May all sentient beings be at peace,
may no one suffer from illness,
May all see what is auspicious, may no one suffer.
Om peace, peace, peace.

A very popular mantra, the original source is untraceable, some sources on the internet say that it is from Brihadaranyaka Upanishad (1.4.14) but that’s not true! We did do a background check on this and Brihadaranyaka Upanishad does not have this shlok. There were many other instances where we found this shlok either at the beginning of the book or at the end in a form of prayer.
Nonetheless, such an altruistic shlok from our ancestors. How broad their minds were! Please share!
