In the morning, after bathing, sit in front of a photo of lord shiva. Place a lamp beside the photo and light it. Keep a clean plate in front of the lamp. Now take two small pots and place them on the plate. Fill the pot to the right with water (about 150ml). Now take a tulsi leaf in your right hand and hold it with your ring finger and thumb. Dip the tulsi leaf into the water present in the pot and then hold it over the other pot, letting the water drops fall into the empty pot. Chant the Mrityunjaya Mantra (click the link if you do not know the mantra) while letting the water fall into the empty pot. Keep repeating the Mrityunjaya Mantra in a slow pace as you continue the ritual. Maintain a constant rhythm for the mantra and the ritual.
Have an image of Lord Shiva as the great Mrityunjaya (the one who has victory over death). Repeat the ritual until all the water is transferred from one pot to the other. The ritual can be especially effective for couples who want to overcome miseries or difficulties in their life. The ritual can be started by the husband and then continued by the wife. After the ritual is over, the family members can drink the water while chanting Om Namah Shivaya thrice.
Practise this ritual on a saturday or morning. With the infinite grace of Lord Mrityunjaya, your family will be blessed with happiness and all your miseries will be overcome.
