Mahamrtyunjaya Mantra Japa & Shiva Manasa Puja
The Mahamrtyunjaya Mantra is one of the most revered and popular Vedic mantras that is safe for all practitioners. It is attributed to the God Shiva. Shiva is the mendicant, the shaman, the healer. His energy helps us dispel the fear of death that arises in the face of adversity (illness, suffering, trauma, etc). Chanting this mantra gives the practitioner strength, resilience, and courage.
Shiva Manasa Puja is a ritual that will help us align with the Shiva energy. Shelley will chant this with all of the prayers, and sponsorship gifts on the altar.
An Invitation to Join Us for A Special Ritual
Traditionally, participants can make personal offerings in exchange for Shiva's help in alleviating any problems you may be facing. This is based on an understanding that you receive what you give.
Your personal offering may simply be a prayer for help in getting through something difficult in your life. Or a prayer for a loved one. You can participate in person or remotely. Simply provide us with your name and anyone else you’d like us to pray for as we make the offering. You don’t have to have attended the class. Everyone is welcome.
It’s customary also in ceremonies to offer formal opportunities for sponsorship with the belief that when you make a personal sacrifice it results in a beneficial reward. For this reason, we’re offering the opportunity for those who’d like to make a formal donation toward this ceremony on your own behalf or for the sake of another.
In exchange, we’ll send you prasad (blessed articles) from the ceremony to keep on your altar or to wear for Shiva’s protection.
