The Dakshinamurthy Gayatri Mantra gives a person the ability to attain fulfillment in life with the guidance of a proper Guru. Lord Dakshinamurthy is an avatar of Lord Shiva in the form of a Guru (teacher). This mantra can also be chanted to overcome obstacles in education, accumulation of wealth, and marriage. Chanting this mantra will also increases one’s intelligence and mental sharpness.
Apart from that, individuals suffering from Navagraha Doshas (planetary afflictions), Shani Dosha, Guru Dosha, and those undergoing Guru Dasa and Guru Bhukthi can chant the Dakshinamurthy Gayatri Mantra to reduce and negate the evil effects of the planets. Those suffering from Pitru Dosha too can pray to Lord Dakshinamurthy.
Besides that, teachers, headmasters, principals, authors, novelists, designers, cartoonist, artists, journalists, publishers, astrologers, tutors, and those involved in the education as well as the creative industry can benefit greatly by chanting the Dakshinamurthy Gayatri Mantra on a daily basis. Students are also encouraged to chant this mantra on a daily basis to improve their intellectual ability and skills. Children suffering from low intelligent quotient (IQ), can be taught to chant this mantra as gradual improvements in their studies can be seen.
Dakshina also means South. Therefore, those who have Vastu defects in the Southern quadrant of their properties (house, business premise, et cetera) and are suffering due to the defects can benefit greatly by seeking the blessings of Lord Dakshinamurthy. Pregnant ladies can also constantly chant the Dakshinamurthy Gayatri Mantra for a safe delivery free from complications as well as for an intelligent and healthy baby free from diseases, defects, and astrological afflictions.
