7-Mahaa Mrityunjaya Mantra-2
Discussion on Mahaa mrityumjaya <antra in Om Namah Shivaaya Group

The Mantra given on the previous page is actually the Mrityunjaya Mantra. The Mahaa Mrityunjaya Mantra consists of 6 Om. It is given below:
Om Haum Joom Sah, Om Bhoo Bhuvah Swah, Om Tryambakam Yajaamahe Sugandhim Pushtivardhanam
Urvaa Rukmiv Bandhanaan Mrityor Muksheeya Maamritaat Om Swah Bhuvah Bhoo Om Sah Joom Haum Om.

This is known as the Mahaa Mrityunjaya Mantra or as 'Mahaa Mrutyunjaya Mantra Shat Pranav, because Om comes in this Mantra 6 times in and so is treated as more powerful than 'Ek (single) Pranav Mahaa Mrityunjaya or Mrityunjaya Mantra. If you recite it in front of a phallic emblem of Shiv in a Shiv Temple, especially in front of a Jyotirling with real Rudraaksh beads, you generate tremendous positive energy. I recited it in Tryambakeshwar with my Rudraaksh Maalaa from the source of Godaavaree River   .....and I felt a surge of vibrations and energy.... that is the power of this Mantra and Rudraaksh.

I think this Mantra is in Samputikaa form and should not be chanted by everyone especially without proper initiation. Samputikaa Mantras are even more significant in this respect. Further, there are specific Vidhis (rules) to be observed in chanting such Mantra. Mantra Shaastra is very clear on this. No Mantra will work without initiation from a Guru- a realized soul. There are some books which have published this and other Mantra with scant regard for secrecy that should be observed as per Shaastra. There are some more more variations also of this Mantra, but all those Mantra are to be used only for specific purposes strictly after proper initiation and only when necessary.

All Mantra will not suit everybody. A learned person gave me a Mantra focused on a Jyotirling and the end result was it affected my health. Only later it dawned on me and another learned person advised me and taught me the reasons why it did not suit me. For the same reason that Mantra gave you such vibrations at Tryambakeshwar CAUTION: Do not chant any mantra without sanction from a Guru or a realized soul.

Somebody else writes that the Mahaa mrityunjaya Mantra goes like this --
Om Hreem Jus Bhoor Bhuvah Swaha Om Tryambakam ---------Maamritaat Bhoor Bhuva Swaha jus hreem Om.
not essentially........    It is given in the Rudra Yaamal that the Mahaa Mrityunjaya Mantra does not require any purity........ Any one can chant it. It is a gift by god to mankind need not be initiated by a Guru........ You read the first chapter of the Rudra Yaamal Uttar Khand.....  and you will come to know about it.....  Yes the Gayatri Mantra needs purity and takes a Jap of 10,000 times to get the Diddhi. If u believe in the Rudra.....  then read the Rudra Yaamal Tantra which is about Mantra and Tantra. Its synopsis is given on this website -
Pt Arjun writes
Any Mantra invoking god can be recited even without a Guru's Upadesh. However receiving or hearing the Mantra from an elderly or a learnt person (Guru) is beneficial for the native as he listens and assimilate the correct pronunciation.

There are some Vasheekaran, Mohan, Aakarshan, Stambhan, Vidweshan, Uchchaatan, Maaran Mantra (all Prayog Mantra) which shall not be used at all as they have negative boomeranging affect. even a Guru has no right to give these Mantra to his Shishya unless those help the society at large or root out the evil. they are generally given and used only to the King (Lord of the land) to protect the people in their kingdom. These days so many books went public with publishing all these secret Mantra which is bad.

The correct Mrityunjaya Mantra (prefixing Om). it would give result only after recital of 1 Laakh times continuously. It would give result only after recital of 1.20 Laakh times continuously. There are three Laghu (simple) Mrityunjaya Mantra :
1. om joom sah - give Siddhi after reciting 3 Laakh times
2. om haum joom sah - give Siddhi after reciting 4 Laakh times
3. om joom sah maam palaya palaya - give Siddhi after reciting 1.25 Laakh times

However, some learnt elders (Guru) say that due to Dharm running on 1 foot in Kali Yug compared to 4 legs in Satya Yug, the number
of Mantra recital should be three times more than what is prescribed above. besides the above, the biggest Mrityunjaya Mantra christened Mrit Sanjeevanee Vidyaa is there, but it is forbidden to pass this to public. Using this Mantra, sage Shukraachaarya (Daitya Guru) brought back to life several dead Raakshas. If a person is on the death bed or suffering from chronic disease and doctors have declared no chance,
then if we do Abhishekam with buttermilk (Chhaach) while reciting this Mantra, the person would regain his lost health soonest. However, immediately after this, the Shiv Ling shall be cleaned with water and then with pure Ganga Jal and then proper Rudraabhishek with cow milk shall also be done.
Although any Mantra  can be recited to invoke god without a Guru's Upadesh. but only Siddha Mantra are allowed that way. The Mrityunjaya
Mantra is fine, except that its Samputik form with the Vyaahriti(s) given is to be received from a Guru for results.

Quoting Rudra Yaamal is fine, but the same Rudra Yaamal also elaborates on the importance of Guru and initiation. Recite the Samputik Mantra with caution preferably on a Guru's advice or initiation.
We should not be daunted by the count, we should say as many as we can in a day comfortably, not forcing ourselves, even 3 a day is fine. As Mantra add up cumulatively it will help in the long run.
The Moorti who sits facing the South is called as Dakshinaamoorti. Why should the Lord sit facing the south? The answer is simple. Yam /Kaal /Mrityu /Death rules the South. The Indriyaan lead one to south. The life's flow leads people to the repeated cycles of birth and death. Bahirmukh Bhaavanaa comes automatically to the Jeev. This life leads through the gates of Indriyaan leads one to the abode of Yam. The moment the Jeev understands that the Almighty is sitting facing South the turn-around takes place. In order to understand the Almighty the Jeev has to face North/ turn inward. This means that the Jeev has to show the back to Yam. The moment the self-referral blessing is received the Jeev becomes Mrityunjaya. Gyaan never dies. This simple principle is taught by the Jyotish Shaastra as retrogression. Jal Tattwa helps sustenance and healing. Glorify the Jal principle by helping others with the facility of water, do Abhishek to Lord, chant
Om Namah Shivaaya Namo Mahaakaaleshwaraaya"
one more Mrityunjaya Mantra which reads like this is
Aum Mrityunjayaa Mahaadev Traahi Maam Sharnaaagatam,
Janma Mrityu Jaraavadhi peeditam Karm bandhanehi.
