May there be peace in the higher regions;

May there be peace in the firmament;

May there be peace on earth.

May the waters flow peacefully;

May all the divine powers bring unto us peace.

The supreme Lord is peace.

May we all be in peace, peace, and only peace.


The Vedas, the primary texts of Hinduism containing hymns, incantations, and rituals. There are four Vedas: the Rig Veda, Sama Veda, Yajur Veda, and Atharva Veda.


• Pray "May There Be Peace" using a rosary, adding your own personal wishes for peace.

• Recite this as a morning prayer, thinking about one personal way you can walk in peace this day.

• Choose one of the italicized lines, copy it on a small slip of paper, keep it in your pocket, and read it several times as a reminder of where you are sending your energies throughout the day.
