|• Udaka Shanti contains information on the worship of Lord Varuna in Kumbha and the chanting of Shanti Mantras with Tirtha.
• The Shanti Mantras, or "Peace" or Pancha Shanti mantras, are Hindu prayers for peace (shanti) found in the Upanishads. Generally, they are recited at the beginning and end of religious rituals and discourses. They are supposed to calm the mind and environment of the reciter. Reciting them is also believed to be removing any obstacles for the task being started. Shanti Mantras always end with the sacred syllable Om (auṃ) and three utterances of the word "shanti" which means "peace". The reason for uttering three times is for calming and removing obstacles in the three realms.
