People are very curious about the Gayatri Mantra, but many do not have access to information on this. Many people know about ‘Om Tatsavituh’ or the Savit (Surya) Gayatri mantra. But a lesser known fact is that no less than 24 types of Gayatri mantras exist! Different deities have different types of Gayatri mantras.
Lord Rama is the seventh avatar of the Hindu God Vishnu. He is the central figure of the Hindu epic Ramayana, which is the principal narration of the events connected to his incarnation on earth, his ideals and his greatness. Rama is one of the many popular deities in Hinduism, and especially of the various Vaishnava sects.
Lord Rama who emerged on the Earth as a human being has showered mankind with numerous good things. Therefore reciting Rama Gayatri Mantra is beneficial for married couples and families for a prosperous and peaceful environment. It also helps one to overcome obstacles and dangers.
From the perspective of making attempts for God-realisation, the first stage is worship of the Kuladevata (Family Deity). Once that is accomplished, the spiritual practice of worshipping Shriram, who is true to His word, devoted to only one wife and who strikes the target with just one arrow, is useful to many seekers for going from many to one.
