Gayatri mantra – 24 syllables and Governing Devatas

 

  1. Nagarajan

 

The Gayatri mantra consists of 24 syllables.

 

The Tantra Sara of Madhwa  indicates that these 24 letters are called Varnas.

 

The Tantra Sara sloka describes thus:-

 

Veda mata tu gayatri dvikunana dvadashaksharan

Chathurvishathi murthiyosya kathitha varnadvatha

 

These 24 Varnas have corresponding governing forms of God – viz Kesava upto Srikrishna.

 

Given below is the list of governing devatas of the 24 syllabels.

 

T             kesava

Tsa          Narayana

Vi            Madhava

Tuh         Govinda

Va          Vishanu

Re           Madhusudna

NI           Trivikrama

Yam        Vamana

Bha          Sridhara

Rgo          Hrisikesa

De            Padmanabha

Va            Damodara

Sya           Sankarsna

Dhi           Vasudeva

Ma            Pradyumna

Hi             Aniruddha

Dhi           Pusushottama

Yo           Adoksaja

Yo           Narasimha

Nah          Aeyuta

Pra           Janardana

Cho          Upendra

Da            Hari

Yat           Srikrishna

 

So one who recites Gayatri mantra automatically worships all the 24 devatas..

 

Gayatri Varnamala Stotram  indicates the colour of each varna and the good effects of chanting these letters
