The Dalai Lama Chants the Om Trayambakam

One of our important chants in yoga is the Om Trayambakam, officially the Maha Mrtyunjaya Mantra. It is a Siva mantra and gives you long life, health, happiness, prosperity and liberation.

Recently the Dalai Lama chanted the Om Tryambakam. You can listen to the mp3 file from the previous link or here.

From the website:

The story behind the recording: A beloved friend of the Dalai Lama, another monk, was making his transition from this life to the next.  Not, it might be said, as a trauma or a lost cause, but as a joyful journey at the correct time and with understanding of life beyond earth life. The Dalai Lama sat at his friend’s bedside and chanted this chant for hours until the monk,with joy and peace, made his crossing. Those who were present begged the Dalai Lama to record the chant so that it might be shared with the world. He agreed to do so only if it was stated that the recording could never be sold, but only given away. This MP3 is the result. It is not for sale but is meant to be copied and shared.


This is one of the most sacred and powerful mantras used for healing. It has truly wondrous therapeutic power when chanted or listened to regularly. Mrityunjaya mantra will help you to know the divinity within. It is chanted to know eternity. The mrityunjaya mantra is considered one of the maha mantras or great Sanskrit mantras because of its potency to give protection and manifold blessings. Maha mrityunjaya literally means the great victory over death. It is associated with Shiva, the destroyer of ignorance, and the liberator from the cycle of death and rebirth. It is therefore a life giving mantra that not only protects the physical body and gives health, but purifies the mind at a deep level.
