Mahamrityunjaya Mantra is made up of three Hindi language words i.e. “Maha” which means Great, “Mrityun” means Death and “Jaya” means Victory.
Here, is the Mantra: Om tryambakam yajamahe sugandhim pusti vardhanam Urvarukamiva bandhanan mrtyor mukshiya mamritat.
Om. We worship and adore you, O three-eyed one, O Shiva. We meditate on the Three-eyed reality which permeates and nourishes all like a fragrance. May we be liberated from death for the sake of immortality, even as the cucumber is severed from bondage to the creeper.
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, the third eye signifies the giver of knowledge, which destroys ignorance and releases us from the cycle of death and rebirth.
A searcher, through this mantra, asks the three looked at Lord with characteristic aroma to let him/her leave this body as cucumber natural product leaves its skin. Nonetheless, stay away from an inopportune passing.
Right off the bat, each individual should live to pick up the information on self. On the off chance that somebody kicks the bucket early, that open door is lost. In this way, when the opportunity arrives, the searcher requests to calm him/her without any problem. Anaayasena Maranam (Death without trouble) is the ask, in short.
Expectation this makes a difference. Good karma and God favor!
Urvarukam iva bandhanaan mrityor maksheeya ma amritaat." I will write the Anvaya first. Sugandhim, Pustivardhanam,Trayambakam Yajaamahe. Mrityoho bandanaan urvaarukam iva muksheeya. Amritaat ma.
Now, the meaning. We propitiate/adore Trayambaka, the father of the three world; also means the three eyed god, who is also sugandhim, the bestower of fragrance and Pusti vardhana, the increaser/enhancer of potency. May I be released from the bondage of death like a ripe cucumber from its stalk, but may I never be detached from immortality.
Creatures invariably undergo six changes. They are:-Childhood, adolescence, youth, middle age, old age and death. Death is discarding the present body and assuming the new one, like we change our clothes. The soul as such is unaffected these changes. For ex: the empty space inside the coconut is unaffected by the changes which the coconut undergoes or when we chap it to drink. Thus the soul which is pure consciousness in nature is imperishable, indestructible, eternal. It is pure consciousness which is imprisoned in the three tiered body i.e. physical, subtle and causal body. Thus the soul is unmanifest, immutable something marvellous to speak about.
Mahamrityunjay Mantra is the most important prayer in Hinduism, it is recited by worshippers to make those devotees who are on their deathbed to reach salvation.
The meaning of the mantra is that if somebody dies while reciting this mantra by heart, they will be liberated from the cycle of birth and death. The mantra was composed in 2nd century AD and it's still chanted as one of the ten holy chants -- "Panchashati"--in Hinduism today. It means: "May God give me protection". The mantras were chanted by Yogi Swatmarama for his guru - Gaudapada .
