    The first letter of every 1000th Shloka of the Ramayana together make up the Gayatri Mantra! There are 24 letters in the Gayatri Mantra and there are 24,000 Shlokas in the Valmiki Ramayana. The first letter of every 1000th Shloka together of the Ramayana forms the Gayatri Mantra, making this revered mantra the essence of the epic. While the Gayatri Mantra has been actually first mentioned in the Rig Veda, it has gained significance thanks to the Ramayana. Source: Shri Vishal Kamlani who is a writer for youth connect.
