Mantra for Freedom from Fear

abhayaṃ naḥ karaty antarikṣam abhayaṃ 

dyāvā-pṛthivī ubhe ime 

abhayaṃ paścād abhayaṃ purastāduttarād

udharād abhayaṃ no astu 

abhayaṃ mitrād abhayaṃ amitrād

abhayaṃ jñātād abhayaṃ parokṣāt

abhayaṃ naktam abhayaṃ divā naḥ

sarvā āśā mama mitraṃ bhavantu


dṛte dṛṃha mā mitrasya mā cakṣuṣā

sarvāṇi bhūtāni samīkṣantāṁ 

mitrasyāhaṃ cakṣuṣā sarvāṇi bhūtāni samīkṣe

mitrasya cakṣuṣā samīkṣāmahe

 oṃ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ

Abhayaṃ means no fear because there is no danger.If all are friends to me and I am friends to all, from whom have I any danger? Whom may I have cause to fear?

 May the sky grant us abhayaṃ. 

May the heaven and earth both grant us abhayaṃ.  

May I have abhayaṃ from behind. 

Abhayaṃ from the front.  

From above and below, may there be abhayaṃ for us.

Abhayaṃ from the friend,

Abhayaṃ from the foe.

Abhayaṃ from what is known to me.  

Abhayaṃ from what is beyond the eyes.

Abhayaṃ in the night.  Abhayaṃ in the day. 

May all directions, all quarters, be friends unto me. 

O Divine Mother, upholder of the universe, grant me strength that I may see all beings with the eyes of a friend.  
May all beings look at me with the eyes of a friend. 

May they all, all of us living beings, look at each other with the eyes of a friend. 

For when all is friend, there is abhayaṃ.

Om.  Peace. Peace. Peace.
