About Goddess Gayathri:
Gayatri pervades everywhere. Gayatri consists of three deities, Gayatri, Savitri, and Saraswati. Of these, the first one is master of the sense, the second is the teacher of truth, and the third is the master of speech. Hence it is a Trinity of the senses, the mind, and speech. She is the Param Sakti (i.e., the sustaining Force that animates all life), the universal mother and the power of god manifestation. She is depicted as sitting on a lotus with the five faces (hence called the Punchamukhi) representing the panca pranas (five basic energy or life forms) and the panca tatwas (five elements) and the ten hands holding the various ayudas (weapons).
