Brief explanation
At the beginning of a class, the teacher and students general y recite this peace invocation together. Both seek the Lord’s blessings for study that is free of obstacles, such as poor memory, or the inability to concentrate or poor health. They also seek blessings for a conducive relationship, without which communication of any subject matter is difficult. Therefore this prayer is important for both the teacher and the student.
