Lord Shiva's power over death & human wellness
There are two beautiful incidents described in the Puranas about Lord Shiva's power over death.
When Chandra or Soma, the moon god, was cursed by his father-in-law Daksha that he would suffer from gradual degeneration and die, Chandra is said to have worshipped Lord Shiva by chanting the Mrityunjaya mantra on the shores of Saurasthra and got relieved of the terrible curse. The lingam made by the moon god is today worshipped as the famous Somanatha Jyotirlinga.
The second instance is the story of how the young boy Markandeya fought Death by worshipping with great devotion. When Yama, the god of death came at the destined hour to take Markandeya's sould away, the 16yr old boy remained clinging to the Shivalingam he worshipped and Yama's noose enveloped the Shivalingam also. At this, Lord Shiva appeared in his fierce form and chided Yama for trying to put his noose around him and his devotee Markandeya.
