The literal meaning of the mantra is as follows: “We worship the three-eyed one (Lord Shiva) who is fragrant (in a state of supreme bliss), and who sustains all living beings. May he liberate us from (the eternal cycle of birth and) death. May he lead us to immortality, just as the cucumber is released from its bondage (the vine to which it is attached).”
Benefits of chanting the Mahamrityunjaya mantra
The Mahamrityunjaya mantra is a potent combination of sounds that, if repeated with faith, dedication and perseverance over a period of time, leads, not only to victory over the fear of death, but eventually to victory over death itself or moksha (liberation). It is therefore known as a ‘moksha mantra’. It is stimulating and heating (unlike the Gayatri mantra, which is soothing and cooling). It bestows longevity, and is designed to cure illness. It wards off evil or negative forces by creating a protective psychic shield around the practitioner. It is said to destroy sorrow and poverty, and to fulfil all of one’s desires. Anyone who wishes to remove obstacles in life and overcome difficult situations or illness should repeat this mantra regularly. If chanted a minimum of eleven times, last thing at night, it will ensure a better sleep and more positive dreams.The vibrations of the mantra act directly on our psychic centres (CHACRAS) and re-organise the flow of PRANA ( energy of LIFE) thus bringing our body-mind-spirit in alignement with eachother which leads to better HEALTH at ALL levels.
And if those chantings remind you "religious" chantings, please keep in mind two things :
First, the yogic Tradition is far more ancient than any religion,
Second, that we are here in the SPIRIT 's realm
And Spirit has NO religion. Spirit know no boundary, no limit, no color...
It does not mean that you should leave your religion if you have one, no! but simply that mantra chanting are not religious practices, but spiritual practices, with no limitations ...
