Maha Mrutyunjaya Mantram

Maha Mrutyunjaya Mantram

Mrutyunjaya Maha Mantram

When a fruit is cut from a plant, a drop or two of the sap is released from the cut stem. However when a ripe fruit drops from the tree, there is no sap released, the fruit renders itself for others to enjoy itself and voluntarily detaches itself from the tree.
This is the essence of the Maha Mrutyunja Mantram.

When chanting the Mrutyunjaya maha mantram, one asks for the avoidance of the untimely death but just not death. Untimely death causes several hardships in the family,hence oh Lord please grant me death at a time when  I am done with my worldly duties.

The Maha Mantram is known to be a powerful one and is suggested to
recite atleast 3 times before leaving the house followed by the Shanti
mantram for a safe return.

Om Tryambakam Yajamahe
Sugandhim Pushthi Vardhanam
UrvaRukamiva Bandhanat
Mrytyor Muksheeya Mamritat ||

Shanti Mantram

oṃ pūrṇamadaḥ pūrṇamidam pūrṇāt pūrṇamudacyate
pūrṇasya pūrṇamādāya pūrṇamevāvaśiṣyate
oṃ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ

The “pujari” in the temple says this when offering “Teertham”

Akala mrutyu haranam, sarva vyadhi nivaranam
samastha papa kshaya karam, sri uma maheswara
or Lakshmi narayana padodakam pavanam subham.

Let thy be cleared of untimely death and ill health, let all your sins
be cleared at the holy feet of Uma Maheswara.


  1. Very nice, hopefully she will forget the horror scenes soon.

  2. My elder daughter (10Yrs) is not able to sleep properly because she has seen few scenes of a horror movie in her friend’s house. I am using this mantram for her peaceful sleep.I switch on the mantra and let it chant for 10minutes and she sleeps peacefully with out any thoughts or bad dreams.Of course she learned a good lesson not to see that kind of movie again

  3. Very impressive and convincing.
