Mahamrtyunjaya Mantra

Bhavani Lorraine Nelson, Mark Kelso
Traditional Sanskrit chant


om tryambakam yajamahe
sugandhim pusti-vardhanam
urvarukam iva bandhanan
mrtyor muksiya mamrtat svaha

We meditate on Shiva, the father of the three worlds, of sweet fragrance, who expands (spiritual) growth. Like the (fully ripened) cucumber (easily snapped) from its stem, may I be free from the bondage of death. May I not be without the nectar of immortality. Svaha (exclamation of offering)
