The "sarveshaam mantra" is one of the peace or shanti mantras which may be used to invoke harmony and tranquility in the environment in which puja or prayers are performed. This shanti mantra may be repeated three or eleven times, as time permits. The mantra may perhaps be used as a closing prayer for the puja, to bless all those in attendance.
