We worship Lord Shiva to liberate.us.from.death It is important to understand the meaning of the words as this makes the repetition meaningful and brings forth the desired results. • • AUM is not spelt out in the Rig-Veda, but has to be added to the beginning of all Mantras as given in an earlier Mantra of the Rig-Veda addressed to Lord Ganesh the son of Lord Shiva TRYAMBAKKAM refers to the Three eyes of Lord Shiva. 'Trya' means.Three' and 'Ambakam' means eyes.

Thus in this word, we are referring to God as Omniscient (Brahma), Omnipresent (Vishnu) and Omnipotent (Shiva). . YAJAMAHE means, "We sing Thy praise". SUGANDHIM refers to His fragrance (of knowledge, presence and strength i.e. three aspects) as being the best and always spreading around.

Savitur " or the " Sun God "and also symbolizes Lord Brahma the Omniscient Creator. Of the Universe In this manner He is also the Father (Genitor) of all. URVAAROKAMEVA - 'URVA' means "VISHAL" or big and powerful or deadly. 'AAROOKAM' means 'Disease'. Thus URVAROOKA means deadly and overpowering diseases. (The CUCUMBER interpretation given in various places is also correct for the word URVAROOKAM). The diseases are also of three kinds caused by the influence (in the negative) of the three Guna's and are ignorance (Avidya etc), falsehood (Asat ) as even though Lord Vishnu is everywhere, we fail to perceive Him and are guided by our insight and other senses and weaknesses (Shadripu ). a constraint of this physical body and Shiva is all powerful). BANDANAAN means to be bound down. Thus read with URVAROOKAMEVA, it means 'I am bound down by deadly and overpowering diseases'. MRITYORMOOKSHEYA means to deliver us from death (both premature death in this Physical world and from the never-ending cycle of deaths due to re-birth) for the sake of Mokshya (Nirvana or final emancipation from re-birth). MAAMRITAAT means 'please give me some Amritam (life rejuvinating nectar). Read with the previous word, it means that we are praying for some 'Amrit' to get out of the death inflicting diseases as well as the cycle of re-birth.
