Lead me from the unreal to the real. Lead me from darkness to light. Lead from death to immortality. May all beings dwell in happiness. May all beings dwell in peace. May all beings attain oneness. May all beings attain auspiciousness. May all happiness be unto the whole world. We pay homage to the universal consciousness which nourishes all beings. May we be liberated from the death of ignorance through knowledge of our immortal essence, just as the cucumber is severed from the bondage of the vine.

Om peace, peace, peace.

You are my mother and you are my father also; You are my relative and you are my friend; You are knowledge and wealth to me; You are my everything, O Lord of Lords..
