Prayers for World Peace ~ Atman NItyananda

Prayers for World Peace

When you sit for meditation in the morning and evening hours, send out currents of your love and peace to all living beings. By repeating these prayers from the heart we create divine vibrations which permeate the astral and mental worlds as well as elevate and purify our mind and fill it with sattva. These prayers prepare the mind in the best possible way for the practice of meditation. 

You can repeat them also any time during the day, when you are irritated, upset, frustrated,  in stress, anxiety, etc.; their vibrations will bring peace in your mind and will remove the negative energies form your energy field.  

Remember that is important to say the prayer with feeling because the feeling fecundates the thought and becomes creative. Simplicity, one pointed mind, faith and awareness of the silent space within are also important components in prayer.

First we say all these verses below three times  the whole serie:

Sarvesham swasti bhavatu - May auspiciousness be unto all;
Sarvesham santir bhavatu - May peace be unto all;
Sarvesham purnam bhavatu - May fullness be unto all;
Sarvesham mangalam bhavatu - May prosperity be unto all;

Om sarve bhavantu sukhinah
- May all be prosperous and happy;
sarve santu niramayah - May all be free from illness;
sarve bhadrani pashyantu - May all See what is Auspicious;
ma kashcid duhkhabhaagbhavet - May none suffer;
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti - Om peace, peace, peace

Asato mā sadgamaya - From ignorance, lead me to truth;
Tamasomā jyotir gamaya - From darkness, lead me to light;
Mrityormāamritam gamaya - From death, lead me to immortality
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti - Om peace, peace, peace

Om Purnamadah, Purnamidam, Purnat, Purnamudacyate
Purnnashya, Puurnnamadaya, Purnamevavashissyate
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti
Om, That is Full, This also is Full, From Fullness comes that Fullness,
Taking Fullness from Fullness, Fullness Indeed Remains.
Om Peace, Peace, Peace.

We continue with the verses below;  we repeat each one of them three or more times according our convenience and then we continue with the next one

Lokah samastah sukhino bhavantu - May happiness be unto the whole world.  
(3X) or more times
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti 

Peace, Love, harmony all over the world
 (3X) or more times
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti 

May all beings be happy;
May all beings be blissful;
May all beings be peaceful;
(3X) or more times
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti 

At the end we close the prayers by saying:

May all these prayers be realized for the well being of all. 
 Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti

Om Tat Sat 

NOTE: Each one will find its own way to do the prayers and also to select only some of them. My personal experience is that by doing this sequence of prayers my mind becomes serene, luminus and light and subsequently I can easily do japa nama and meditation.
