Spiritual journey memoirs – Sivananda family, India
Category : Stories
During my Sivananda ashram stay in Madurai, India. On our weekly day off, we went to visit amazing temples of the Madurai. We meet amazing young Vedanta students, who did Vedic chanting for us. I was so mesmerized by their amazing vocal strength, indeed they must be doing their pranayama practice well. In the end, our Sivananda family chanted Maha Mrityunjaya mantra, from Rig veda
Aum Trayambakam Yajamahe,
Urva Rukamiva Bandhanaan,
Mrityor Mokshiye Maamritat.
Maha Mrityunjaya is one of the most powerful mantra, also known as Moksha mantra. It is known to gives all happiness of the world, removes all evils and sins. Destroys tamas and increasesthe Satwa Guna into the being.
In our Sivananda tradation, we often chant Maha Mrityunjaya atleast 5 or 7 times, on special occasions like birthdays. To pray for good health, vitality and to remove sins.
I really appreciate the love and blessings of my Masters. Aum Namah Sivaya.
