Hey it's my first question on this site I hope I will get a reply soon.

So my questions.

  1. Is there any way to get rid of all the diseases, illness and sickness like seasonal cold, influenza virus and etc?

  2. I've heard that chanting mahamrityunjay mantra gets rid of all illnesses and diseases is it true?

I'd appreciate it if you could please provide some text where it is said so.

I do not have any diseases or illnesses at all, thanks to God. But when I see ill people I not only feel bad for them, I also feel afraid, i wish to never get ill like that so to avoid all that I'm seeking answers to my questions.


Jai Ram.

  • In my understanding, it is not possible to get rid of karma phala of prArabdha karma. Not even God can stop that. As for non-prArabdha karma - only jnAna of brahman can destroy non-prArabdha karmas and mantras may be able to indirectly help in attaining jnAna in the long term. But attaining jnAna is very very difficult. Long story short, there is no way to get rid of diseases, illnesses. Of course, as I said, this is my understanding.

  • One can manage health through Yoga and Ayurveda. But ALL diseases for a body that is temporary and aging is not possible unless you find the fountain of youth Commented Apr 16 at 17:31
  • You can get rid of diseases by visiting a doctor, doing exercises or getting rid of the body itself.

As it is said, "मृत्युंजय महादेव त्राहिमां शरणागतम्। जन्ममृत्युजराव्याधी पीडितं कर्मबन्धनैः॥". So the disease is part of our karma and one can pray to seek help, but best thing is to take medical advise.
