    Hi Andrea,

    This is a really interesting article and not what I was expecting when I saw it. We all have so many emotions and thoughts every single day, a lot of them are negative and a lot of them positive. It can be life changing to change our thoughts from negative to positive, but is not easy to do.

    The Sanskrit Mantra will definitely help with our emotions and thoughts, and I love how you say this will fight our negative emotions.

    Thank you for sharing and keep up the great work.

    All the best,

    Hello Andrea!

    Its a very insightful article:) My wife and myself are very interested in yoga and meditation, we have learned some Mantra but this one did not know about the Mahā Mrityunjaya.

    Very interesting post, I had never heard of the Mahā Mrityunjaya. I have heard of mantras before however. This one sounds very powerful. I appreciate you explaining its meaning and what is involved with chanting it properly. Thanks!

    Hi Andrea,
    An interesting article. Although I have previously heard about mantras, I only understood that it stands for a tangible focal point during meditation through reading this article. You explained why it is spoken 108 times. What are the significance of the other numbers you quoted – 3, 9, 27 and 54 as I am sure there must be some spiritual attachment.

    I wanted to first off thank you for having given us this enlightening article. I knew that the Mahamrityunjaya Mantra helps with resurrection and the fear of death, but not that it also heals &.protects.

    However, even though for the most part, when I was working with it the night before it helped just fine– yet just as I climbed into bed (while still working with it) I suddenly got assaulted by
    – itchiness everywhere
    – loud noises
    – psychic attack

    Feedback please???

      Mantras can be very powerful because they ease you into states of meditation and higher consciousness, which can bring repressed or hidden emotions and memories to the surface. Some of these memories or emotions may be associated with past traumatic or unpleasant situations. This is probably your body’s way of telling you that you may need to deal with them, rather than bury them.
      I hope this helps Emily!
