The Mantra Currently On My Heart


Om Tryambhakam Yajamahe

Sugandhim Pushtivardhanam

Urvarukamiva Bandhanan

Mrityor Mukshiya Maamritat


1. We meditate on The Three eyed reality Which nourishes alI like a fragrance. May we be liberated from death for the sake of immortality, even as the cucumber is severed from the bondage of the stem.

2. (My favorite translation – more detailed) I meditate on, and surrender myself to, the Divine Being who embodies the power of will, the power of knowledge, and the power of action. I pray to the Divine Being who manifests in the form of fragrance in the flower of life and is the eternal nourisher of the plant of life. Like a skilful gardener, may the Lord the Life disentangle me from the binding forces of my physical, psychological, and spiritual foes. May the Lord of Immortality residing within me free me from death, decay and sickness and unite me with immortality.
