Not Dalai Lama- Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra

It has been brought to my attention- a comment below is re-printed here- that this is not Dalai Lama. So, ignore all reference to Dalai Lama. The rest is okay, I think.

Sorry to say, but this was not the Dalai Lama chanting, but was a recording done by a Dutch performer called Hein Braat, and the original can be bought as a CD. It’s an urban myth which has been doing the tour for 20 years (but you’re by all means not alone in believing it!).

That doesn’t take away from just how special a piece of music it is, but the chant is from the Veda, which is not buddhist, but hindu. Tri-ambaka-m is the three-eyed one e.g. Lord Shiva.

The original recording by Hein Braat can be heard at the following link. Credit where it’s due, as he has an amazing voice.

Close your eyes, listen. Feel your heart beating,

your breath rising and falling. Do nothing.

Maha Mritvuniava Mantra

Om Tryambakam yajamah

Sugandhim pushti vardhanam

Urvarukamiva bondhanan

Mrityor mukshiya mamritat

 

Translation: I meditate on, and surrender myself to, the Divine Being who embodies the power of will, the power of knowledge, and the power of action. I pray to the Divine Being who manifests in the form of fragrance in the flower of life and is the eternal nourisher of the plant of life. like a skillful gardener, may the Lord of Life disentangle me from the binding forces of my physical, psychological, and spiritual foes. May the lord of Immortality residing within me free me from death, decay and sickness and unite me with immortality.

 

Explanation: This is a healing and nourishing mantra and is in a sense, “the Heart of Vedas.” The healing force awakened by this mantra sends forth its

ripples from body to psyche and from psyche to soul. It strengthens our powers of will, knowledge and action, thus unblocking the flow of enthusiasm, courage and determination. The vibration of this mantra awakens the internal healing force while attracting nature’s healing agents, creating an environment where the forces from both origins converge. This mantra connects us to the healer within and helps us receive the full nourishment from food, herbs, or any discipline undertaken for our total well being.

    I am only starting the path of awareness, and not a master by any means, but it seems to me that neither man would, in his enlightened state , care who was given credit. Rather, they might even defer to the other , saying, “He sang it.” In truth, they are both singing it. We are all singing it. The beauty of it resonates beyond the soul and perhaps It is singing itself back to us. Peace be to you all.

    thank you so much. I had been given this same recording by a friend and was totally confused by the Hindu/Buddhist connection and it’s origin.

    you are right caron, it sings itself back to us…
    i just had to hear it every day after the first time…like a tuning fork to the soul.

    Non m’interessa sapere chi sia a cantare il mantra della Liberazione dalle rinascite (Mahamoksha) da cui emana una pacata energia, una compassione estesa a tutto il genere umano che si vorrebbe liberare dalla sofferenza, un’accorata nostalgia di un paradiso persuto a cui si vuole tornare. E’ bene ascoltarlo quando ci si vuole armonizzar e centrare in se stessi. Fraterni saluti a tutti!

  8. Actually very beneficial ideas are given here.thank a person
    therefore much.Keep the excellent functions .

    On the other hand, does anyone know how I can get a copy of the CD? I have been trying to make a copy of the friend’s original but it isn’t working with either of my computers.

  10. The transliteration is not exact at some places. For instances the word ‘bondhanan’ should be ‘bandhanaat’, which means ‘from bondage’ or ‘from attachments’. What’s more, the prayer is for attaining ultimate mergence in the Immortal Divine by being freed from the bondages of the body and this worldly life! It is for attaining the ultimate dissolution of the soul of man in God. It is one of the highest, the most supremely spiritual of prayers that mankind can make. However at a more physical level, it has also been used as a prayer for healing.
