May there be happiness for all people. May the rulers righteously rule the earth. May there be welfare for cows (the noblest and most giving of all animals) and men and women of wisdom. May the clouds rain at proper time. May the earth be rich in grains. May the land be free from famine. May men and women of wisdom be fearless. May all be happy. May all be free from disease. May all enjoy prosperity. May none experience sorrow. Lead me (by giving knowledge) from the unreal to the real from the darkness (of ignorance) to the light (of knowledge) from death (sense of limitation) to immortality (limitlessness, liberation) Peace, peace, peace.


Oh God, lead us from the unreal to the Real. Oh God, lead us from darkness to light. Oh God, lead us from death to immortality. Shanti, Shanti, Shanti unto all. Oh Lord God almighty, may there be peace in celestial regions. May there be peace on earth. May the waters be appeasing. May herbs be wholesome, and may trees and plants bring peace to all. May all beneficent beings bring peace to us. May thy Vedic Law propagate peace all through the world. May all things be a source of peace to us. And may thy peace itself, bestow peace on all, and may that peace come to me also.


May my intellect be steady without agitation.
May it be clear without anger or passion.
May the brilliant light of the sun beam though my intellect so
that perception of the world may be clear, my discrimination
subtle, my judgment correct and quick, and my
comprehension of persons and situations precise and wise.


My Lord God, through whom strength is made perfect in weakness, I pray to you, give me the strength I need. You have said, that to your children who have no might, you will increase strength. I am weak. Bless me with a measure of strength, as may be sufficient for me. When I am tempted by evil, deliver me, by granting me the power to overcome it. When my daily work is too hard for me, give me the strength to be able to do it. If my burden oppresses me beyond my bearing, lighten my load, that my strength may be equal to it. You have helped many, I beg you to help me. Thank you my Lord.
