There are many shanti mantras in the Hindu beliefs and, as the word ‘shanti’ suggests, they’re chanted for peace. Sarveshaam Swastir Bhavatu is considered as one of the most powerful mantra from the Brhadaranyaka Upanishads.
The chanting of mantras in the Hindu religion is considered to be very auspicious and caters to individual spiritual awakening provided the mantras are understood and believed in while chanting. Chanting is the process of ingraining the meaning along with the words. The purpose is to connect with the universe through the semantics of love, peace, and awareness.
Mantras are also a means to connect with the ancestors of humanity, where, in the Hindu culture, it is a request for an inner awakening to connect with all the positivity in the universe. Energies are said to be released and these energies create a interrelation with the surrounding energies to bring in a good vibe. This vibe is supposed to add a spring to one’s physical energy and desires, which is the sole purpose of awakening one’s deepest connect to life and living. Not only do these mantras connect you to your surrounding, they also help you to emanate goodwill and goodness towards others. The process largely helps in clearing out any toxicity or blocked feelings in order to open yourself to spirituality and the universe as such. The universe is not ethical and, hence, does not always work with an ethical construct in mind. So, it is very important to understand that whatever the universe suggests needs one’s better judgement to interact with. This better judgement can also be attained through meditation and chanting. Meditation requires a subject and chanting helps in providing a subject of goodwill and prosperity to all.
Sarveshaam swastir bhavatu is about one and all irrespective of any prejudices. The mantra essentially means peace for one and all, and in every possible area of life.
