Mahamrityunjaya Mantra: Most powerful Healing Mantra

Mrityunjaya MantraMaha Mrityunjaya - the most powerful mantra for healing is the Mantra dedicated to Lord Shiva. It was originally found in the Rig Vedas as the strongest mantra conquering death. This particular Mantra has various names and forms; one of them is Rudra mantra that's Shiva's most furious form. The other one is Tryambakam mantra, referring to Shiva's three eyes. It is also referred to as Mrita Sanjivini Mantra as its main component is immortality. Rishis acclaim it as Veda's Heart.

For it has very powerful healing nature, this Mantra holds a really high position among all Mantras. The purpose of chanting this Mantra is mainly concerned with conquering spiritual death and not physical death. It helps attain Moksha.
|| OM triyambakam yajmahe sugandhim pushTivardhanam,

urvrukamiva bandhann mrrityormokshiya mmrritt ||

We worship the pleasant-smelling three eyed lord- Shiva who provides nourishment to all the living beings, while praying him, we bespeak of a prosperous & healthy life & liberation from death. Death here is just not physical death but spiritual death. (Moksha)

This combination words Maha, Mrityun & Jaya entails a deeper meaning that says Victory over Mrityun (Death).

Lord Shiva is popularly known as tryambakam, the one whose third eye opened because of continuous and profound contemplation by the powers of meditation & Japa. While he was into deep meditation, he experienced spiritual awakening & for the same reason his third eye was opened. So, as we pray to lord Shiva while reciting the Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra, we seek spiritual awakening. This Mantra holds strong power to even get back life to a dead person. By regular chanting of this Mantra with full devotion, one can also be guarded from untimely demise, critical illnesses & diseases & evil spirits.

Story behind Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra:

Once a sage named Mrikandu with his wife named Marudmati went into deep meditation seeking the blessing of Lord Shiva desiring a son. When lord Shiva was pleased by the devotion he granted the couple the desired boon which came with a condition. The condition was to get a son who’s foolish & who shall live for a long life or to get a level headed son whith a short span of life. Out of two, the couple accepted the boon with condition that had a short life for their son.

They soon had a son born shortly who was named Markandeya. Sage Mrikandu & wife Marudmati were always worried & day by day as their son was growing, they were sadder as they thought his life is nearing death. Markandeya on his 16th birthday realized there is something suspicious about his life that the parents are trying to hide. After his insisting to the parents he got to know the story behind his birth. Markandeya being a firm believer of Lord Shiva started chanting the great Maha Mriyunjaya Mantra with full devotion seated in front of a Shivling.

And the day arrived when Yamraj got in to take away Markandeya with him. Markandeya unwilling to go embraced the shivling while chanting the Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra & held the Shivling tightly with his arms wrapped around it. Lord Yamraj while trying to catch hold of Markandeya slipped the noose which accidentally caught hold of the shivling which made the three eyed lord- great Shiva extremely angry. Lord Shiva appeared and out of anger killed Lord Yamraj.

Death of Yamraj led to mayhem across the universe, looking upon such disturbance and needless violence, all other devtas requested Lord Shiva to revive Lord Yamraj. Lord Shiva accepted the request on the condition that Markandeya shall remain alive & untouched forever. Later Markandeya became known Sage & is believed to be alive even today.

The very natural consequence spiritual awakening through practice of meditation with the Japa of Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra frees one from the vicious cycle of rebirth & death & the devotee attains Moksha.

Literal Mahamrityunjaya meaning:

  •  aum = Absolute reality, a sacred/mystical syllable in Sanatan Dharma
  •  tryambakam = the three-eyed one
  • = tri + ambakam = three + eye
  • yaj?mahe = We worship, adore, honour, revere
  •  sugandhim = sweet smelling, fragrant
  • i = A well-nourished condition, thriving, prosperous, fullness of life
  •  vardhanam = One who nourishes, strengthens, causes to increase health, wealth & well-being
  •  = pushti+vardhanam = anena tat (samas)= The one who nourishes someone else and gives his life
  • urvarukam-iva = like the cucumber or melon (in the accusative case); or like a big peach.
  •  bandhanan = "from captivity" {i.e. from the stem of the cucumber} (of the gourd); (the ending is actually long a, then -t, which changes to n/anusvara because of sandhi)
    Note: bandhan?n means bound down. Thus, read with urv?rukam iva, it means 'I am bound down just like a cucumber (to a vine)'. If you read it with m?tyormuk??ya it means 'liberate from the bounds of death'.
  •  mrutyormukshya = Free, liberate From death
  •  = m?tyo? + muk??ya= from death + free (Vedic usage)
  • can be translated in a number of different ways:
     = m? + am?t?t = not + immortality, nectar
     Translation would be: (Free me from death but) not from immortality.
     = m? (short form of m?m) + am?t?t = myself + immortality
    = m? (short form of m?m) + am?t?t = myself + sure, definitely

When Maha Mrityunjaya chanted with full devotion, protects one from the accidents, uncertain calamities and various incurable diseases. It holds great curative effect. Even the diseases gauged incurable by doctors are cured by chanting of this Maha Mantra.

Just one round (one rosary, mala) of this mantra starts giving desired results. This mantra can be chanted any time of the day. The mantra can be chanted alone, individually. It can also be chanted in small groups sitting in a circle. However, it is most powerful when chanted in large groups sitting in even, orderly rows. It is most beneficial when performed on an empty or at least half-empty stomach. It is best to use your japa mala, but any other mala of your choice can also be used. The mantra is chanted 108 times in a constant fixed rhythm.

When finished chanting, sit back & relax for some time in profound silence and you will get aware of the protective psychic energy field which is created around you with the chanting of the Mahamrityunjaya mantra.

May the Mahamrityunjaya mantra uplift your life and help you overcome all the obstacles & hurdles that come in your life.
