Mumbai, April 13 (IANS) Singer-composer Shekhar Ravjiani has unveiled his version of “Maha Mrityunjaya” mantra, which he describes as a prayer from him to Lord Shiva to protect everyone at a time when people are hit by the coronavirus pandemic.
“I’ve been listening to Shankar Sahney’s version of the ‘Maha Mrityunjaya’ mantra since many years and it is a prayer that I really love and recite regularly,” said Shekhar.
“During this lockdown period, I’ve been praying for the well-being of humanity with the hope that this difficult time will pass. Here’s my version of ‘Maha Mrityunjaya’ mantra — a prayer from me to Lord Shiva to protect all of us,” added the artiste, who had earlier come up with his own rendition of the Hanuman Chalisa and Gayatri Mantra.
Shekhar’s version of “Maha Mrityunjaya” mantra has been released by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series.

“We hope the mantra will bring about positive change during this tough time of the coronavirus pandemic that humanity at large is grappling with,” he added.
