Q.5 Does Gayatri Mantra conform to the rules of Sanskrit Grammar?

Ans. At times points are raised about supposed grammatical inaccuracies in the composition of Gayatri Mantra. These misconceptions arise when the Shrutis (Richas of Vedas and Upnishads) are studied and evaluated as literary, human creations. Unlike the religious books and teachings of the Rishis compiled as Smritis, Puranas, Tantras etc., Shrutis are considered eternal divine revelations (A- paurusheya) dealing with inter-relationship of soul and God. Thus, Shrutis are not meant for literary comprehension and intellectual dissertations. Their compilers had explicitly stated that in order to understand and experience the mysteries of Vedas (i.e. Shrutis), it is essential to have adequate exposure to various related scriptural texts, commentaries of seers, interaction with seer scholars and above all the grace of God, This alone can purify the soul, making it receptive to the supreme wisdom revealed in the shrutis.

It is, thus, irrefutable that the Vedas (which include the Gayatri Mantra) are not governed by the laws of Sanskrit Grammar, which is a product of human endeavour and came into existence at a much later stage in human evolution.
