The Gayatri Mantra is one of the oldest mantras of which we are aware. It honors the sun and all the life-giving energy, heat, and light the sun offers. "Gayatri" refers to the meter of the verse .  It means 24.  After the initial call to earth, sky, and heavens, the next three lines are of eight beats each, equalling 24.  Hear the chant and learn the words here.
