Shree Maa has just sent word that She would like to modify the April Sankalpa to include another mantra over the next 15 days.
For the next 15 days, during the dark fortnight, please also do one mala (108x) of the Avilom-Vilom Samput Tryambakam Mantra.
Please pray to Lord Shiva to cure the world of this virus and disease.
Here is the Mantra for the next 15 days, along with Q&A from Swamiji:
Questions with Swamiji about the Avilom Vilom Samput Tryambakam Mantra:
What is the Avilom Vilom samput?
Avilom Vilom samput is chanting the Maha Mrityunjaya mantra with “Om Jum sah Om Bhur Bhuvah Svah” added before the mantra, and the reverse “Svah Bhuvah Bhur Om Sah Jum Om” at the end of the mantra.
What does avilom-vilom mean?
Avilom Vilom means forwards and backwards.
What are the meanings of the words in the alom-vilom samput?
Om Bhur Bhuvah Svah – Om the Gross body, subtle body and causal body
Om – The infinite beyond conception
Jum -Infinite Consciousness
Sah – Manifested Nature
Lom grants creation and Vilom indicates dissolution. And you already understand the meaning of each syllable and word of the mantra. Lom-vilom samput paths are used for emphasis, to enhance the energy of evolution and involution into a particular mantra shakti.
Is it appropriate to always chant it with the samputs?
You will understand when or in which circumstances it will be most appropriate.
