 dear sriman ramesh,

in srivaishnavism, ashtAksharI mahAmantra, dvayam and chrama sloka are the most imp mantras. unlike gayatri, these can be recited by anybody irrespective of gender or caste.
gayatri mantra is also about Srimannarayana as antaryAmi of sUrya.

several elders consider ashtakshari to be the mother of all mantras. 

one becomes a SV only after getting initiated into these three mantras. on the other hand, gayatri mantra is common for all dvijas.

>I have a doubt reg. gayatri mantra. we know it is one of the most sacred of all the mantras. Now i request you to kindly explain its significance as per sri vaishnavite sampradaya and also how the SUPREME LORD sriman narayana is related to gAyatrI mantrA.
