Embodied Living

Mar 16, 2011

The Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra is regarded as a healing mantra. It is addressed to [god] and considered as one of the most potent Sanskrit Mantras.  Along with the Gayatri mantra it holds the highest place among the many mantras used for contemplation and meditation

The Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra
Om trayambakam yajaamahe
sugandhim pushtivardhanam
Urvaarukamiva bandhanaan
 mrityor muksheeya maamritaat.

We meditate on the [god] which nourishes and increases the sweet fullness of life. Like a cucumber from its stem may we be separated ("liberated"), not from immortality but from death.
