Which is the correct Trayakshar Mrityunjaya Mantra- Om Haum Joom Sah OR Om Joom Sah
@Rickross the first one is not three lettered but I read in one book that it is Trayakshar Mrityunjaya mantra. Maybe Om is put because in every mantra Om is put to increase its power. The second mantra I found on internet which they say is the Trayakshar Mrityunjaya mantra. So not sure which is the true Trayakshar Mrityunjaya mantra– RamFeb 3, 2019 at 9:18
Although u hv asked only abt the 3-lettered Mrityunjaya mantra I hv also given the long version (12-lettered) of the same– RickrossFeb 4, 2019 at 7:44
@Rickross ok thanks. The answer looks correct to me. I don't understand why people put wrong mantras in book. I don't want to name the book. But it has rishi name, Dhyan mantra of the mantra Om Haum Joom Sah.– RamFeb 4, 2019 at 8:57

The correct Tryakshara Mrityunjaya Mantra is Om jum sah, the 2nd one you gave.
Sarva Devadevi Mantra Koshah (Mantras collected from Tantras for all deities-complied by Upendranath Mukhopadhyaya) gives the following Mantra:
Atha mrityunjaya mantrah:
TAram sthirA sakarnendu bhriguhusarga samnvitah |
TryakshAratmA nigadito mrityunjaytmakah ||
Om jum sah || (1)
The Mantra first is given in a code (as is usual in Tantras).
Some hints to decode it are as follows:
TAram - TAraka Mantra or Om.
Sthira - referring to the letter Ja.
Bhrighu - referring to the letter Sa.
Sarga - Visarga (:)
The 1st Mantra that you gave is not given in the book under Shiva Mantras. So, it may or may not be a valid Mantra. But, whatever might be the case, it is not a 3-lettered Mantra. It is 4-lettered as you can see.
The text also gives another form of the Mrityunjaya Mantra which is not 3 but 12-lettered:
Mrityunjayam samucchArya pAlaya dvitayam vadet |
Mrityunjayam samucchArya punareva vilomatah ||
DwAdashAksharam mantrohayam mrityunjayAbhidhoparah ||
Om jum sah pAlaya pAlaya sah jum Om || (2)
