Mahamrutyunjay Mantra

What is the Mahamrutyunjay Mantra?

It is Lord Shiva’s Mantra who is also known as Rudra. It is a Rucha, in Rudra Sukta of the seventh Mandal in Rigved. It is present in Yajurved as well. 

It is said that this old Hymn was known to only Saint Markandeya through the blessing of Lord Shiva. But afterwards, Lord Shiv taught it to Shukracharya for use in Sanjivani Mantra. 

Sanjivani Mantra is known to have been used to resurrect dead people. Very powerful indeed.

So here is the Mahamrutyunjay Mantra:

ॐ हौं जूं सः ॐ भूर्भुवः स्वः |

Om houm joom sah Om bhur bhuvah swah

ॐ त्र्यम्बकं यजामहे सुगन्धिं पुष्टिवर्धनम् |

Om trayambakam yajamahe sugandhim pushtivardhanam 

उर्वरुइकमिव बन्धनान् मृत्योर्मुक्षीय मामृतात्

Urvaarukam-Iva Bandhanaan Mrtyor-Mukssiiya Maamrtaat

ॐ स्वः भवः भूः ॐ सःजूं हौं ॐ 

Om Swahv Bhavah Bhuh Om  Sah Joom Haum Om



English Translation - 

Om houm joom sah Om bhur bhuvah swah Om trayambakam yajamahe sugandhim pushtivardhanam oorvarukmiva bandhnaan mrityormukshiya maamritaat Om swah bhuvah bhuh

Om sah joom houm Om...


Meaning: 

Oh Lord Rudr,who gives strength to our body, mind and soul, who illuminates the universe with three divine eyes and who exists in all three lokas – hell, heaven and earth,we pray to you with all the fragrance.


To Avoid That, Practice The Following Rules Strictly:

  • Concentration is of quintessential importance when chanting. There should be no other thoughts in your mind when you are dedicating your attention to this Mantra.
  • You should get rid of all evil thoughts in your mind. These include hate, anger, jealousy and most importantly, let go of your ego. This is very important to make it work.
  • If you are chanting for somebody’s health, security from accidents or peaceful death you should have true love for that person. Just chanting mechanically will not work.
  • You should link your heart with your voice and thoughts, so that the frequencies generated while chanting will create a pure divine atmosphere, giving you the desired results.
  • The sanctity of the place where you chant and of your own as well should be utmost necessary.
  • Before you begin, you should have a clean bath.
  • Ladies should not chant in their monthly cycle or such lady should not be around the chanting place.
  • It should be recite either 108 times, 1008 times or 1,25,000 times.

Adverse Effects, if not Chanted Properly

  • Eating spicy or junk food increases the heat and impurities in the body. Since it creates a lot of heat in the body, the additional heat from these types of foods will attract all sorts of undesirable diseases like Typhoid, Mumps, Venereal diseases, etc.
  • Wrong pronunciation will result in nervousness and hallucinations.
  • These are just some of the adverse effects. Things can get a lot worse if seriousness is taken for granted in this matter.

So you should not attempt to do this on your own. Learn the Mantra from a proper guru who has dedicated his life towards the divine cause. Also you can use our MP3 to learn it properly.
