For (Laghu)Small Anusthan— 24000 Japs to be completed in 9 days at the rate of 27 cycles of rosary per day. Time taken: on an average, 3 hours per day (with about 10 to 11 Malas per hour)
Queries about Anushthan-
“Gayatri Mantra Lekhan Sadhana” (Orderly pursuit of writing Gayatri Mantra)
When people take up writing of Gayatri Mantra, one count of writing amounts to 10 counts of mantra-japa. We all could definitely benefit by taking up the Sadhana of Gayatri Mantra Lekhan in this special time, Mantra-Writing-sadhana starts infusing the essence (तत्वज्ञान) of the 24 letters of the Gayatri-mantra, into the consciousness of Sadhak.It awakens 24 divine qualities in the individual. These qualities manifest as various accomplishments and prosperity in ones life.
Disciplines to be followed while writing the Gayatri Mantra :
1. Write the Gayatri Mantra with prayer filled feeling and focus on it’s meaning.
2. Don’t hurry up! Write the mantra slowly at a steady pace.
3. Write the mantra clearly and correctly.

Gayatri Chalisa Anusthan–
All 9 Days, after performing shat-karma, Ahavan, panchopchar pooja, you have to do 12 repetitions of Gayatri Chalisa every day. After 9 days it will become 108. You can do it in different times but Morning time (Brahm Muhurat) is the best time to do any kind of Sadhna, Anusthan. At the end you have to do Surya Arghya daan.
