Q.6. How many “Onkars” are included in the Gayatri Mantra?

Ans.  Gayatri Mantra is complete in itself. It is not at all necessary to supplement it by assigning three or five ‘Oms’ by way of  beej Mantra or samput. This is done only in the Tantrik system. The common man should not  bother about some odd references in scriptures which justify prefixing, inter-fixing or suffixing more than one Onkars (Om) with the  Gayatri Mantra The practice of using more than one  Onkar was probably adopted by different sects as a mark of distinction (as followers of various sects use uniform, Tilak chhap marking on forehead etc. to identify themselves).  

The standard Guru-Mantra, Gayatri comprises of three Vyahritis and three phrases of eight letters each pre-fixed by Om. Om is in fact, a symbol of reverence preceding all Ved Mantras, as Mr., Mrs., Miss, etc. are prefixed to the names of persons. However, there is no restriction in using more than one  Onkars though the standard practice of pre-fixing one Onkar (Om) is recommended for maintaining uniformity.
