In Hinduism the Sanskrit lexical item svāhā (romanized Sanskrit transcription; Devanagari: स्वाहा; Chinese: 薩婆訶, sà pó hē, Japanese: sowaka; Tibetan: སྭཱ་ཧཱ་ sw’a h’a; Korean: 사바하, sabaha) is a denouement used at the end of a mantra, which is invoked during yajna fire sacrifices and worship

Svāhā is chanted to offer oblation to the gods

As a feminine noun, svāhā in the Rigveda may also mean oblation (to Agni or Indra)

Svaha also is considered to mean an auspicious ending

In the Tibetan language, “svaha” is translated as “so be it” and is often pronounced as “soha”
