Shiva Gayatri is one of the most powerful Gayatri Mantras. It is dedicated to Shiva (Siva, Rudra).
Shiva is the destroyer and the God of sexuality. As a destroyer, Shiva destroys all evils in the body and mind, thus purifying the aspirant. He also makes things clear in the mind which is a natural consequence of destruction of evil in body and mind. Since He is also the god of fertility and sexuality, chanting Shiva gayatri gives the aspirant to control baser instincts like desire for sex, etc.Worship of Shiva dates back to pre-Vedic and Vedic period. He is one of the most powerful forces controlling creation.
