The shanti mantra Om Dyauh Shanti is a prayer for universal peace that is found in the Yajur Veda. During Gurumayi’s Birthday Satsang 2019, this mantra was recited as part of an offering of blessings for peace in the world.
Implicit in this shanti mantra is the understanding that peace in the outer world and peace within our own being are connected: each supports the other. When we recite the sacred syllables of Om Dyauh Shanti, we give voice to our benevolent intention that peace pervade all of creation and ask that we experience the same peace within ourselves.
The audio recording featured here is a recitation of Om Dyauh Shanti by Santosh Mudgal, a Brahmin priest who has performed many sacred rites in Gurudev Siddha Peeth and Shree Muktananda Ashram. You may offer this prayer for peace by listening to and reciting along with Santosh bhau. As you do so, notice the effect of the mantra’s vibrations on your mind and on the environment around you.
