Samaranganasutradhara identifies Saavitr as, 'Gayatri, the mother of Vedas. Goddess Gayatri is considered the Veda-mata, mother of all the Vedas. She is Saraswati, mother and source of all the knowledge and the embodiment of pure knowledge. Gayatri is the feminine form of gayatra, a Sanskrit word for a song or a hymn. Gayatri is the name applied to the most sacred Vedic hymn consisting of twenty-four syllables.
Goddess Gayatri is the Gayatri mantra personified. She is seated on a red lotus, signifying wealth. She has five heads (Mukta, Vidruma, Hema, Neela and Dhavala) with ten eyes looking in eight directions plus the earth and sky. The four heads of Gayatri represent the four Vedas and the remaining one represents the Almighty Lord himself. In her ten hands she holds all the weapons of Lord Shiva ) Lord Vishnu and Lord Brahma. She is also accompanied by a white swan, holding a book to portray knowledge in one hand and a cure in the other as the Goddess of education.
Importance of Gayatri is also found in Shrimadbhagvad Geeta, where Lord Krishna says, "Of Vedic rhythms I am the Gayatri". This hymn is addressed to god Surya (Sun) as the supreme generative force. On translation this hymn means, 'We meditate on that glorious light of the divine Surya (Sun)', may He, the lord of light, illuminate our minds. It is ordained that repeating this hymn again and again leads to salvation.

One thing we should understand that in Sanskrit by putting vowel 'a' after the first consonant, the word then represent the Offspring of the first. Like Vasudev and Vaasudev etc. In Mahabharat, Karn is also called by the name Saavitra.
As per Sanskrit Dictionary - Saavitra means 'Descended from the sun, belonging to the solar dynasty (of kings); यत् सावित्रैर्दीपितं भूमिपालैः' - An embryo or a foetus. The sacrificial thread; जनेऊ - (शान्तिहोमांश्च कुर्वीत सावित्राणि च धारयेत्) – (Mahabharat) Saavitra is the name of one of the eleven Rudras, Saavitra is also the name of an Auspicious Muhurt.
After the Life Force, the Pran Shakti is re-established, Saavitra activates the five Karmendriyas towards action. Savita/Savitra is the Mother figure and Saavitra is the one who operates the life force in the Embryo and causes the creation of body parts.
Savitr and Saavitra along with it's expansion Padas are good for newly wed couples and/or for ladies desiring motherhood.
