This mantra is considered to be a medium developed by Prajapati, for communicating with the ever-lasting energy, Savitra power.
Mantra learned from a competent guru and practiced with faith and reverence leads to the fruits sooner or later. Results will be produced as soon as one pronounces the mantra.
