Mantras of various deities

Now a days there are thousands of mantras available in all kinds of remedial books and magazines. The authenticity and the effectiveness of most of them is quite doubtful. Most of what we are reproducing below are from the book "Meditations from the Tantras" by Paramahamsa Swami Satyananda Saraswati, one of the greatest self realized yogis of our times and an acknowledged master of the tantra.

Gayatri Mantra: According to the Hindu scriptures Devi Gayatri is the Mother of the Vedas. It is said that even Trinities (Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva) worship her as their Mother. The Gayatri Mantra is the prescribed daily mantra for all Hindus and regarded as the remover of all sins and the bestower of all desired things. It is also part of the Sandhya Vandana. The sage Vishwamitra is given the credit for bringing Mother Gayatri to earth.

The following is the most commonly recited Gayatri Mantra.
