I want to give credit to my good friend Sho for the beautiful Savasana song “Sarvesham” by Jack Harrison (an Irish devotional singer and yoga teacher).
The lyrics or Mantra is part of Hindu (Vedic) Universal Peace Mantra.
Here is the Sanskrit used in the song, followed by translations:
Om sarveshaam swastir bhavatu
Sarveshaam shantir bhavatu
Sarveshaam poornam bhavatu
Sarveshaam mangalam bhavatu*
Sarve bhavantu sukhinah
Sarve santu niraamayaah
Sarve bhadraani pashyantu
Maakaschit duhkha bhaag bhavet*
Auspiciousness (swasti) be unto all;
Peace (shanti) be unto all;
Fullness (poornam) be unto all;
Prosperity (mangalam) be unto all.*
May all be happy! (sukhinah)
May all be free from disabilities! (niraamayaah)
May all look (pashyantu)to the good of others!
May none suffer from sorrow! (duhkha)*
Om Lokah Samastah Sukhino bhavantu’**
Om Shanthi Shanthi Shanthi
May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all.
Peace, Peace Peace
