Gayatri Mantra-s on Various Gods ***Over 70 Gayatri Mantras*** ***Listen and Learn*** ***Unique Repeat Mode for easy learning*** If there is one chant in the vast compendium of ancient Indian scriptural tradition, that crystallises the essence of the entire Vedic tradition, it would be without doubt the Gayatri Mantra. The word "Gayatri" itself means, "that which protects the one who recites it." While the Vedic Gayatri mantra is known as the Mahagayatri, there are several adaptations of this mantra known as "shakha gayatri" to propitiate the different deities in the Hindu pantheon of Gods. These Gayatri Mantra-s are usually presented in sets of three lines, each culminating with the words, "vidmahe," "dhimahi" and "pracodayat" respectively. Each Gayatri mantra salutes a specific deity by referring to one attribute of that deity and seeks the benediction of that deity in removing our many problems and kindling the innumerable strengths that lie within. This iphone-ipad App, produced by Swathi Soft Solutions brings to you a compilation of over 70 Gayatri mantra-s honouring select deities grouped thematically across nine chapters.
The listener has the option of listening to the complete recitation of each mantra or using the repeat mode in which each line of the mantra is chanted with a sufficient pause inbetween to enable the listener to repeat that line. Hence, this App provides the user a simple and interactive means of learning to chant certain key Gayatri mantra-s. Also included in this App is the text of each mantra given in both Sanskrit and Roman transliteration. This App further gives the user the options of emailing and printing select portions, and creating and managing playlists.
