Shanti Mantra

The "Sahanavavatu mantra" is one of the shaanti (peace) mantras which has its origins in the Taittiriya Upanisad. This mantra is often used as a "universal" prayer, to send the message of peace and prosperity. The mantra may also be used to invoke God's blessings for harmony amongst teacher,s and student,s.
AUM saha navavatu, saha nau bhunaktu Saha veeryam karvaavahai Tejasvi naa vadhita mastu maa vid vishaa va hai AUM shaantih, shaantih, shaantih.

How to do Asanas? According by Maharishi Patanjali

Maharishi Patanjali has explained  it very beautifully
'Prayatnasaithilyanantasamapattibhyam.' It means, while doing Asanas , effort should be minimum. As regards the mind it should not waver but should be applied to the infinite or on our breath, so as to reduce tension. This is the direction proposed by Patanjali.
