Srimathe Ranga Ramanuja Mahadesikaya Namah

Dear Bhaktas,

Adiyen was reading a book titled "The Great Science & philosophy of
Gayatri" and adiyen wanted to share with the members the Glory of this
great mantra.

Gayatri has been called as Spiritual Triveni. The meeting of Ganga and
Yamuna creates an invisible subtle divine river which is known as
Saraswati and the confluence of these three is known as Triveni.

On account of Triveni, Prayag is called king of all theerthas.  In the
same way, Gayatri is triveni of Spiritual World.  Its first letter 'Ga'
is suggestive of Ganga, second letter 'ya'is suggestive of yamuna and
third letter 'tri' is suggestive of Triveni.  

This shows the importance of Gayatri Mantra and Sandhya Vandanam in our
daily life.

Repetion of this mantra with faith and devotion is equal to having a dip
in the Holy river Ganga, Yamuna and Triveni.
