The magic of Maha Mrityunjaya mantra

By Rani Govender, South Africa

“Let every breath we take lead us and the society to more awareness and Freedom.” – Mohanji

It is with this thought in mind that I sat to begin Maha Mrityunjaya chanting on 26 March 2020. There was a call from the President of South Africa for all citizens to pray at 18h00 for protection and healing from the coronavirus, so I decided to do the Maha Mrityunjaya mantra for all those infected and affected by the virus and to alleviate fear in the general population of the world.

I wanted a recorded version to chant along to and played one which was shared on our temple WhatsApp group. The pronunciation on this recording did not sound right to me, so I set about to find one which would work well for me. This is how determined I was. Now, I see it as a gentle nudge from the Masters.


So I googled and found a chant on YouTube which repeated the mantra 108 times. I began chanting and very quickly became immersed. Despite my throat becoming hoarse, I was determined to chant 108 times and complete my sadhana.

Whenever I chant/meditate, I mentally go to Lake Manasarovar. This visualisation just comes naturally to me. This time while chanting, I saw a beautiful form of the Divine Mother dressed in a red and gold Benares sari, walking out of the water. She stayed a while and gave me her darshan.


I enjoyed the darshan of the Divine Mother and continued chanting. Then I suddenly saw the Earth from space. A Sage/Sadhu was walking around the planet sprinkling something. As he walked around, I saw that he used Neem leaves to bless the planet.

As the chanting continued, I saw the Earth divided with lines running vertically. This looked like they could be the Ley lines or energy meridians of the Earth. Seated on top of the planet was a person meditating in padmasana pose, (lotus pose) like Shiva. This vision continued for some time and I was in bliss.

At the end of the chanting, I got the feeling that all will be well and that whatever is happening is karmic and that Mother Earth must heal.

Before the chanting, I had severe sciatica pain for two days. Despite this pain, I managed to clean the lamps at our Temple and also do all my household chores. Although I pushed through the pain, it was an effort.

Earlier in the afternoon (before the chanting), I found it difficult to get on and off the recliner on which I was resting. After the chanting, I noticed it became easier to get on and off until finally at bedtime, it had eased considerably. I could lie on my side with no pain emanating from my left leg. A day after the chanting, the pain eased to almost nothing!

I was amazed. I was blessed to experience the healing powers of the Maha Mrityunjaya mantra.

This chant is extremely powerful for healing. Chant to protect yourself, your family, community, country and the world at large.

I am in deepest gratitude to Mohanji and the Masters for providing me with this beautiful experience and for the healing which was provided.

Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi Om.
