That in which the mind field of all living beings is woven and interwoven, may that my mind be filled with beautiful and benevolent thoughts.

ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥
Om shāntiḥ shāntiḥ shāntiḥ.
As a good charioteer controls and leads the horses with the reins held fast, in the same way, that which leads all the human beings with the reins of senses in its grip, that heart dwelling, most agile, speediest force in the universe, may that my mind be filled with beautiful and benevolent thoughts.
Om, Peace, Peace, Peace.
