A Hindu Prayer for Peace
O God, lead us from the unreal to the Real.
O God lead us from darkness to light.
O God, lead us from death to immortality.
Shanti, Shanti, Shanti unto all.
O 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 your Vedic Law propagate peace all through the world.
May all things be a source of peace to us.
And may your peace itself bestow peace on all, and
May that peace come to me also.
