  2. Sahasra Gayathri Japam at West Mambalam on every Anusham Star.
    I am happy to share with you…that a Hindu Temple in USA, Ohio State, cincinnati
    has been organising a sahasra Gayatri Samashti japam, every month , in the
    temple Hall, on a Sunday morning. About 50 people participate to chant .
    This is floolwed by a community Lunch. Participants bring one dish and it
    becomes a variety entertainment Lunch. My son in law is a regular participant in chanting
    There is a leader to chant the Gayatri in 5 syllubles and others follow the same
    repeating every time.
    Hope this attempt in West Mambalam will be extended to other cities as well throughout India, to propagate Gayatri japam.
    This info. is coming to us in the wake of Aavani Avittam. Hope all observe
    Gayatri japam in the proper manner.
    Vedanarayanan. Pune.

    • Gayatri Japam should be done as Maanaseekam (Best benefit), Upamsu (medium benefit) and generally NOT as a Vaikari (loud chanting). Why should one person say it loud and others repeat? Is n’t each individual know the mantra? One should chant it in silent mode.
