Shiva Mantras

The Maha Mritunjaya Mantra is as follows:
"Aum Trayambakam Yajaamahey Sugandhim Pushti Vardhanam
Urvaarukamiva Bandhanaath Mrutyor Muksheeya Maamritaat"

Lord Shiva is the three eyed god. Shiva is always perfumed. He fosters all the creatures of the Universe. Lord Shiva releases from death for the sake of immortality, as cucumber detaches its bondage of the vine. We worship Lord Shiva to

Sarva Mangal Manglaye Shivay Sarvaarth Sadhike
Sharanye Trayambake Gauri Narayaani Namostu Te

Meaning: Oh thy divine couple Shiva and Parvati ! Oh,thee,the protectors of the universe! Along with Lords Brahma and Vishnu, ee pray to You for our well-being, prosperity and the enlightenment of our souls.
