    Supreme Lord, let there be peace in the sky and in the atmosphere. Let there be peace in the plant world and in the forests. Let the cosmic powers be peaceful. Let the Brahman, the true essence and source of life, be peaceful. Let there be undiluted and fulfilling peace everywhere.

    The Atharva Veda

    May there be peace in the higher regions; may there be peace in the firmament;
    may there be peace on earth.
    May the waters flow peacefully; may the herbs and plants grow peacefully;
    may all the divine powers bring unto us peace.
    The supreme Lord is peace.
    May we all be in peace, peace, and only peace; and may that peace come unto each of us.
    Shanti (peace) Shanti---Shanti!

    The Vedas

    The whole mantram AUM
    Indivisible, interdependent,
    Goes on reverberating in the mind.
    Established in this cosmic vibration,
    The sage goes beyond fear, decay, and death
    To enter into infinite peace.

    – Prashna Upanishad

    O Almighty!
    You are the infinite; the universe is also infinite!
    From infinite the infinite has come out!
    Having taken infinite out of the infinite, the infinite remains!
    O Almighty! May there be Peace! Peace! Everywhere!

    – Ishawashya Upanishad

    "Every living creature is the son of the supreme Lord, and He does not tolerate even ants being killed"

    – Swāmī Prabhupada

    "Indulgence in animal killing for the taste of the tongue is the grossest kind of ignorance"

    – Swāmī Prabhupada

    "When one’s food is pure, one’s being becomes pure"

    – Chāndogya Upaniṣad

    "A certain degree of physical harmony and comfort is necessary, but above a certain level it becomes a hindrance instead of a help. Therefore the ideal of creating an unlimited number of wants and satisfying them seems to be a delusion and a snare."

    – Mahatma Gandhi

    "There is enough for everyone's need, but not for their greed."

    – Mahatma Gandhi

    “The great secret of true success, of true happiness, is this: the man or woman who asks for no return, the perfectly unselfish person, is the most successful.”

    ― Swami Vivekananda

    “If I were asked to define the Hindu creed, I should simply say: Search after truth through non-violent means. A man may not believe in God and still call himself a Hindu. Hinduism is a relentless pursuit after truth... Hinduism is the religion of truth. Truth is God. Denial of God we have known. Denial of truth we have not known.”

    ― Mahatma Gandhi

    “The Bhagavad-Gita is the most systematic statement of spiritual evolution of endowing value to mankind. It is one of the most clear and comprehensive summaries of perennial philosophy ever revealed; hence its enduring value is subject not only to India but to all of humanity.”

    ― Aldous Huxley

    “Those who are free of resentful thoughts surely find peace.”
    ― Buddha

    “Where there is FAITH, there is LOVE; Where there is LOVE; there is PEACE; Where there is PEACE; there is GOD; Where there is GOD; there is BLISS.”

    ― Sri Sathya Sai Baba

    He who hates no single being, is friendly and compassionate, free from self-regard and vanity, the same in good and evil, patient; Contented, ever devout, subdued in soul, firm in purpose, fixed on Me in heart and mind, and who worships Me, is dear to Me.
    Bhagavad Gita
