MahaMrityunjaya Mantra is a mantra of lord Shiva, and only Lord Shiva can help us conquering death. As mentioned in our Vedas that our life, struggle and death are taken cared by Bhrama-Vishnu-Mahesh respectively.

If we recite the same mantra with a prefix and suffix, it becomes more powerful. The mantra with the addition of the beej (a small part of any mantra is known as beej or seed) mantra is:
“Om haun jun sah, om bhurbhuvaw swah,
Om tryambakam yajamahe sugandhim pusti-vardhanam
Urvarukam Iva bandhan mrityormukshiya mamritat Om.
Swahbhuvahbhuh Om, sahjun, haun, Om.”
The whole mantra with prefix and suffix means: I venerate the Supreme Being, the creator of Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva, he whose fame pervades the entire universe, he who is the prime source of the universe and bestows boons and supernatural powers to those who worship him. We request him in form of prayer pray to liberate us from death and this mortal world, which has separated us from him like a cucumber separates itself from the creeper, and thus grant us immortality.
