Text of the Mrutyumjaya Mantra

Trayambakan yajamahe

Sugandim pustivardhanam

Urvarkamiva bandhanat

Mrtyormuksiya mamrtat

Ohm Shanthi Shanti Shanti

I bow down to the three-eyed Lord Shiva who is full of sweet fragrance and who nourishes all human beings.
May he free me from the bondage of life and death and grant me immortality, even as the cucumber is severed from the bondage to the creeper.
Om peace, peace, peace.
