Universal Anthem

Sanskrit                                                       Transliteration

स्वस्ति प्रजाभ्यः परिपलयन्तम्                      svasti prajaabhyaH paripalayantam

न्यायेन मार्गेन महिम् महिसः                        nyaayena maargena mahim mahisaH

गो ब्राह्मणेभ्यः शुभमस्तु नित्यम्                    go braahmanebhyaH shubham astu nityam

लोक समस्त सुखिनो भवन्तु                         loka samasta sukhin bhavantu

काले वर्षतु पर्जन्यः पृथ्वी सस्यासलिनि           kaale varSatu parjanyaH prithvi sasyaasalini

देशो यम् क्षोभरहितः ब्राह्मणः सन्तु निर्भयः      desho yam xobharahitaH braahmaNaH santu nirbhayaH

ॐ शांति शांति शांति                                 Aum shaantiH shaantiH shaantiH

May each and every person strive to achieve inner harmony – essential memory of the heart that safeguards human compassion.

May you remember the Profound Prayer of Peace resounded by the Rishis from timeless beginning for the noble benefit of all species.

May you instill the spirit of love, compassion, and nurturance for all lives, and may your awareness for all lives — humans, animals, trees, earth, space, air, water, fire, and, indeed, every speck of sand — grow in quantum leaps.

May you shift your consciousness to generate reverence for all life.

May you never participate in, or contribute to, the pain of another person or species.

May you encourage others to desist partaking in the killing and eating of the animals.

As long as humans kill animals, there can be no peace.

May everyone be prosperous. May the peacemakers righteously rule the Earth.

Let the animals and people of wisdom be protected at all times.

May all be happy. May the rains come at the proper time. May the Earth produce grains.

May the world be free from famine. May the people of contemplation have no cause for fear.
