Peace starts from putting starts from putting all your ‘pieces’ together, Integrity!


auṁ āpyāyantu mamāṇgāni vākprāṇaścakśuḥ śrotram-athobalam-indriyāṇi ca sarvāṇi |

sarvaṁ brahmopniṣadam mā’ham brahma nirākuryām mā mā brahma nirākarod-anirākaraṇamstva-nirākaraṇam me’stu |

tadātmani nirate ya upaniṣatsu dharmāste mayi santu te mayi santu ||

auṁ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ ||

anirākaraṇamstva-nirākaraṇam me’stu |

tadātmani nirate ya upaniṣatsu dharmāste mayi santu |

May all Dharma, the Sacred Truths declared by Upaniṣads be fully manifest and radiate in me, who, am integrated and authentically devoted to knowing the experience of that Truth, Ātmā, the Self.

May they manifest and radiate in me – mayi santu te mayi santu |

The declaration, Shanti Mantra. Actually this verse should be not be translated as ‘peace prayer’, it should be translated as ‘peace declaration.’ Understand. Here nobody is praying to anybody. No God is presupposed. No bargain is in the existence. No business deal is in existence. There will always be some said, unsaid understandings.

If you believe in certain things, certain actions will manifest from you, it’s 100% sure. I have always seen, people who do not commit and take responsibility – I can see very clearly, they make fun of our whole lifestyle. Anybody who believes the lifestyle we live in or Sangha, who loves the lifestyle, who believes the lifestyle, I have always seen, they take the responsibility, they fall in love with the responsibility, and active lifestyle. And I have also seen people cooking up their own reasons not to get involved and not to take responsibility. Starts from varied reasons, they are masters in finding reasons. Starts from headache to my kid is too small. But I have always seen, people who do not take the responsibility, do not get involved, do not love Me or the lifestyle I am teaching. When you love, you can’t keep quiet. When you fall in love with somebody, you will just radiate their lifestyle, their thought current. You will just manifest.

Some of the basic understandings – said, unsaid have their own impact in your actions and unactions. Understand, some of them are said, some of them are unsaid, but they decide the way you act or don’t act. The way you act or don’t act.

Here in this whole declaration, in this whole Shanti Mantra, nowhere said or unsaid way, even has the inference, nowhere anybody is praying to anybody. Nobody is praying here, so we should not call, translate this as Peace Prayer. One of the worst crimes against the whole humanity is – translating the Hindu scriptures without the context, purposefully, willfully to misrepresent and manipulate and using it to attack us, abuse us and building a wrong inner image about us.

 This is not peace prayer, this is Peace Declaration.

 Hinduism is authentically tradition of Peace. Our concept of generating wealth is peace based. Even our concepts of conflict resolutions are based on Peace. Even our wars are so many rules and regulations where only the valor is tested and established, wasting human life or brutal massacre was never allowed. Understand, there is so much, so much peace-centered tradition, authentically not just verbally. Because Hindu tradition is authentically peace centered, they know the secret – Peace starts from putting starts from putting all your ‘pieces’ together – Integrity. Putting all your pieces together is the first step for Peace.

So it starts with…

auṁ āpyāyantu mamāṇgāni vākprāṇaścakśuḥ śrotram-athobalam-indriyāṇi ca sarvāṇi |

sarvaṁ brahmopniṣadam mā’ham brahma nirākuryām mā mā brahma nirākarod-anirākaraṇamstva-nirākaraṇam me’stu |

tadātmani nirate ya upaniṣatsu dharmāste mayi santu te mayi santu ||

auṁ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ ||

If you see the whole declaration together, you can see – first integrating yourself …

auṁ āpyāyantu mamāṇgāni vākprāṇaścakśuḥ śrotram-athobalam-indriyāṇi ca sarvāṇi |

I am Sadāshiva. Let my limbs, speech, prāṇa, eyes, hearing, everything be fully matured and enriched. All is Brahman, Consciousness that is revealed in the Upanishads sarvaṁ brahmopniṣadam.

May I never deny the existence of Brahman, Sadāshiva. May I never have incompletion with Brahman, Sadāshiva, Consciousness which is Sadāshiva. May Brahman never deny me or withdraw Its grace from me. Let there be no separation. Let me have Completion with the Ultimate Consciousness, Sadāshiva. Let the Brahman be complete with me. So be it.

May all the Dharma, the Sacred Truths declared by Upaniṣads..

It is not just truths ‘powers’ also. Sacred truths, sacred experiences, sacred sentiments, sacred powers – when the sacred truths manifest through the intellect, head – they are Sacred Experiences. When the sacred truths manifest through the heart, emotion, emotional current, it’s called Sacred Sentiments. When the sacred truths manifest through your being, it is called Sacred Powers.

Let the sacred truths manifest as sacred experiences, sacred sentiments and sacred powers, fully manifest and radiate in me, who, am integrated and authentically devoted to knowing and experiencing that Truth, Ātmā, the Self  – tad ātmani nirate ya upaniṣatsu dharmāste.

May they manifest and radiate in me – mayi santu te mayi santu.

Keep this as your declaration today. This is one of the most powerful declarations to manifest all the experiences, sentiments, powers of Oneness.

Experience of Oneness is Shāstra.

Sentiments from the Oneness is Stotra.

Power from the Oneness is described as Sutras in Hindu tradition.

Experiences of Oneness is expressed as Shāstra. Experiences of Oneness is expressed as Shāstra. Sentiments of Oneness is expressed as Stotras. Powers of the Oneness is described as Sutras.

This is one of the most powerful declarations. Make this as your practice to manifest powers.
