Lord Shiva • The Mahamrityunjaya Mantra was chanted by Chandradeva while performing penance at Prabhasa Kshetra to get relieved of his disease of consumption due to the curse of Daksha. This is a very powerful mantra which Lord Brahma had suggested Chandradeva to recite. This is the event behind Somanatha Jyotirlinga (Shiva Purana - Koti Rudra Samhita - 14).
