Maha Mrityunjaya Stotram - Prayer of the Great Victor over Death, By Sage Markandeya

Background story about this stotra: Sage Mrukandu prayed Lord Shiva for a son. Lord Shiva gave him a choice - whether he wanted an intelligent son who will live only for 16 years or foolish one, who will live for hundred years. The sage chose the intelligent one. A son was born to him and was named as Markandeya. This boy became a very great devotee of Lord Shiva. On his sixteenth birthday, the Yama, the lord who takes care of the soul after death came. He ran away and entered the sanctum sanctorum of the lord Shiva and embraced him. He sang the Maha Mrituinjaya stotra. Lord Shiva turned down Yama and granted him live. This prayer is supposed to ward of all evils, remove fear of death and realize all wishes.

Om Sri Ganesaya Nama.

Salutations to Lord Ganesa. I am chanting this “Maha mrutyunjaya mantra (Chant to win over death), which is composed by Sage Markandeya, in anushtup meter, with Mrutyunjaya as God, Gowri as the strength, with a view to win over death and getting of all sorts of wealth.

Atha dhyanam (Meditating Lord Maha Mrituinjaya)
Chandrarkagni vilochanam, smitha mukam, Padmadwayantha sthitham,
Mudra pasa mrugakshasuthra vilasath paanim, Himaam suprabham,
Kotindu prakalathsudhaplutha thanum haaraathi, Bhooshojwalam,
Kantham viswa vimohanam, pasupathim, Mruthyunjayam bhavayeth.

I meditate on that victor over death, Who has moon, sun and fire as eyes, Who has a smiling face, Who sits on two lotus flowers, Whose hands shine with the sign the rope, The deer and the garland of rudraksha, Who has the pleasant shine of the ice, Who has a body drenched by nectar, From billions of moons, Who ornaments himself with several garlands, Who is very handsome, Who can attract the entire world, And who is the lord of all beings.

Now the chant is being started
Chandrashekara Ashtakam (Chandrasekharashtakam or Chandrasekhara Ashtakam) was written by Sage Markandeya, an ancient Hindu Rishi who was saved by Chandrashekara or Lord Shiva from Lord of Death (Kala or Yama) at the age of 16 and blessed him to be 16 forever. It is believed that Sage Markandeya sung this beautiful Sanskrit stotra when Chandra Shekara (Lord Shiv) saved the sage from death.

Benefits of chanting Chandrasekhara Ashtakam - Those who chant Chandra Sekhara Ashtakam daily or on every Monday will not have any fear of death and would have full healthy life and gain all wealth with the blessing of Lord Chandra Sekhara and attain salvation in the end.
