Krishna said in the Gita “aham Gayatri tvam mantra.” which means “Among all the Mantras, I am the Gayatri Mantra.”
oṃ bhur bhuvaḥ svaḥa
tát savitúr váren yaṃ
bhárgo devásya dhimahi
dhi yo yó naḥ pracodáyāt
Gayatri Devi is the creator (Brahma), protector (Vishnu) and destroyer (Shiva). She has all aspects of the creator, protector and destroyer in Her and all the weapons represent these Divine qualities, that we were just talking about. She is sitting on a red lotus, which symbolizes that She has the whole power (Parashakti). Her whip symbolizes the destruction of all the sins. Also the axe destroys the ego, pride and arrogance. She has a swan which symbolizes purity. It is the ultimate purity without any negativity, because She is the manifestation of Brahman Itself.
When you chant the Gayatri Mantra, it gives calmness to the mind and when the mind is calm, you will have peace
Five faces: Gayatri Devi has five faces, which symbolize the five elements. The whole Universe is bind by these five elements, but not everywhere it has these five elements in action.
Ten hands: She has ten hands, that are showing that She is ever ready to come to your help. The position of Her hands show “Don’t fear anything my children”. “I am a Mother. I am here always to protect you.” She will give you everything. Just by chanting the Mantra you will get everything what you want in life.
