Ma Gayatri is the consort of Lord Brahma, and she is the giver of knowledge, wisdom and spiritual enlightenment. By reciting Gayatri Ashtakam, also known as Gayatri Stotram, we would get goodness in our lives and all of our reasonable needs would be satisfied.
The contents present in the Gayatri Ashtakam are as follows:
I meditate on Ma Gayatri, Who is the consort of Lord Brahma, and who is worshipped by the saints and the sages, who gives good knowledge, who contains a beautiful face, who looks similar to the full moon, whose face shines like the sun, and who is the worshipper of Lord Vishnu, and who has five heads.
I meditate on Ma Gayatri, Whose body are filled up with flower garlands, and who contains wisdom and who blesses her sincere devotees.
I meditate on Ma Gayatri, who is also worshipped by the mighty demons like Prahalada and Vibhishana, and who is like Mother Earth, with regard to her patience, and whose vehicle is a beautiful swan.
