In astrology, the Mahamrityunjaya Locket is believed to have protective and healing properties. It is associated with the powerful Mahamrityunjaya Mantra, a Sanskrit chant dedicated to Lord Shiva. This mantra is considered to be one of the most potent mantras for healing and overcoming obstacles in life. The Mahamrityunjaya Mantra is as follows:
“ॐ त्र्यम्बकं यजामहे सुगन्धिं पुष्टिवर्धनम् उर्वारुकमिव बन्धनान्मृत्योर्मुक्षीय मामृतात्”
Translation: “We meditate on the three-eyed one (Lord Shiva) who is fragrant and nourishes all beings. May He liberate us from death, just as a cucumber is effortlessly severed from its bondage.”
People wear the Mahamrityunjaya Locket as a talisman or amulet, believing it can bring protection from illnesses, accidents, and negative influences. It is also thought to promote good health, longevity, and overall well-being.
In astrology, individuals may be recommended to wear this locket based on their birth chart or astrological readings, particularly if they are going through challenging periods or experiencing health issues. Astrologers may suggest wearing the locket during specific planetary transits or periods when protection and healing are deemed necessary.
