Puranic Mahamrityunjay Mantra

This is the version of the Mahamrityunjay Mantra, which is often referred to as the Puranic Mahamrityunjay Mantra.  Puranic means ancient, hence the name and origin of this Mantra.  The Puranas are those Hindu religious texts, which came after the composition of the Vedas. However, it has to be borne in mind that the Shiva Mantra always existed and was practiced before being included in the written form in the Puranic texts.

There are again more than one versions of this particular Mahamrityunjay Mantra, the common variation is of the word Maharudra being replaced by Mahadev. There is another similar version which is published - Here.

मन्त्र
ॐ  मृत्युंजय महारुद्र त्राहिमां शरणागतं | जन्म मृत्यु जरा व्याधी पीडितं कर्मबन्धनैः ||
Mantra
Om Mrityunjay Maharudra Trahimam Sharnagatam | Janmamrityujara Vyadhi Piditam Karmabandhanaih ||

The Mantra is a Sanskrit prayer of surrendering to Shiva as the Maharudra, asking for eradication of disease and pain and freedom from the unending cycle of birth, old age, suffering and death.

After studying a lot of texts, I have come to the conclusion that this Mahamrityunjay Mantra will bear full results after 33 Lakh Mantra Chants are completed. This may sound extremely difficult, but it must be remembered that this kind of Mantra Sadhana is never wasted and the penance and effort is carried forwards in future births.

I would also advise against counting the number of  Mantra Chants.
