यजामहे सुगन्धिं पुष्टिवर्धनम्. बन्धनान्मृत्योर्मुक्षीय मामृतात्.
Om triyambakaum yajamahe Sughandhim pushti vardhnam Urva rukimav bandhnat Mrityor mukshiye mamrtat
Om tryambakam yajāmahe sughandhim pushti vardhanam urvārukam iva bandhanān mtyor muksīya māmrtāt
यजामहे सुगन्धिं पुष्टिवर्धनम्.
Om tryambakam yajāmahe sugandhim pustivardhanam
Urvārukam iva bandhanān mtyor muksīya māmrtāt
Tryambakam means "three eyes", the eyes of Shiva. The first two eyes represent duality: past and future, subject and object...Reciting this Mantra is like asking Shiva (tryambakam) to open our third eye.
This Mantra is a “Mantra moksha”, a Mantra of liberation, a Mantra of immortality. In other words, it is supposed to help you realize the consciousness that was never born nor will it die and destroy the illusion that causes the fundamental fear of the ego:fear of death.
Mantra translation: Maha Mrityunjaya mantra
""Om tryambakam yajāmahe sugandhim pustivardhanam
Urvārukam iva bandhanān mtyor muksīya māmrtāt"
The Third Eye Wisdom, Spiritual Vision and Unity
"Om We worship Tryambaka (the three-eyed god Rudra / Shiva),
one who is fragrant and cares for all beings.
Like a (ripe) pumpkin (Urvaruka) falls from its trunk,
I want to become free from slavery (Bandhana) (to the world), from mortality (Mrityor to immortality (Amirita)".
"Let us meditate on the three eyes of Reality
Whose fragrance permeates all beings.
For Love of Immortality, may It free us from death
As easily as cutting the stem that binds the cucumber".
But, as always, a Mantra can only be fully understood by meditating on each word.

Tryambakam - Powerful Mantra: Interpretation
- Om- cosmic sound
- Tryambakam - three-eyed or three-way : refers to Shiva; refers to the world of duality and the world of unity. Tryambaka means: Shiva can be experienced in the world of duality - and he leads us to Oneness. we want to become instruments of the divine and work in this world of duality - let God work through us.
- Yajamahe - We worship, we meditate: homage is a good basic attitude in life: we want to worship God in everything: God manifests in a seemingly dualistic world - God is everywhere. Therefore, a seeker can cultivate the attitude of reverence as a "normal feeling" throughout the day.
- Sugandhim: Su means "good", "Gandha" means "smell", among other things. Sugandhim means "fragrant". The smell is distributed in the atmosphere: God is perceptible everywhere and, in reality, God is perceived as the good behind everything. We can experience, feel and be filled with God everywhere.
- Pushtivardhanam: He cares about all beings who increase their wealth: God cares about all beings. We can trust God. Even though sometimes we don't understand why something is happening, we can trust something meaningful. God is love - in love we experience God. We can always be thankful that God cares about us.
- Urvaruka - ripe pumpkin: may we ripen. May we grow spiritually. May we grow spiritually. May we be patient.
- Bandhanan - Bonding, Bondage: First of all, I must recognize that I am bound, I am in a state of bondage. Then comes the wish: can we lose bondage. May we lose attachments, expectations, prejudices, etc.
- Mrityor - Mortality: Recognize: All things earthly are mortal, subject to impermanence. All goods will pass. Your body will die. Everyone will die (physically). Everything that has a beginning also has an end.
- Mukshiya - untie, free yourself
- Naamritat - lead me to immortality (Amrita): Verily , you are immortal Your true self, Atman, is one with Brahman, the soul of the world.
So in the Maha Mrityunjaya mantra, the meaning is very deep. Mahamrityunjaya Mantra contains everything important about the spiritual path.

- Sending thoughts of benevolence: "I open myself to light and love, I ask for spiritual guidance, peace be on earth, may all beings be well, may all do experience of the work of the Supreme, that they all behave in the same manner appropriate for their good and the good of all beings"
- Breathe calmly and evenly. Breathe for 3-4 seconds. Exhale for 3-4 seconds
- Recite the Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra mentally. Connect it with the breath. There are several ways to relate the mantra to the breath:
Most popular: Divide the mantra into four parts:
- Inhale - Om Tryambakam Yajaamahe

- Exhale - Mrityor Mukshiiya Maamritaat

For those who take long breaths:
Repeat full mantra while inhaling, repeat full mantra while exhaling.
You can also ignore the breath and let the mantra flow.
As you breathe in, imagine the light, the blessings, the power entering you. If you are related to a Master, Shiva, or another specific aspect of God, imagine the Master or God/Goddess bringing you light, blessing, strength, benevolence. Let yourself be touched internally in the heart.
As you breathe out, imagine the light, the benevolence, the love flowing from you in all directions or to the people and events that come to mind.
After a while, let the breath calm down and feel the power of the mantra in the chakra, for example, in the Anahata chakra / (heart chakra) or in the Ajna chakra (point between the eyebrows).
Finally, let the words of the mantra fall, enjoy peace, silence, nearness, closeness to God
