Mahamrityunjaya Mantra for freedom, peace and healing
Chanted by Swami Kriyananda in ancient Sanskrit
OM Triambakam yajamahe sugandhim
pushti vardhanam urvarukam eva bhandhanan
mrityo mukshiya mamritat AUM.
Translation: We worship that One of divine vision who nourishes all living beings. May he free us from death and grant us immortality.
For millennia the Mahamrityunjaya Mantra has echoed down the banks of the holy river Ganges. The Mahamrityunjaya Mantra is chanted as part of the vedic fire ceremony for freedom from all bondage. This is a mantra of power. Mahamrityunjaya is chanted for healing of body, mind, and spirit, to ward off death, disease, and danger of all kinds. It protects and releases one from negativity. The energy released radiates peace and healing throughout the world.
We chant it, along with the Gayatri Mantra, every Sunday before our Ananda Sunday Service. This is a beautiful recording of Swami Kriyananda chanting the mantra 7 times, to the electronically multiplied sound of 120 tambouras (the Indian musical drone). This version has the ‘seal of approval’ of some pundits in India who listened to Kriyananda chant the mantra. You can find a CD of it being chanted 108 times here.
Here is the Gayatri Mantra Arati.
