Gāyatrī Mantra, also known as the Sāvitri Mantra, is a highly revered mantra from the Rig Veda - Mandala 3.62.10, composed and collected between 1500–1200 BCE - and dedicated to the Vedic deity Savitr. Gayatri Mantra is used as a method of prāyaścitta (atonement). It is believed by practitioners that reciting the mantra bestows wisdom and enlightenment, through the vehicle of the Sun (Savitr), who represents the source and inspiration of the universe.
