The great mantra dedicated to Lord Shiva as ‘Mrityunjaya’ is found in the Rig Veda. It is called the MahaMrityunjaya mantra or the Great Death-Conquering mantra. It is a mantra that has many names and forms. It is also called the Rudra mantra, referring to the furious aspect of Shiva; the Tryambakam mantra, alluding to Shiva’s three eyes; and it is sometimes known as the Mrita-Sanjivini mantra because it is a component of the “life-restoring” practice given to the primordial sage Shukra after he had completed an exhausting period of austerity. The MahaMrityunjaya mantra is hailed by the sages as the heart of the Veda. Along with the Gayatri mantra it holds the highest place among the many mantras used for contemplation and meditation.
