing readings for others.

    Hi mam, I have a question. But it’s regarding the 6/8 axis post you had made earlier, I hope it’s okay to ask the question here, because I find the patterns of charts to be incredibly fascinating. My Pisces sign is in 9th, which is 6th from Jupiter (which is sitting in the 4th in Libra). So that means it gives difficulties with regards to 9th house matters, and I have faced a lot of difficulties with higher education. However, Venus is sitting in Pisces, which means Venus – already an enemy of Jupiter – is 6th from Jupiter. This is also understandable. But since Venus and Jupiter are in “Parivartan”, how can I understand this?! Because the parivartan will only enhance the individual planets’ existing comfort, discomfort, right?!

      Hi there
      cancer asc
      exalted venus is badhak in the 9th house
      dharmesh jupiter in 4th in libra
      both are really good positions and on top of that in mutual exchange,
      they will give quite good effects when their time comes
      in the meanwhile do your gayatri, and esp if your family deity is a female deity, do her worship
      it will sort out everything.

        We don’t have a family deity … my parents are both within the Ramkrishna Mission order, and in our house devi (kali), lakshmi, saraswati, shiva, and ganesha have all been there quite strongly! But I personally have been drawn to Shiva since I was a child, he is the only thing that gives me comfort. It is difficult for me to visualise any one else. But something strange happened in a vision recently that I am not comfortable discussing here, which made me realise that “the Mother” also comes when you call…. Thank you so much for your answer 🙂 means a lot.

        Hi there
        Every family has a kul devata and a gram devata.
        Its possible tht the families forget them as they move around by choice or r forcibly made to move
        eg 1947 partition, a bengali friend says her kuldevata temple was at Dhaka.
        eg my moms family ran out of goa when the portuguese were killing Hindus/ Goa inquisition. there about 300yrs ago but they still remember and go to those same temples even now.

        Forgetting them also causes problems fr the layer generations.
