Purnam Adah

“Purnam Adah,” a peace mantra in Sanskrit performed by Sheela Bringi.

Lyrics in Sanskrit:
oṁ pūrṇam adaḥ pūrṇam idam
pūrṇāt pūrṇam udacyate
pūrṇasya pūrṇam ādāya
pūrṇam evāvaṣiśyate

oṁ śantiḥ śantiḥ śantiḥ

English translation:
That [Universal Reality] is fullness, this is fullness
from fullness, fullness flows
when a part of fullness is taken away
what remains is [still] fullness
