Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra

Om Thryambhakam Yajamahe
Sugandhim Pushtivardhanam
Urvarukamiva Bandhanaan
Mrithyor Mukshiya Mamrithaath

OM. We worship and adore you, O three-eyed one, o Shiva. You are sweet gladness, the fragrance of life, who nourishes us, restores our health, and causes us to thrive. As, in due time, the ripe cucumber is freed from the vine, so free us from attachment and death, and grant us liberation and immortality.

OM = Almighty God
Thryambhakam = three-eyed
Yajamahe = We worship, adore, honor, revere
Sugandhim = sweet fragrance
Pushti = A well-nourished condition, thriving, prosperous, full, and complete Vardhanam = One who nourishes, strengthens, causes to increase (in health, wealth, well-being); who gladdens, exhilarates, and restores health; a good gardener
Urvarukam = disease, attachment, obstacles in life, and resulting depression
Iva Like, just as
Bandhanaan = Stem (of the gourd); but more generally, unhealthy attachment
Mrithyor = From death
Mukshiya = Free us, liberate us
Ma = not
Amrithaaath = Immortality

The great mantra dedicated to Shiva as Mrityunjaya is found in the Rig Veda. It is called the Maha Mrityunjaya mantra, the Great Death-Conquering mantra. It is a mantra that has many names and forms. It is called the Rudra mantra, referring to the furious aspect of Shiva; the Tryambakam mantra, alluding to Shiva's three eyes; and its is sometimes known as the Mrita-Sanjivini mantra because it is a component of the "life-restoring" practice given to the primordial sage Shukra after he had completed an exhausting period of austerity. The Maha Mrityunjaya mantra is hailed by the sages as the heart of the Veda. Along with the Gayatri mantra it holds the highest place among the many mantras used for contemplation and meditation.

The Mahamrityunjaya Mantra is a great timeless Mantra revealed by the Heart of the Divine for the welfare of all.
Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra is very much a protector from accidents, mishaps and daily calamities in the modern busy life.
