Gayatri Mantra is to be chanted by a brahmachari or grihastha who adorn yagnopaveedam. Women neither should hear the mantra nor recite. If they do so what re the consequences? Nowadays ringtone has gayatri mantra which is so ridiculous. Any quotes from puranas substantiating about gayatri mantra.

  • @Mani--In the five answers no puranic evidence is quoted. You yourself has asked about puranic referrals. Now screaming it is duplicate. I have edited the question. Suppressing the question at all points to block the solution so that anybody will not develop their knowledge. Aug 29 '16 at 10:51

  • You enquire with any matathipathis who knows about sastras. You will come to know. There are stipulated reasons that women should not recite or hear Gayatri mantra. You cheka and come. Aug 29 '16 at 12:31

    @Rickross--I am asking the consequences from the scriptures--again u r bouncing. At least u accepted u do not know. In my house elders used to say women should not recite gayatri mantra when I was young. I cannot understand the reason why they told. But even my acharyas [ahobila mutt jeers] told that women should not recite gayuatri mantra. Aug 30 '16 at 4:57
