Oṃ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ….!!!

The man who is blessed with the final outcome of selfless action
who dwells in God-the root of all beings,
who has forsaken desire for the fruits of action
the God who was the goal of his action is no longer distant from him,
achieves the state of sublime peace
beyond which there is no greater peace
beyond which he will never again know restlessness.
But the wayfarer,
who is still on his way and attached
(he has to be attached because the “fruit” of his action, God, is still unattained)
to the consequence of his action,
fettered by it.
So desires continue to arise until the moment of attainment,
the worshiper has to be on his guard right till that point.
Most revered Gurudev, uses to say:
“Mark me, maya prevails if we are even in the least removed from God
he is removed from us.”
Even if the attainment is to be tomorrow,
today the worshiper is at best only an ignorant man.
So the questing worshiper ought not to be careless.
Lord Krishn sings in Bhagavad Gita:
“Propelling all living things
that bestride a body-which is but a contrivance-by his maya,
O Arjun,
God abides in the hearts of all beings.’’
“Seek refuge with all your heart,
O Bharat,
in that God by whose grace you will attain to repose
the everlasting, ultimate bliss.’’
So if we have to meditate,
we should do it within the realm of the heart.
The heart is the true abode of God.

    The Shanti Mantras or “Peace Mantras” are Hindu prayers for Peace (Shanti) found in Upanishads. Generally they are recited at the beginning and end of religious rituals and discourses.

    Shanti Mantras are invoked in the beginning of some topics of Upanishads. They are supposed to calm the mind of the reciter and environment around him/her. Reciting them is also believed to be removing any obstacles for the task being started.

    Shanti Mantras always end with three utterances of word “Shanti” which means “Peace”. The Reason for uttering three times is for calming and removing obstacles in three realms which are:

    “Physical” or Adhi-Bhautika,
    “Divine” or Adhi-Daivika and
    “Internal” or Adhyaatmika

    According to the scriptures of Hinduism sources of obstacles and troubles lie in these three realms.

    Physical or Adhi-Bhautika realm can be source of troubles/obstacles coming from external world, such as from wild animals, people, natural calamities etc.

    Divine or Adhi-Daivika realm can be source of troubles/obstacles coming from extra-sensory world of spirits, ghosts, deities, demigods/angels etc.

    Internal or Adhyaatmika realm is source of troubles/obstacles arising out of one’s own body and mind, such as pain, diseases, laziness, absent-mindedness etc.

    These are called “Tapa-Traya” or three classes of troubles. When Shanti mantras are recited, obstacles fr om these realms are believed to be pacified.
