“Peace be to earth and to airy space! Peace be to heaven, peace to the waters, peace to the plant and peace to the trees!... With this peace the dreadful I now appease, with this peace the cruel I now appease, with this peace all evil I now appease, so that peace may prevail, happiness prevail! ” ~Atharva Veda XIX
