Gayatri Mantra was first recorded in the rig veda, the most ancient sanskrit text, and probably one of the most ancient in the whole world, estimated to be 2500 and 3500 years old.
There are 24 different Gayatri Mantras, but the main one and most popular is
Savitur Gayatri, derived from her name Savitri. Mother Divine in the form of Gayatri is called Vedmata, the mother of the Vedas.
Savitur is the name of both the Sun and the Divine Mother. The worship of the Sun is also worshiping Goddess Gāyatri. The Sun before sunrise is called Savitr, and after sunrise until sunset it is called Sūrya. Savitr is venerated in the RigVeda, the oldest component of the Vedic scriptures appearing in RV 3.62.10, from where it derives the Gayatri Mantra.
So this mantra venerates the Sun and the Divine Mother.
Gayatri is the source of light for consciousness, the origin of all our spiritual and intellectual knowledge.
As mantra practice, practicing it 108 times each day with a rudraksha mala is suggested.
At a more advance stage, you can also chant this mantra mentally wherever you are and whenever you find a quiet moment. A mantrin repeats the mantra as many as 125,000 to 2,400,000 times which takes around 3 years. Such sincere practitioners are extremely rare though in these days. But in India we have many... silently, hidden.
Traditionally the initiation to the Gayatri mantra would take place immersed in deep water. The guru would whisper the mantra to the mantrin. The old method of saying this mantra in the water is the best, because it is a heating mantra, so it heats up the whole system, and the water is able to support well in this practice.
Since it's not so easy nowadays to do this practice always in a river, one can also visualize it during the chanting.
All mantras connect the practitioner to the energy of the deity. That is why is is also very important to seek permission to the divine mother before undertaking Her sadhana. There are some rituals with more than thirty steps before beginning the Gayatri practice, but of course this is not so easy for many to learn and apply. At least, you can just say a beginning prayer to the Goddess before starting the Gayatri practice, "Om. I bow down to you, devi gayatri, the goddess of the Sun." You can have her image, give flowers, incense and light a candle while invoking her energy previous to the Gayatri practice.
Of course, in Mantra practice, it is KEY to have faith in the deity related to the Mantra.
ॐ भूर्भुवः स्वः
भर्गो देवस्य धीमहि
धियो यो नः प्रचोदयात् ॥
Oṃ bhūrbhuvaḥ svaḥ। tatsaviturvareṇyaṃ bhargo devasya dhīmahi। dhiyo yo naḥ pracodayāt॥
"We meditate on the glory of Savitur (the sun) who has produced this universe, who is the essence of our life existence; May we imbibe his divinity and brilliance within us."

The sages and elightened beings were the perceivers of these sounds. the sounds already exist in the sound-current, but they were recognized by the rishis... Gayatri Mantra was discovered by Sage Vishwamitra.
It is believed that Vishwamitra after long practice and sadhana discovered Gayatri mantra which according to him was not just a gift for himself but for the entire mankind.
Ultimately, the whole sadhana of Gayatri is to purify oneself. Though in this path there should never be any goals or expectations, through performing the mantra properly, an earnest meditator will notice the effects of the practice humbly and silently.
"GAYATRI AS IT IS SUPPOSED TO SOUND. Lots of versions in the west make you sleep... This interpretation of Gayatri Mantra is really up to the energy of this mantra's level ! It really brings out its power and lifts you up. It is great to start the day, for sun salutations, or for powerful mantra practice." Amazon DE

Not any Gayatri Mantra will work in your practice
Gayatri mantra is a mantra related to the Sun, the fire energy. Therefore, it has to carry the energy of its essence, it has to be representative of its nature. A mellow easygoing version of this mantra won't work for its purpose... you may enjoy it but just know it won't do its job.
That is why in India, Mantrins are trained by a Guru during years altogether to make sure the right practice is done. Mantra is not meant for entertainment, it never was and it will never be. Entertainment is great! but then there are other genres for that available.
the gayatri mantra has been chanted daily for thousands of years. In the old days, children were initiated with this mantra, and taught to say it every day for the rest of their lives.
Thank You to all the dear audiences around the world for your loving messages and your wonderful support.
