सर्वे भवन्तु सुखिनः

सर्वे भवन्तु सुखिनः। सर्वे सन्तु निरामयाः।
सर्वे भद्राणि पश्यन्तु। मा कश्चित् दुःखभाग्भवेत्॥
sarve bhavantu sukhinaḥ| sarve santu nirāmayāḥ|
sarve bhadrāṇi paśyantu| mā kaścit duḥkhabhāgbhavet||

“May all be happy. May all be free from disabilities.
May all see auspicious things. May none suffer sorrows. “

"From delusion lead me to truth
From darkness lead me to light
From death lead me to immortality."

वि॒द्यां चावि॑द्यां च॒ यस्तद्वेदो॒भय॑ग्‍ं स॒ह।
अवि॑द्यया मृ॒त्युं ती॒र्त्वा वि॒द्यया॒ऽमृत॑मश्नुते॥

avi̍dyayā mṛ̱tyuṁ tī̱rtvā vi̱dyayā̱'mṛta̍maśnute
— īśāvasyopaniśat 11

"He who knows both knowledgde and action,
with action overcomes death and with
knowledge reaches immortality."

यस्मिन्द्यौः पृथिवी चान्तरिक्षमोतं मनः सह प्राणैश्च सर्वैः।
तमेवैकं जानथ आत्मानमन्या वाचो विमुञ्चथामृतस्यैष सेतुः॥
— मुण्डकोपनिषत् २-२-५
yasmindyauḥ pṛthivī cāntarikṣamotaṁ manaḥ saha prāṇaiśca sarvaiḥ
tamevaikaṁ jānatha ātmānamanyā vāco vimuñcathāmṛtasyaiṣa setuḥ
— muṇḍakopaniṣat 2-2-5

"In him are woven the sky and the earth and all the regions of air, and in him rest the mind and all the powers of life.
Know him as the ONE and leave aside all otherwords. He is the bridge of immortality."

इ॒न्द्रिये॒भ्यः प॑रं म॒नो॒ म॒नस॑ सत्त्व॒मुत्तमम्।
सत्त्वाद॒धि म॑हाना॒त्मा॒ म॒हतो॑ऽव्यक्त॒मुत्त॑मम्॥
— कठोपनिषत् ६-७

sattvāda̱dhi ma̍hānā̱tmā̱ ma̱hato̍'vyakta̱mutta̍mam
— kaṭhopaniṣat 6-7

"Beyond the senses is the mind, and beyond the mind is reason, it's essence.
Beyond reason is the Spirit in man, and beyond this, is the Spirit of the Universe, the evolver of all."

यदा॑ प॒ञ्चाव॑तिष्ठन्ते ज्ञाना॑नि॒ मन॑सा सह।
बुद्धि॑श्च न॒ विचे॑ष्टते त॒माहुः॑ पर॒मां ग॑तिम्॥
— कठोपनिषत् ६-१०
yadā̍ pa̱ñcāva̍tiṣṭhante jñānā̍ni̱ mana̍sā saha
buddhi̍śca na̱ vice̍ṣṭate tā̱mahuḥ̍ para̱māṁ ga̍tim
— kaṭhopaniṣat 6-10

"When the five senses and the mind are still,
and reason itself rest in silence, then begins the Path supreme."

भिद्यते हृदयग्रन्थिश्छिद्यन्ते सर्वसंशयाः।
क्षीयन्ते चास्य कर्माणि तस्मिन्दृष्टे परावरे॥
— मुण्डकोपनिषत् २-२-८
bhidyate hṛdayagranthiśchidyante sarvasaṁśayāḥ
kṣīyante cāsya karmāṇi tasmindṛṣṭe parāvare
— muṇḍakopaniṣat 2-2-8

"And when he is seen in his immanence and transcendence, then the ties that have bound the heart are unloosened, the doubt of the mind vanish, and the law of Karma works no more."

This collection is from Neodämmerung (Matrix Revolutions) where Don Davis used a Sanskrit choir (fight between Smith and Neo).

पूर्ण॒स्य पूर्ण॒मादा॒य पूर्ण॒मेवावशि॒ष्यते

ॐ पूर्ण॒मद॒ पूर्ण॒मिदं पूर्णा॒त्पूर्ण॒मुद॒च्यते।
पूर्ण॒स्य पूर्ण॒मादा॒य पूर्ण॒मेवावशि॒ष्यते॥
om pūrṇa̱mada̱ḥ pūrṇa̱midaṁ pūrṇā̱tpūrṇa̱muda̱cyate|
pūrṇa̱sya pūrṇa̱mādā̱ya pūrṇa̱mevāvaśi̱ṣyate||

"What is whole, this is whole; what has come out of the whole is also whole.
When the whole is taken out of the whole, the whole still remains whole."

In other words, even a fraction of the Supreme Being is whole and complete by itself as nicely translated by Shri. Rajaji in his translation of the Valmiki Ramayana. This is yet another शान्ति मन्त्रः।

ते॒ज॒स्विना॒वधी॑तमस्तु॒

ॐ स॒ह ना॑ववतु।
स॒ह नौ॑ भुनक्तु।
स॒ह वीर्यं॑ करवावहै।
ते॒ज॒स्विना॒वधी॑तमस्तु॒ मा वि॑द्विषा॒वहै॥
om sa̱ha nā̍vavatu|
sa̱ha nau̍ bhunaktu|
sa̱ha vīryaṁ̍ karavāvahai|
te̱ja̱svinā̱vadhī̍tamastu̱ mā vi̍dviṣā̱vahai̎||

"Together may we be protected Together may we be nourished Together may we work with great energy May our journey together be brilliant and effective May there be no bad feelings between us" This is a typical शान्ति मन्त्रः chanted before any learning is commenced. In fact, ते॒ज॒स्विना॒वधी॑तमस्तु॒ is the slogan for IIM Ahmedabad.
