Monday Mantra: A Mantra for Overcoming Death, Shiva Mahamrityunjaya Mantra

This week the mothers of two of my dear friends have left their physical bodies to rejoin with the Great Spirit. This is my offering to them and in celebration of the lives of their Beloved. May they, and their families find peace in their time of sorrow and feel the love of all who surround them, in this realm and others.

Om Shanti, Hari Om.

Shiva Mahamrityunjaya Mantra

The Mahamrityunjay is known as the "great death conquering mantra," because it connects us to our deepest Inner Self and removes the illusion that we are separate from God/Universe/High Power. It restores us to our full realization of our true state of Oneness and helps us release our attachment to our physical body and existence, as well as those belonging to the ones we most love. You can learn more about this mantra, here.
This is a Shiva mantra and Shiva is the energy of creative destruction. The Universal principal witnessed in each moment of our lives as one things dies so that another thing can rise from it's ashes into Being.
