I have recently discovered some facts about the Gayatri mantra
and was wondering if list members would have access to more

It seems the standard Gayatri mantra
"tat savitur vareNyam
bhargo devasya dhImahi
dhiyo yonaH prachodayat"
is placed under a curse. When we obtain this mantra
during the thread ceremony (upanayana) is the curse
removed ? Any more information available on this ?

Also there is an additional verse of 8 letters
making it a 32 lettered Gayatri. Is 32 lettered Gayatri
for a slect few ?
Any more information on the 32 lettered Gayatri that is
not considered "classified" information ?
(Until recently I had not even heard about the 32 lettered


Best regards
