ॐ त्र्यंम्बकं यजामहे सुगन्धिं पुष्टिवर्धनम्
उर्वारुकमिव बन्धनान् मृत्योर्मुक्षीय मा मृतात्
समस्त संसार के पालनहार
तीन नेत्रो वाले शिव की हम आराधना करते है
विश्व मे सुरभि फैलाने वाले भगवान शिव
मृत्यु न कि मोक्ष से हमे मुक्ति दिलाएं
Mahamrityunjaya Mantra is the most powerful of all ancient Sanskrit mantras.
It is a mantra that has many names and forms. It is called the Rudra mantra, referring to the furious aspect of Shiva. The Tryambakam mantra refers to Shiva’s three eyes. Sometimes it is known as the Mrita-Sanjivini mantra because it is a component of the “life-restoring”. This mantra was practiced by Shukra, primordial sage, after completion of a gruelling period of sternness. The Mahamrityunjay mantra is summoned by the sages as the heart of the Veda.
Mahamritunjay jaap anustan is done for a long and healthy life. It is chanted to remove prolonged sickness especially for those on their death bed.
Meaning of Mahamrityunjay Mantra: It is important to understand the meaning of the words. It is because the words make repetition meaningful and brings forth positive results.
