Gayatri is a vedic hymn, which when recited takes away all our guilt and fear.

One day, Brahma was performing a crucial Yajna, which in order to be complete required his wife, Saraswati's presence, but she was nowhere to be found, Furious with her absence, Brahma asked the priest to go and fetch any woman for him to marry.

Brahma and GayatriThe priest went out and found a beautiful shepherdess. She was none other than the same holy hymn of Gayatri, which had transformed itself into a woman to help Brahma. Brahma married her and she became his second companion.

Gayatri is depicted as seated on a pink lotus. She has five heads, the first four representing the Vedas, while the last one represents Lord Brahma himself.
