'Om tryambakam' prayer

  This is the prayer recited at the end of my yoga classes. It comes from my teacher, and his, going back to the Rig Veda. Feel free to join in or just stay with your breath and let it soothe your being.

Om Trayambakam Yajamahe

Sugandhim Pushtivardhanam

Urvarukamiva Bandhanan

Mrityor Muskshiya Mamritat

(x3)

 Om Shanti Shanti Shanti

 

Here is a modern translation:

We bow in gratitude to Shiva, the Lord of Yoga,

who is fragrant and who nourishes well all beings;

may He liberate us from death for the sake of immortality.

Om Peace Peace Peace

 

Here are the phonetics to help to recite it:

Om Treeam-bhakaam-Yajaa-mahae

Soogandimpush-tivaardhanaam

Oorvaa-rookamivaBandhanaan

Mritior-Mooksheeya-Maamritat

Om Shanti Shanti Shanti
