Chanted for over 4000 years, the Mahamrityunjaya Mantra is believed to be the most powerful of all the ancient Sanskrit mantras. It is used for healing on all levels--physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Some claim it has the ability to avert death. The vibrational intention of this mantra is for spiritual awakening. Mahamrityunjaya means "victory over the great death"--victory over the illusion that we are separate from Spirit. Use "Mantra for Healing" during and after surgery, to heal from illness or emotional trauma, as a meditation, for centering and calming the mind, for relaxation and massage, or played softly in the room of a person who is preparing for transition.
In "Mantra for Healing," Karuna and the Sacred Sound Choir are accompanied by Barry Phillips on cello, dilruba, swar mandal, and tanpura.
Karuna Ault (Producer, Sacred Sound Productions) has been singing in chanting ensembles and producing recordings for over 20 years, including the well-loved kirtan albums "Jai Govinda," "Murali Krishna," "Jaya Shambho," and "Jai Shiva!", as well as instrumental albums "Anjali" and "Inner Light."

The Mahamrityunjaya Mantra:
Om tryambakam yajamahe
Mrityor mukshiya mamritat
"Om, we pray to the One who sees all--whose grace manifests everywhere like sweet fragrance, who bestows prosperity, and who nourishes all beings. May the Supreme Spirit free us from bondage and death, releasing us into the oneness of our immortal nature. May liberation unfold as naturally as a ripe fruit simply falls away from its branch and becomes free."
The Cover Yantra can be used for meditation, either by itself or while listening to this chant. It is called Sri Mahamrityunjaya Kavach Yantra--a protection yantra for conquering the great death. It is said that being established in the center of this yantra is like wearing a suit of spiked armor which stops the enemy of destruction or death.
