Teachings on Peace – Atharva Veda

Peace be on earth,
Peace be in the skies,
Peace be in heaven,
Peace be in the waters,
Peace be upon plants,
Peace be upon trees;
May the gods grant me Peace
May all gods grant me Peace
May peace be generated by these invocations; Peace.

By these invocations, all-encompassing invocations, I appease all that is terrible here, all that is cruel, all that is evil; may all that be peaceful, may all that be propitious, may all be tranquil for us.  


Atharva Veda, 19.9.14
