  12. The open eye mediation with this mantra as the theme was the most amazing experience I’ ve been through. Feels like coming out of a spa. The music was so so soothing and relaxing just wanted to lay n relax in the peace and never wanted it to end. I could feel the energy in each n every part of my body moving from my toes , the soles of my feet upwards. As you wrote the words energy kept moving to each body part as you kept mentioning .Also felt a constant flow of heat in my feet throughout the meditation. Uptil my sacral chakra was getting cleaned till then felt sleepy relaxed and peaceful after that as soon as sacral chakra was cleaned and charged, felt a rush of energy as if I was all fresh and ready to start a new day. This time energy force was quite strong throughout the meditation. Thank you so much Sir and the team for making this possible. Just wanted to know if there is a way I can repeat this meditation and do the ones I have missed.

    I felt the Pulsating vibration at 3rd eye chakra & still feeling when typing.

  20. Sir,

    As you have mentioned above can i recite just the Triakshar (Smallest) Mrityunjaya Mantra instead of the Mrityunjaya Mantra. Will it give the same benefits, also what is the auspicious time to recite the mantras

  21. Hello Sir,
    First of all, thanks for such detailed insights into this powerful mantra. I’ve been looking for this answer at various places on the internet but found nothing satisfactory. I think you would be the right person to know this. Keeping the busy life schedules these days, it’s nearly impossible to consistently chant 108 times daily. Is their a shorter number like 5, 9 or 11 that we can chant on a daily basis? Thanks!

  22. Other question please
    I m from arabic country and i dont know what this mantra words are meaning
    Can i get benefits if i use ?

  25. Sir,
    Thanks for the detailed information. But, I have to ask you that I am suffering from backbone fracture and on bedrest…. so, can’t afford to sit. Can I do ‘ mansik uchharan’ of this mantra without using rosemary even during periods. Taking bath daily is also not possible for me….. Please guide me sir.

    • Lord Shiva is very kind… do chant whatever way is best suited for you… you can also chant during periods…

  26. Dear sir, I have been chanting Maha Mrityunjaya mantra for a very long time, it really refreshes me always no other mantra can give me such a feeling. Can chanting the seed mantra “Om Haum Joom Saha” give me the same benefit of chanting the full maha mrityunjaya mantra?
