Maha Mrityunjaya Puja/Homa


Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra is the most powerful and oldest mantra of Indian Mythology and it belongs to Lord Shiva. The Mantra is actually combination of three words that have different meaning as “Maha” means ‘Great’, “Mrityun” leads to the word ‘Death’ and “Jaya” represents ‘victory’; as an combination of these three words it turns to ‘Victory over death’. It also known by the name of ‘Trayambakam Mantra’ or ‘Rudra Mantra’. This powerful mantra is said to be originated from Rishi Markandeya and it was first given to Sati (Youngest daughter of King Dakhsa) for saving life of Moon when it was in biggest trouble due to the terrible curse generated by King Daksha. Other story goes as follows ; Markandeya was a great devotee of Lord Shiva. His father Mrikandu performed rigorous austerities to get a son. Lord Shiva appeared before him and said: “O Rishi, do you want a good son who will die in his sixteenth year or a bad and foolish son who will live for a long time?” Mrikandu replied: “O my venerable Lord, let me have a good son”. The boy came to know about his fate and began to worship Lord Shiva whole-heartedly with intense faith and devotion. The boy entered into deep meditation and Samadhi on the day decreed as the day of his death. The messengers of Lord Yama were not able to approach him. Hence, Yama himself went to take away his life. The boy prayed to Lord Shiva for protection and embraced the Linga. Then Yama threw his noose round the Linga and the boy. Lord Shiva came out of the Linga immediately and killed Yama to protect the boy. Lord Shiva was called Mrityunjaya and Kala-kala from that day.


The complete mantra follows the sequence of words as “Om Trayambakam Yajamahe. Sugandhim Pushti Vardhanam, Urvarukmiv Bandhanat, Mriturmokshaya Mamratat” – that means “we are concentrating on our third eye that resides in the mid of two eyes and provides us real power to feel your presence. It brings peace, happiness and satisfaction in our life. We are well aware of the fact that immortality in this material world is impossible but we pray for Lord Shiva mercy and help so that we can transcend this world.
