Sri Sri Mahamrityunjaya Stotram
For mothers, श्रावण । Shrawan is the designated month for conversations with Bhagwan Shiva. The topic is children and the partners with whom they have perpetuated the gene pool. Good health for them, the mothers ask, and life to span a century each.
On the receiving end of an unselfish mother’s entreaty is the महामृत्युञ्जय । MahaMrityunjaya manifestation of Bhagwan Shiva. He is the one in charge of the quality of life department. Mothers may choose to speak to Him in silence, or with intention alone. But to those who prefer to communicate in the वैखरी । vaikhari form of (audible) sound, Markandeya Rishi has a suggested script.
Markandeya Rishi is addressing the MahaMrityunjaya manifestation of Bhagwan Shiva in the form of Sri Sri Pasupatinath. We wanted to go local with our reference and, in the video below, give voice to the silent stream of mothers who will be calling on Him at His abode at Deopatan tomorrow.
