(Reading, hearing or memorising the Great Names of Devi Gayatri with cleanliness of body and mind would indeed yield unimaginable fruits of destroying the gravest sins committed, ensuring prosperity and well being. Particularly significant are the eighth lunar days when the Gayatri Saharsanamas are rendered after one’s own daily Sandhya vandana, Dhyamam, Japam, Homam and absolute concentration and  commitment, on a strictly ‘Nishkama’ basis or without anticipations of results. Caution: only persons of  ‘Achara’ and dedication should have access to these Mighty and Highly Powerful  Mantras of Devi Gayatri.) [Essence of Devi Bhagavatam]
