ॐ त्र्यम्बकं यजामहे सुगन्धिं पुष्टिवर्धनम् ।
उर्वारुकमिव बन्धनान् मृत्योर्मुक्षीय मामृतात् ।।
Om Tryambakam Yajamahe
We worship the three-eyed one (Lord Shiva),
who is fragrant and who nourishes all beings; may
he liberate me from death, for the sake of
immortality, even as the cucumber is severed
from its bondage (of the creeper).
EXERT FROM JAPA YOGA – A COMPREHENSIVE TREATISE ON MANTRA-SASTRA BY SWAMI SIVANANDA
“This Maha-Mrityunjaya Mantra is a life-giving mantra. In these days, when life is very complex, accidents are an everyday affair, this mantra wards off deaths by snake-bites, lightning, motor-accidents, fire accidents, cycle accidents, water accidents, air accidents and accidents of all descriptions. Besides, it has a great curative effect. Again, diseases pronounced incurable by doctors are cured by this mantra, when chanted with sincerity, faith and devotion. It is a weapon against all diseases. It is a mantra to conquer death.
It is also a moksha mantra. It is Lord Shiva’s mantra. It bestows health (Arogya), long life (Deergha-Ayus), peace (Shanti), wealth (Aisvarya), prosperity (Pushti), satisfaction (Tushti) and immortality (Moksha).
