This is a century-old Hindu ritual where a priest chants the Maha Mrityuanjay mantra to seek longevity. It is performed to please Lord Shiva so that he can abolish severe health issues and even death. As the name suggests, it’s a Jaya over Mrityu or wins over death. It’s also known as Maha Sanjeevani Homam/Yagna.
