Jeete Hain Chal...

The dots connect and eventually, it leads to some or other kind of discovery ultimately.

Usually the discovery is regarding self, rather self-realisation. It could be also about something, which you never knew and somehow the universe conspires you to discover that.

With a string of events, the discovery unfolds...

A few days back, I briefly watched the trailer of the movie "Neerja". And in that short trailer, the song "Jeete Hain Chal" was playing in the background. There was thins thing in the song, which immediately hooked me on to it. {Its playing right now, on loop}

Deprived of a working internet connection, I decided to check the song, once I am back to civilisation.

While returning back to my abode, in the flight, I saw the air-hostess wearing a badge on their arms, proclaiming "I am Neerja". Suddenly I was reminded of my resolve to check the song, and the first thing in the morning I did was to complete the resolve.

The beginning of the song is so calm and serene, with couple of mantras, that I was immediately prompted to pause the song and search for the mantra which was playing.

And this is the discovery of the year so far, I found; it was Maha Mritunjay Mantra.

Om tryambakam yajamahe, Sugandhim pushti vardhanam;
Urvarukamiva bandhanan, mrityor mukshiya yamamritat.
We worship and adore you, O three-eyed one, O Lord Shiva.
 You are the fragrance of life itself, the One who nourishes us, restores our health, and causes us to thrive.  
In due time, just like the stem of a cucumber weakens, and the gourd is freed from the vine, O lord, free us from attachment and death, and do not withhold immortality.

Though I had read and heard about this mantra for long, but never actually made an effort to find about it or read more.

I know one other mantra, called Gayatri Mantra, which I chant usually regularily, in the morning.

But this discovery of Maha Mritunjay Mantra was a pleasant and exciting discovery, on road to make up my spiritual framework.

The lyrics of the song "Jeete Hain Chal" itself is so inspiring and motivating.

I dont remember playing any song on loop this year so far, except the song from, The Maccabees - "Grew up at midnight"; JHC is going to be the second "looper", as what I call these of the year.

PS: My writing is very rusty, as after October 2014, I am writing on the blog for the first time.
