62 of the Best Inner Peace Quotes

Dalai Lama, Gandhi, and the Buddist philosophy are all examples of advocates of the term inner peace. Inner peace, also known as peace of mind, is related very closely to true happiness. Shanti and Chaina are some of the Sanskrit words that refer to someone’s mental calmness, or inner peace.

Inner peace means even though you have the presence of stressors in your life or environment, you intentionally have a spiritual calmness or psychological calmness.

Being grateful, interactions with nature, self realization, meditation, and purifying your mind and soul with using mantras such as ‘om’ while you meditate can all be helpful to leading to an inner peace.
