Avani avattam

	Can someone please send me the postscript version (in tamil) of
the Avani avattam mantrams (which Mr. Ranga Sataagopan) posted a while 
ago. (I dont have the adami font with me and it will be easier for me
to read it in tamil!)

	Also, can someone clarify if we can say the Gayathri mantram
without its preceding mantrams, For instance can I just say the gayathri
everyday without all the slokas in the sandhyavandhanam. I have heard
people subscribing to both schools of thought. (the Gayathri mantram
can be said only after the proper invocation to Mother Gayathri has
been said before it vs. Gayathri mantram is powerful by itself without
any need for other slokas to precede it, etc...)
