The Gayatri mantra is one of the oldest and most powerful of Sanskrit mantras.
The Gayatri mantra is composed of a meter consisting of 24 syllables - generally arranged in a triplet of eight syllables each. Therefore, this particular meter (tripadhi) is also known as the Gayatri Meter or "Gayatri Chhanda."
