Maha Mrutyunjaya sthotra
Om Trayambakam Yajaamahe Sugandhim Pushtivardhanam,
Urvaarukmiva Bandhanaan Mrityor Mokshiya Mamritaat
Meaning: We meditate on Shiva, the three-eyed one, 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.
Shiva Prarthana : Om
Namaste astu Bhagavan
Trikagni - Kalaya
Kalagni - Rudraya Nilakantaya Mrityunjayaya
Sriman Mahadevaya Namah.
Meaning : Om. I bow down to Lord Shiva, who is the creator and protector of the universe, who is the greatest among gods, who has three eyes, who is the annihilator of all the three worlds, one whose throat is blue, who is the conqueror of death, who is the Lord of all, who is propitious who is possessed of all marks of greatness and who is the greatest among Gods. To him my prostrations. Explanation : The mantra is a prayer to Lord Shiva who is addressed as Sankara and Trayambaka. Sankara is sana (blessings) and Kara (the Giver). Trayambaka is the three eyed one (where the third eye signifies the giver of knowledge, which destroys ignorance and releases us from the cycle of death and rebirth).
