MRITYUNJAYA-THE VICTORY OVER DEATH

Mrityunjaya Maha Mantra. The Victory Over Death.

The ancient Vedic Book of Rig Veda in a hymn known as Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra expresses a very unique idea or concept about conquering death. Man is a mortal being. Just like a fully ripened fruit falls off from a tree, a man ripe in age, even when not afflicted by any disease or sickness, would encounter natural physical death.

The hymn suggests that a man can become ‘immortal’ and could conquer physical death by simply severing his psychological attachment to his own life. This act of cutting attachments to free oneself to secure victory over physical death is compared to the act of harvesting Cucumbers.
