Hindus celebrate Gayatri Jayanti as a magnificent and sacred day. According to the conventional Hindu calendar, it is observed immediately following Shravana Purnima (the full moon day in the Hindu month of Shravana). According to the Gregorian calendar, this date falls between the months of July and August.
The Sama Vedi, Rig, and Yajur Brahmins chant the Gayatri mantra with the utmost passion and dedication on the auspicious day of Gayatri Japam, also known as “Gayatri Japa Sankalpam.” This rite is a component of the Avani Avittam and Upakarma rituals in the southern Indian states.
Rituals of Gayatri Japam
To the Sun God, the Gayatri mantra is dedicated. Chanting the Gayatri Mantra three times a day, once in the morning when the sun rises, once at noon when the sun reaches its highest point, and once in the evening when the sun sets, is considered to be extremely meritorious. One mantra that connects a person to the all-powerful Supreme Power is the Gayatri Mantra.
Gayatri Japam’s significance
Numerous puranas and holy texts written in the Hindu language refer to the Gayatri Mantra’s supremacy. Since the Vedic era, people have known about this mantra’s magnificence. This mantra is the basis for all other mantras in Hinduism and is more potent than all other mantras combined. Gayatri is referred to as the Mother Goddess and is considered to be the Supreme Goddess, according to legend. A person who performs Gayatri Japam with sincerity is said to receive all spiritual and material pleasures. The Gayatri Mantra has such potency that, in addition to providing self-purification, it also frees the person from all of their misdeeds.
