Mahamrityunjaya Mantra is the most powerful pooja mantra which is written in the ancient Sanskrit book of mantras which has many forms. It is called the Rudra mantra, referring to the fierce form of Shiva; the Trimbakam mantra by implying to Shiva's three eyes. It is sometimes known as the Mrita-Sanjivini mantra because it is an element of the "life-restoring" practice given to the primitive sage Shukra after he had completed an exhausting period of asperity. The Maha Mrityunjaya mantra is hailed by the sages as the heart of the Veda.
Mahamrityunjaya means victory over the great death or victory over the illusion of separateness from spirit.
