religion or sex. Persons who have practised have a lot of faith in it. Such practitioners have devoted themselves to Gayatri for ever and
reached the stage of salvation. Our revered saints have done research on Gayatri which was very much compiled in Purans, sanhitas and other Hindu religious classics.

The Gayatri worship should be started during Poornirna in the Hora of Moon.
Gayatri mantra for planets can be recited for shanti purpose if one is already initiated in moola gayatri manta (given at the time of Upanayana).
This involves 3 lines in specific pronunciation pattern and can be learnt personally under the able guidance of a guru. Priests who do not have much concentration prefer this mantra to conduct shanti in the similar manner as in beeja mantra japa.
