zaiNt ma> -�nti mantr� (Mantras for Peace)

The following verses are all �nti mantras. The �nti mantra is recited for peace. It is traditionally recited before chanting other mantras, before we begin the studies and at the beginning of any program.

May Bhagwan protect both of us. May we be nourished together. May we work together. May our studies be brilliant. May we not fight with each other.

Peace. Peace. Peace.

(Note: Here the phrase 'both of us' refer to the teacher and student. This mantra captures the very essence of teaching and learning. Learning is a joint exploration by the Guru and the disciples. The phrase 'our studies' says that it's not the all-knowing teacher teaching the ignorant student, but both making a joint effort in understanding.)
