Mahamritunjaya Mantra
This Mahamritunjaya mantra is from the Rig-Veda which is the greatest work of Maharishi Vashistha.. Anybody can recite this mantra and attain good health, release from bondage and other problems. This is the greatest reliever from all evils and can be recited at any time. It should be recited preferably for forty days both in the morning and evening, after lighting a jyoti and sitting on a woolen asana while facing east. Recite the Maha-mantra 108 times (one rosary) or its multiples in each sitting. Before commencing the Mahamritunjaya mantra recite the following small prayer to the everlasting spirit of the Maharishi for his blessings and guidance.
OM SUCHIRMARKAIR BRIHASPATIM ADHVARESHU NAMASYATAH
(21 Times)
We pray to Brihaspati (the Lord of this Universe and teacher of Vedic Knowledge), whose wishes are sacred,
for good thoughts

VYAM VASHISHTHAYA NAMAH
(21 Times)
This is the prayer to Maharishi Vashistha (whose Holy Spirit is Total and Universal).
The initiated should practice the Pranayama ten times with the Beejakshara Mantra "OM HOUM JUM SAH". Others can skip this and go to the Maha-mantra directly.

This is to be followed by the Dhyana Mantra (Meditation) of Sri Tryambakeswara (One of the twelve Jyotirlinga) and then meditate on Sri Tryambakeshwara (Lord Shiva) and Sri Amriteshwari (Gouri or Parvati Shakti) with the relevant beejakshara and Rudra Pooja. Meditate for at least 15 Minutes before starting the Japa (Recitation of Mantra).
Then repeat the following Mahamritunjaya mantra 108 times or multiples of this number. The Mahamritunjaya Mantra reads:
OM
TRYAMBAKKAM YAJAMAHE SUGANDHIM
PUSTIVARDHANAM URVAROOKAMEVA BANDANAAN
MRITYORMOKSHEEYA MAAMRITAAT.

Mantra Meaning:-
TRYAMBAKKAM
Refers to the Three eyes of Lord Shiva. 'Trya' means 'Three' and Ambakam' means eyes. These three eyes or sources of enlightenment are the Trimurti or three primary deities, namely Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva and the three 'AMBA' (also meaning Mother or Shakti' are Saraswati, Lakshmi and Gouri. Thus in this word, we are referring to God as Omniscient (Brahma), Omnipresent (Vishnu) and Omnipotent (Shiva).
YAJAMAHE
Means, "We sing to praise".
SUGANDHIM
Refers to His fragrance (of knowledge, presence and strength i.e. three aspects).
PUSTIVARDHANAM
Pooshan refers to Him Brahma Creator.
URVAAROKAMEVA
'URVA' means "VISHAL" or big and powerful . 'AAROOKAM' means 'Disease'. Thus URVAROOKA means deadly and overpowering diseases.
BANDANAAM
Means bound down.
MRITYORMOOKSHEYA
Means to deliver us from death (both premature deaths in this Physical world and from the never-ending cycle of deaths due to re-birth) for the sake of Mokshya (Nirvana or final release from re-birth).
MAAMRITAAT
Means 'please give me some Amritam(life rejuvenating nectar).
