महा मृत्युंजय मंत्र Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra

images-3The Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra is a beautiful and powerful meditation mantra. With the epithet “three-eyed one”, this mantra addresses the god Rudra, the fierce and destructive aspect of Shiva. The transformative vibrations of this mantra can assist us in overcoming illness, mental and physical, and promote rejuvenation, healing, and longevity. But, more importantly, this mantra is sung to conquer death and bring us immortality – not immortality of the physical body, but of the soul, the Self. It invokes Rudra, the destroyer of the ego, to strengthen (nourish) us through the process of transformation towards greater awareness. The Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra is a prayer for moksha, spiritual liberation.

महा मृत्युंजय मंत्र:  

ॐ त्र्यम्बकम् यजामहे 

सुगन्धिम् पुष्टि वर्धनम्

उर्वारुकमिव बन्धनान्

मृत्योर्मुक्षीय मा ∫ मृतात्

Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra:

Om tryambakam yajaamahe 

sughandim pushti vardhanam

urvaarukamiva bhandhanaan

mrityormukshiya maamritaat

The Great Death-conquering Mantra:

We meditate on (worship) the three-eyed one (Rudra/Shiva)

Who is fragrant and nourishes fully all beings

Bound down like a cucumber (bound to the body/physical world)

May he liberate us from death with immortality (amrita, the immortal nectar)

    Lovely. I couldn’t play the video, but went to YouTube and had another adventure. Joy is so wonderful to hear. Happiness really isn’t complicated, is it?

    Thanks for the good read. It’s neat to see the additions of video for your Tarot Tuesday, too. You’re very generous with your gifts. (good for you.)

  2. Oh YESSSS. I am fierce lover of Shiva, and Rudra is such a powerful aspect. All of Rig Veda is so powerful. Thank you!

    beautiful sounds
    to blog through this moment 🙂

    • Don’t know why he’s there, but 🙂

      • Thank you for posting this mantra! It’s beautiful. Just what I needed 😉 Also, this one is familiar from a “Dancing with Shiva” album that I really had gotten into back in 2007. At the time, I wasn’t aware of ‘why’ I was resonating so deeply with it – but given my personal Vedic astrology, it makes sense! _/1\_
