Concept of Gayatri: In the Vedas & the Puranas

Prajna Paramita Das (Author)

Gayatri is the most popular meter in the ancient Vedic literature which through the passage of time assumed the distinction of a prominent deity in the later literature, especially in the Puranas. Besides the meter, Gayatri as a mantra itself which occurs in the Rgveda and other later Vedic texts is considered as the most sacred and powerful mantra and is often alluded as a wish-yielding tree for attainment of almost everything in life.

The author has made an endeavour to put all her epithets, effulgent lustrous beauty, powers bounteousness beginning from her origin, scattered in a vast arena of Vedic and Puranic literature, at one place for quenching the thirst of knowlede of scholars, as well as the devotees.
