Goddess Gayatri is the female personification of Gayatri Mantra or the Mula Mantra, as it is the most basic mantra in Hinduism to attain ideal perfection. She is opined to be a shepherdess incarnated as Goddess Saraswati and was married to Lord Brahma so that he could complete his ritual effectively; this patroness of knowledge, art, and wisdom sits here on a beautifully bloomed double lotus pedestal in her lalitasana, having five heads, ten arms and two legs.
This Mother of Vedas (Vedmata) carries conch, lotus, trident, disc, goad, noose, a manuscript, a jar of ambrosia with the left hand in abhaya mudra and right in varada mudra respectively; five cosmic heads represent the five celestial elements (pancha tattvas)- air, water, fire, earth, and sky.
Immensely treasured in multiple jewels of varied sizes, shapes, and designs, Goddess Gayatri wears her beautiful sari that forms alluring thin pleats that seem to be settled at their places with the identical crowns on all five heads sculpted in an elegant richness glorify her persona; representing combined strength and wisdom of the three goddesses, Gayatri Mata is extolled for her ravished form in the sacred Gayatri Mantra.
