By Swami Harshananda

Sometimes transliterated as: Mahasveta, MahAZvetA, Mahaashvetaa


Mahāśvetā literally means ‘the great white pure mantra’.

Fasting and japa or repetition of prescribed mantras are supposed to give great merit. If the mantra ‘hrāih hrīiii sah’, called as mahāśvetā, is repeated on a Sunday along with fasting, it is said to yield whatever one wants.
