Mahamrityunjay Mantra Word by Word Meaning in English

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.


Tryambakam: Trya means three. Ambakam means eyes. It means the three eyes of the Absolute, which are the processes of creation, existence, and dissolution, as well as the other triads, which are part of AUM. The three “eyes” means experiencing these three stages and triads at one time, from the higher, all pervasive vantage point of the Absolute.

Yajamahe: We rejoice in meditation on all of this.

Sugandhim: Means fragrance. Like a spreading fragrance, all of this permeates the whole of existence, while at the same time being that existence

Pushtivardhanam: Means that which sustains and nourishes all. Thus, the fragrance that permeates all is the sustainer of all beings, while also the essence of all beings.

Urvarukamiva: Urva means big and powerful. Arukam means disease, like the spiritual diseases of ignorance and untruth, which are like the death of Wisdom or Truth.

Bandhanan: Means bound down, as in bound down to the ignorance and untruth.

Mrityor: Means ignorance and untruth.

Mukshiya: Means liberation from the cycles of physical, mental, and spiritual death.

Maamritat: Means please give me rejuvenating nectar, so as to have this liberation, like the process of severing the cucumber from the creeping vine.

    Title of the Idea :- Missing path to the world is world.
    Idea Summery :- Word is the origin to the evolution of the world. Dual-ism is the key Origin to the entire creation, to unlock the great mysteries, which nobody recognized in the word formation as well as world formation. Word formation process is the source to transformation of the eternal world into the fruitful society. Mental health is fundamental to the social health.

    World of Word = Dual-ism of the entire Universe.
    “Word formation” = “World formation”.
    Example:- without pivotal point, there is no circular movement.
    Similarly with out word, there is no world.
