Meaning of the Shanti Mantra
1. “OM Aapyayantu Mama-Angani Vaak”:
We invoke to the Supreme God that may we grow very vigorous, with joyful interest and enthusiasm. May our limbs become vigorous. May our speech become vigorous with affirmations and conviction.
2. “Praanah-Chakshu Shrotram-Atho”:
May the vital air or energy, our eyes and ears become vigorous too.
3. “Balam-Indriyaani Cha Sarvaani”:
May there be strength in our senses and everything in us.
We are thus asking for our energy, vitality, vehicles, senses, mind and emotions to become vigorous and are also asking for strength.
4. “Sarvam Brahma-Upanishadam”:
All is Brahman of the Upanishads. It implies that in Upanishads itself, Brahman is there.
5. “Ma-Aham Brahma Niraakuryaam Maa maa”:
May we never reject Brahman. Never, never!
Never may we reject anyone. May we not reject any aspect of Brahman. Brhaman is in everyone!
6. “Bhahman Niraakarot”:
Also, may Brahman not reject us.
7. “Aniraakaranam Astu, Aniraakaranam Me Astu”:
May there be no denial by Brahman. And may there be no denial of Brahman by me. May Brahman, including everyone, not reject or deny existence of each other (all are part of Brahman).
8. “Tat-Aatmani Nirate Ya Upanishatsu Dharmaah”:
Delighting in the Atman, may all the virtues that are mentioned in the Upanishads… (continued in next line)
9. “Te Mayi Santu”:
May they (all these virtues) be present or fostered in me by my effort. May I acquire all that by being vigorous by all my senses, energy, vitality, body and mind.
10. “Te Mayi Santu”:
Reaffirming the same. May we acquire and internalize them.
11. “OM Shanti Shanti Shanti Hi”:
By chanting OM, we request Supreme Parabrahman to bestow us with peace on all the lower three planes of physical, emotional and mental, as peace is already permeating in all the planes higher. Thus, the word shanti here is repeated three times and is not a mere coincidence.
Another significance of this reiteration is for beseeching harmony in case of discords that are known to us, freedom from hostility due to misunderstandings that are unintentional or forgotten and finally for calmness within from any disappointments or pain. You can let go of this hurt and resentment by the practice of forgiveness.
We first invoke for a healthy body, vitality and mind at the start of the study. That is an essential precondition to start any work. Only one who is vigorous, dedicated, strong, devoted, and focused can pursue the Upanishads. Brahman is part of the Upanishads. We then request that may Brahman not reject or deny us and that even we do not reject or deny Him. May we delight in our Atma (Self). All virtues specified in the Upanishads be cultivated in us by our rigorous effort. May we work towards it and achieve it!
