The Mahamrityunjaya Mantra ( "great death-conquering mantra"), also called the Tryambakam Mantra, is a verse of the Rigveda (RV 7.59.12).It is addressed to Tryambaka "the three-eyed one", an epithet of Rudra, later identified with Shiva.[1][2] The verse also recurs in the Yajurveda (TS 1.8.6.i; VS 3.60)[1]
The Mahamritryunjaya Mantra was found by Rishi Markandey. It was a secret Mantra, and Rishi Markandey was the only one in the world who knew this Mantra. The Moon was once in trouble, cursed by King Daksh. Rishi Markandey gave the Mahamritryunjay Mantra to Sati, Daksh's daughter, for the Moon. This is how the mantra came into common knowledge.
Along with the Gayatri mantra it is one of the most widely known mantras of contemporary Hinduism.
The mantra reads:
In Devanagari:

urvrukam iva bandhann mtyormukya mmtt ...more
