सर्व कल्यानि प्रार्थना |
Entreaty for Beneficence of All Beings

This is one of a set of well-known and auspicious mantras jointly called 'Sarva Kalyana Prarthana' or 'entreaties for the beneficence of all beings'. These mantras recognize the connectedness of all, and that our own prosperity -- especially the spiritual variety -- cannot really come without seeking also to increase that of those around us. It is chanted three times.


सर्वेषां स्वस्ति भवतु।

सर्वेषां शान्तिर्भवतु॥

सर्वेषां पूर्णं भवतु।

सर्वेषां मङ्गलं भवतु॥

ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥


sarveṣāṁ svasti bhavatu

sarveṣāṁ śāntirbhavatu

sarveṣāṁ pūrṇaṁ bhavatu

sarveṣāṁ maṅgalaṁ bhavatu

Aum śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ


May all have good fortune.

May all attain peace.

May all become Whole.

May all be blessed.

Aum shanti shanti shanti
