The Gayatri Mantra is called king of all Mantra, Using Gayatri Mantra every knowledge can be achieved.

So why Gayatri Mantra is so much important and who had first given the Gayatri Mantra?

ॐ भूर्भुव: स्व: तत्सवितुर्वरेण्यं । भर्गो देवस्य धीमहि, धीयो यो न: प्रचोदयात् ।।

  • Lord Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita says "Gayatri chandasam aham" - (among the metres i am Gayatri). This itself is sufficient proof of this great mantra composed in the Gayatri metre(you can consider metre as something like a format). Please do search in Google for additional details. As of now, your question does not fit into the StackExchange format as this format does not encourage discussions..Please do ask this question in other forums for dicussions on this topic – Raghav Subramanian Nov 14 '14 at 18:44

Mother Gayatri is the GODDESS of knowledge and virtues. This mantra is specifically meant for Thapas (तपस; the highest of Tantras) as it increases the heat in the body burning up all muck at the physical level.

Who gave Gayatri Mantra?

Sage Vishwamitra when he composed Rigveda, he put this mantra in it.

Rig Veda 3.62.10 and Yajur Veda 36.3

Now there is no official record about how Vishwamitra got this mantra in Hindu scriptures.

    I think "Gayatri" in Gayatri mantra refers to the Gayatri meter, it is actually devoted to Lord Savitr, the Sun God. – MathGod Mar 20 '17 at 12:49
