Śanti Pataḥ – Śaṁ No
This is a Vedic peace mantra from the Taittirīya Upaniṣad.
May Mitra give us bliss (Śaṁ). May Varuṇa give us bliss.
May Aryaman give us bliss. May Indra and Bṛhaspati give us bliss.
May all-pervading Viṣṇu give us bliss.
I adore Brahman. I adore you Vāyu (the Wind God, Prāna, Breath).
You are certainly the perceivable Brahman.
You are the immediately perceptible Reality, I will declare.
I will declare the ṛtam (the Way). I will speak the Satyam (the Truth).
May that truth protect me. May it protect the Chanter (the teacher).
May it protect me. May it protect the Chanter.
Oṁ Peace, Peace, Peace.
