The Shanti Mantras are “Peace Mantras” that are listed in the Upanishads and are used for calming the mind. The post shares with you powerful Shanti Mantras to calm the mind.

Shanti Mantras always end with the syllable Om (Aum) together with the three utterances of the word “Shanti.”

In fact, Shanti Mantras invokes peace and removes obstacles in the three realms encompassing:

  • Physical or “Adhi-Bhautika” realm that can be the source of obstacles from the external world like natural calamities, wild animals, and even people, etc.
  • Divine or “Adhi-Daivika” realm that can usher in obstacles from the extra-sensory world of ghosts, spirits, deities, and demigods
  • Internal or “Adhyaatmika” realm that can be the source of obstacles coming from one’s own body and mind. It can take the form of pain, laziness, diseases, and absent-mindedness

So, these are the three classes of obstacles in the form of Adhi-Bhautika, Adhi Daivika, and Adhyaatmika. Shanti mantras are recited to pacify the obstacles from these three realms.
