How Lord Shiva Protects Your Life and Helps You Live Long
The Maha Mrityunjaya homam can be performed if one is suffering from any type of disease including cancer. It invigorates, provides peace, gratifies and gives prosperity, and also bestows wealth and health. Taking part in the homam can pep up your energies and provide an environment free of disease and suffering. The word Mrityunjaya itself means victory over death.
During the homa, Maha Mrityunjaya mantra and other powerful mantras, that invoke Lord Shiva, are chanted to protect against accidents, fears of death and other misfortunes. One can also get moksha (liberation from cycle of life and death) by doing the yagya. The healing power of the mantra enters the body at the cellular level, through foods and spiritual thoughts and even through medication prescribed for a patient. So, don’t fear, Lord Shiva is there to protect you.
