ॐ सह नाववतु ।
सह नौ भुनक्तु ।
सह वीर्यं करवावहै ।
तेजस्वि नावधीतमस्तु मा विद्विषावहै ।
ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥

Om Saha Nau-Avatu 
Saha Nau Bhunaktu 
Saha Viiryam Karavaavahai 
Tejasvi Nau-Adhiitam-Astu Maa Vidvissaavahai 
Om Shaantih Shaantih Shaantih

this is a Sanskrit chant, also known as the shanti mantra. shanti means peace in Sanskrit. the energetics of the mantras within sahana vavatu invoke shared experience, to remind us all that the point of life is to grow together. it encourages us to commune with one another, to radiate the truth, and not to focus on others’ or our own shortcomings, but to celebrate and direct our energy towards evolution!

ritual: chant whenever you are in a group to invoke harmony + energetically line a foundation of mutual growth.
