Are there any adverse effects if mistakes made in mental reciting of gayatri mantra while doing daily chores?

  • Are you talking about mistakes in pronunciation or something else?

  • Regular work doesn't effect if you are chanting mantras by oral or else mental reciting. If you made mistakes intentionally in any other forms/object, definitely it will effect your daily works in any other forms.

As per shastras, there are no Doshas in mental recitation. yes Vachik(verbal) and Upanshu(tongue moves with lips closed) have doshas in case of mispronunciation etc. Mansik( mental) recitation is free from all, any place/ any time and any state, this mantra can be recited. However this mantra as per my experience does create vibrations and has powers, kindly do it under guidance of a Guru/ pandit/ or a sage. No spiritual practice should be started by reading books or watching any video. one will not get any benefits. understand the meaning of the mantra, learn the procedure of shudhikaran(cleansing) and then start. May Maa Gayatri enlighten our intellect
