Q.

When Hindus pray or worship, they say the following:

Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti - May there be peace.
Sarve jana Sukhino Bhavantu - May everyone be happy
Loka samstha sukhino Bhavantu - may everyone be happy
Samstha sanmangalani santhu - May good things happen.

How many people understand the meaning of these prayers and how many people actually mean it ?

The prayer is aimed at unconditional submission of the human being before the almighty. But the human being prays for his/her welbeing only . The mismatch between words and action happens in all walks of life not only in chanting only the prayers

This question can be raised for any prayer. Moreover, 'prayer' is an attitude of submission. It may be verbal or in any other way. Further, This Hindu way is an example of the well-wishing for the whole creation, not only to ourself.

Praying in their own language in a simple way is enough.
