One mantra for praising all deities of three Lokas


There technically is "no only one mantra" if you're planning to please all the deities in the Triloka. But there are alternatives. If you wish to get the mantra which all the gods adhere to and pay allegiance, but non-Vedantic - then try the Gayatri Mantra. It is present in many sources, however I am taking it from the Surya Upanishad.

Surya Upanishad Verse 3

Aum bhūr-bhuva̱ḥ-suva̍ḥ |
tat sa̍vi̱tur vare̎ṇya̱m bhargo de'vasya dh'īmahi |
dhiyo̱ yo na̍ḥ praco̱dayā̎t ||

Om, Earth, middle region and sky; we meditate on the adorable splendor of Savitar (Sun) who may inspire our thoughts.

Vishnu and Shiva mantras are generally favoured if you want direct blessings from every god out there.

Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya.

Om Namo Bhagavate Rudraya.

These mantras are invoked at the beginning of many Puranas and stotras.

If you want an all encompassing Gayatri for deities combined in a single flow you can refer to Mahanarayana Upanishad and keep on chanting all the Gayatris.
