urvārukamiva bandhanān mrityor mukshiya māmritat
Content: Om, let us meditate on the infinitely merciful Lord Shiva’s grace. May his mercy liberate us from the grip of suffering, illness, birth and death, and let us experience the immortality of the soul.
Translation: Let us meditate on the Three-eyed reality which permeates everything like a fragrance and gives us well-being. May he sever us from our bondage to death as a rape cucumber is severed from its bondage to the vine. May he lead us to immortality and final liberation.
