    Om, May there be Peace in Heaven,
    May there be Peace in the Sky,
    May there be Peace in the Earth,
    May there be Peace in the Water,
    May there be Peace in the Plants,
    May there be Peace in the Trees,
    May there be Peace in the Gods in the various Worlds,
    May there be Peace in Brahman,
    May there be Peace in All,
    May there be Peace Indeed within Peace,
    Giving Me the Peace which Grows within Me,
    Om, Peace, Peace, Peace.

    (Shanti Mantra of Upanishad)

    Preserve Nature,
    And Nature will preserve Us,
    Simplify Life,
    And make the Nature thrive,
    Plant Trees,
    And make our planet Green.
