Gayatri Mantra - Mindboggling interpretation!

I recently read an article recently from a reputed Guru who said something like -"Gayatri mantra has maximum effect if it is chanted in the mornings". It turns out, there are many such Gayatri (or sing-able) mantras in the Vedas dedicated to different deities, and the one popularly referred to here is towards Savitr (Sunrise or the sun light at dawn). The meaning of the hymn is essentially "...We meditate on that which gave us this morning light, may that illuminate our intellect..."

So, its like saying Good Morning has maximum effect if it is said in the morning! It's amazing how Gurus can attract crowds with such simple interpretations!
