 Who is Goddess Gayatri?

 Mata Gayatri is referred to as “Vedmata”. It is from her that the four Vedas (Rigveda, Yajurveda, Samaveda and Atharva), Sruti and the scriptures are considered to be originated. According to Hindu religious scriptures, the governing Goddess of Tridev, i.e., Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh also consider Gayatri and hence she is also called “Devamata”. 

According to Hindu religious texts, she is the incarnation of Lakshmi, Saraswati and Parvati, the second wife and mother of Brahma. Goddess Gayatri has a store of knowledge and hence, she is also called “Gyan-Ganga”. Initially, Goddess Gayatri was limited to only deities, but sage Vishwamitra made sure that the glory of Goddess Gayatri reaches people by performing rigorous penance.

 Lord Brahma Married Goddess Gayatri

Gayatri Mata is considered to be the wife of Brahma which is mentioned in a legend in religious texts, according to which, a very big Yagna was organized and Brahma Ji himself went to join that yagna. It is believed that if the married person is present with his wife in religious activities, then that work and worship becomes more auspicious and fruitful as they definitely turn out to be successful. But for some reason, Goddess Savitri, the wife of Brahma, was not present there at that time. Hence, Brahma ji had to join that Yagna, so he married Gayatri Mata, who was present then and there.

On the day of Gayatri Jayanti, people who have any problems related to Grahan Yoga, mental disturbance or the malefic effect of any planet are advised to perform some remedies. The ‘Gayatri’ (Gayatri Mantra) which is also called “Mahakali” is considered to be the power that pleases Shiva. 

If a person’s horoscope is inflicted with Kalsarp Dosh, Pitridosh, or Rahu-Ketu and Shani’s malefic effects, then the person is mentally distracted or disordered and he/she should definitely worship Lord Shiva along with chanting the Shiva Gayatri Mantra.
