The seeker's purpose could be anything like acquisition of prosperity, health, education, human ills or spiritual upliftment. For each purpose, there is different "Mantra". For example, the Gayatri Mantra is a prayer to the Sun as Savitri, the inner compeller, which radiates light in the physical world and stimulates spiritual realist action.

Mantras can be taken for mitigating various human ills. For instance, Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra is for overcoming untimely death, begetting relief from even the most dangerous disease and enjoying relief from severe trouble in life. Recitation of Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra has been recommended for overcoming the malefic effects of certain planets.
Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra is meant for overcoming untimely death, begetting relief from most dangerous diseases and enjoying relief from severe troubles in life. There is an interesting episode in "Siva Purana" in the context of Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra. King Kshwa struck sage Dadhicha, son of Chyavana, by his thunderbolt. His limbs were broken and he remembered Sukra, one of his ancestors. Sukra appeared before Dhadhicha and joined his broken limbs and advised him to perform penance aimed at Lord Siva by reciting "Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra". having performed severed penance; he obtained three boons from Lord Siva, known as Mrityunjaya, the conqueror of Death. The three boons granted were adamantine bones, immunity from death and absence of distress. The episode clearly focuses on the capacity and efficacy of Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra. 

Our body contains several divine energies located in every limb and nerve, from head to sole. Ancient sages saw the Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra as capable of invoke the universal forces, Lord's energy in various forms including "Ashta Vasu", "Ekadasa Rudras", "Dvadasa Aduityas", "Shat Chakras", "Sahasra Dala", "Three Vedas", "Four Gunas", " Four Directions etc.
