Rishi Vishvamitra is the chief worshipper of Gayatri Mantra.

The Gavatri Mantra is addressed to the energy of the Sun, Surya. OM is the sacred salutary introduction in every mantra, shloka. The first part of the mantra is the respectful address to the Gods of Earth Sky and Heaven. The second part is the submission that we pray meditate upon You Gods. The third part relates to prayer to illuminate our Mind, Heart and the Soul.
