Shanti mantras, prayers for peace found in the Upanishads, are often recited at the beginning or end of worship or study to invoke divine beneficence in various forms. All shanti mantras end with Om and three repetitions of shanti, the Sanskrit word for peace.
Shanti mantras are regularly recited on the Siddha Yoga path to nurture our awareness of the supreme peace that exists within all of us, regardless of our external circumstances. This practice in turn supports us to take action to cultivate peace in our daily lives, in our communities, and on our shared planet.
You can listen to, recite, and reflect on shanti mantras as a means to call forth peace from within yourself and to envision it pervading the world.
