The legend behind Mahamrityunjai Mantra:

Once there was a sage Mrikandu rishi. Both the sage and his wife were true devotees of Lord Shiva. They were always sad, that they don’t have any child.
For this, they both devoted Lord Shiva immensely for a very long time and made god happy with their prayers. As the boon, they asked for a child. In this Lord Shiva said, “You have two options; either I can give you a normal child with long life or an intelligent child with short life”.
After thinking, they both agreed on the intelligent child. God said tathastu and disappeared. Their life became full of happiness when they got a son, whom they renamed ‘Markandeya’. God said he will have only a lifespan of 16 years.
Time passed and now Markandeya was 16, his parents were sad of knowing to lost the child. In this, Markandeya’s father taught him this Mantra and suggested to follow it systematically.
Markandeya agreed and followed his father’s saying. Now he was 16 and Yamraja came to take his soul. When he found Markandeya meditating the mantra he was unable to take the soul. He tricked by many things but was unable to get off Markandeya.
At last, Lord Shiva appeared and blessed Markandeya with long life and happiness. After that, this mantra came to known as the ‘Mantra of Immortality’.

Thank you Shalini for the detailed meaning and benefits of “Mahamrityunjai Mantra”. I chant it daily early morning once.
But my question is how many times daily we should chant for a better overall health?
And will it benefit, if I listen 108 times chanting from TV?
Chanting can depend on you. Even a single time if you chant, it should be directly from soul and while listening you should be wholly submerged into the mantra only with a feeling that this Mantra is healing all my pains.
It will awake your subconsciousness which will automatically take you towards success.
