Shiva/Mrytunjaya Yagya Series performed in Haridwar
at the Foothills of the Himalaya Mountains
June 18 to 27
($65 for the entire family)
The Maha Mrytunjaya Mantra is one of the most powerful yagya mantras in the Vedic tradition. It is used when maintaining or recovering good health, for stabilizing inner peace and freedom from fear, and to promote the speedy development of enlightenment.
A team of 6 of our priests will travel from Kanchipuram to Haridwar in north India to perform this special yagya series on the banks of the sacred Ganges river at the foothills of the Himalaya mountains. Each day the yagya program will begin with a Shiva Abishekam and other yagyas for Ganesha and the Navagraha (nine planets), the Goddesses (Durga, Lakshmi, Saraswati and Parvati), and Vishnu.
Then the main focus on the Mrytunjaya mantra will take up most of the five hour daily ritual. The program will continue in the afternoon and evening with additional pujas, mantra repetition, and vedic recitations. To be able to have this yagya performed in this sacred place, by priests who are exceptionally well qualified and experienced with this mantra, is a very rare opportunity.
The mantra's power is transcendent to its meaning but an english
translation would be:
We bring to our awareness the three eyed one (Shiva)
Whose grace is as sweet as the fragrance of a flower
May he grant us liberation from fear and death
with the ease and quickness that one picks a ripe fruit
