Exaltations of Gayatri by Dignified Personalities

Lord Krishna, Bhagwat Geeta

बृहत्साम तथा साम्नां गायत्री छन्दसामहम् |
मासानां मार्गशीर्षोऽहमृतूनां कुसुमाकर: || 35||

Brihat-sama tatha samnam gayatrī chhandasam aham |
Masanam marga-shīrsho ham ritunam kusumakarah ||

Of the Sam-Veda hyms, I am the Brihat-Sam, among the mantras, I am the Gayatri, among the months, I am the month of Fall and among the seasons, I am the Spring. 

Lord Krishna, Bhagwat Geeta  (Chapter 10, verse 35)

Jagat Guru Shankaracharya:

It is beyond human competence to describe the glory of Gayatri. Nothing is more important in the world than to attain spiritual wisdom, which is inspired by Gayatri Sadhana. Gayatri is the primordial mantra. Its sadhana destroys sins and promotes virtues.

Yogiraj Yagnyavalkya :

Gayatri is the mother of Vedas, it destroys sins and there is no other greater purifying mantra than Gayatri on this earth as well as in the heavens. Just as there is no better place of a pilgrimage than Ganga, there is no mantra superior to Gayatri mantra. The one who masters Gayatri becomes master of all knowledge. A dwij who is not devoted to Gayatri is like a shoodra. He who does not know Gayatri gets deprived of Brahmantva and becomes sinful.
