Chant: "Maha Mrityunjaya" by Rod Stryker

"Oh Three-eyed Siva,

Your fragrant Presence suffuses and nourishes all three realms- physical, mental and spiritual.

Oh Lord Siva, free me from the death-grip of fear, as the ripe fruit is liberated from the vine,

So I may taste the Bliss of Eternity."

How To Practice

The Maha Mrityunjay is a mantra that is said to rejuvenate, bestow health, wealth, a long life, peace, propsperity and contentment. The Mantra is a centuries old technique of connecting one to pure consciousness and bliss.

After getting settled and ready to practice MahaMrityunjaya, dedicate some other time thinking about the people or situation you're repeating the mantra for and imagine him/her/them completely free from their problems.

Now let every thought go and start repeating the mantra; this can be done silently, whispered or aloud, with japa mala (counting beads) or without.

Please, do not strain! You don't have to repeat continuously for 24 hours! Simply repeat for a period suitable for you! 15 minutes is good. If you can stand and afford it...half an hour is very good! But please.. do not exaggerate!

Maybe during repetition many thoughts will come and go through your mind; just don't worry about it; it's really a normal thing to have a perturbed mind.

When you finish repeating the mantra simply sit for a few minutes calmly, and feel the effects and vibrations in your body and mind.
