The Healing Mantra for Cheryl

Maha Mrityanjaya Mantra



Tryambakam Yajamahe

Sugandhim Pushtivardhanam

Urvarukamiva Bandhanam

Mrityor Mukshiya Mamritat


Personally, I translate this to mean:

I meditate on my higher Self – who can see all sides of things

She is fragrant and joyful and nourishes all beings

May I be disentangled from the bindings of physical, psychological and spiritual pains

And may all those I know be free from death, decay and sickness

There is so much more in this mantra – I have read many translations to do with gardening, cucumbers and immortality – but this is simple and it’s what I feel and think when I’m singing it.  I apologise in advanced to those learned Sanskrit scholars; please forgive my bungling – but this is the general gist.  The Sanskrit terms are said to send vibrations through the body and these ripples awaken the healing force which then moves through the physical body to the psyche, and from the psyche to the soul.  Thus unblocking a powerful flow of enthusiasm and energy fuelled with courage and determination – attracting nature’s healing agents.  I think it sends great vibes both to the singer and the person it’s sung for.  Hope it helped Cheryl (Wednesday 6 – 7 class) who tripped and damaged her ankle.
