This Mantra is mentioned in Rig Veda (1500 B.C.), the oldest of the Hindu scriptures. It was a secret Mantra and once known only to Sage Markandeya. He gave it to Sati (who was in Haridwar), daughter of Daksha, and she helped Moon who was in trouble. Another version on the transmission of the Mantra is that Lord Shiva (the superior of the Hindu Trinity) gave the Mantra to Shukracharya who gave it to Sage Dadhichi (after whom the Param Veer Chakra, the highest Indian award for bravery, equivalent to the British Victoria Cross and American Medal of Honor, is named). It appeared in the scripture Shiva-Purana and thus to common man.

In the modern times, the Mrityunjaya Mantra is chiefly used for the following purposes

  • To seek good health
  • To seek postponing death
  • To seek cancellation of death
  • To seek painless and easy departure (death) for a terminally ill person

This Mantra is to be chanted typically 108 times. At times it is also chanted 3, 9, or large number of times, by the person concerned or by a near and dear one of the relevant person.

There are several other suggestions for effectiveness.


Om, we proffer our salutations to the three eyed Lord (Shiva) for enhancing our vitality; to release us from the bondage of death, so effortlessly, as a ripe cucumber falls off its creeper effortlessly.
