About the Art

Seated on a lotus close to a white swan, Gayatri is the mother of the four sacred Vedas hence also referred to as Vedamata. Her five heads represent the five elements (tatva) and energies (prana) in the colors of white, red, yellow, blue and green portrayed in a quality of brightness. In her ten hands, she holds various implements to provide deliverance from suffering due to ignorance, infirmity and deficiency. Her mantra is known to be the most chanted and popular mantra in Hinduism.
