Gayatri Mantra Ghana Patha

Ghana Paatha (literally "dense recitation") is the very complicated, but very delightful, sentence structure where the Vedic mantra should be chanted in combinations when each ghana turn itself contains. So, if the original order of words in a sentence is: 1/2/3/4/5  - the ghana recital goes as follows:
45/54/45/ and so on...
