"Om Trayambakam Yajamahe Sugandham Pushtivardhanam Urvaruka miva Bandhanam Mrityomukshyeeya Maamritaat"
We worship the Three-eyed One (Lord Siva). Who is fragrant and who nourishes well all beings. May He liberate us from death for the sake of immortality, Even as the cucumber is severed from bondage to the creeper.
