Gayatri Jayanti 2020

Gayatri Maa

Gayatri Jayanti celebrates the manifestation of Goddess Gayatri, who is worshipped as Veda Mata (The Mother of Vedas). In 2020, the date of Gayatri Jayanti is June 1. Scholars also indicate that Sage Vishwamitra first uttered the Gayatri Mantra on the Jyeshtha Shukla Dashami day. And this day is observed as Gayatri Jayanti day.

Gayatri is a universal prayer that is addressed to the immanent and transcendent divine. The Gayatri Mantra is sacred and is considered the mother of the Vedas. It is non-denominational and can be chanted by anyone to illumine the intellect. It can be chanted upon waking, before the midday meal and in the evening – alone or in the company of the goodly and Godly.
