Dear ramana,

Mantras like Gayatri, Sri Vidya mantras need initiation. But simple names like Rama, Rama, Siva, Siva, Muruga, Muruga -
can be chanted by anyone.

Arunachala Siva.

Is it right to chant these mantras like that?

Om namah Shivay (not Shivaya)
Om namo Naray'na (not Narayana)

I ask because I have noticed that in some songs these mantras are read like that.

Dear Hari,

These two are also powerful mantras which need initiation. Panckaksharam and Ashtaksharam are the names for this.
Mere chanting Siva or Narayana do not require initiation.

Arunachala Siva.

Introduction to Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra

The great mantra dedicated to Shiva as Mrityunjaya is found in the Rig Veda.  It is called the Maha Mrityunjaya mantra, the Great Death-Conquering mantra. It is a mantra that has many names and forms. It is called the Rudra mantra, referring to the furious aspect of Shiva; the Tryambakam mantra, alluding to Shiva's three eyes; and its is sometimes known as the Mrita-Sanjivini mantra because it is a component of the "life-restoring" practice given to the primordial sage Shukra after he had completed an exhausting period of austerity. The Maha Mrityunjaya mantra is hailed by the sages as the heart of the Veda. Along with the Gayatri mantra it holds the highest place among the many mantras used for contemplation and meditation.


OM. Tryambakam yajamahe
Sugandhim pushti-vardhanam
Urvarukamiva bandhanan
Mrityor mukshiya mamritat
