One more correction -- it doesn't relate to Eliot or TWL, though
 
Several websites ascribed the lines "Sarve Bhavantu Sukhinah, / Sarve Santu Niraamayah, / Sarve Bhadraani Pashyantu, / Maa Kaschid Dukha Mapnuyat. Om Shanthi Shanthi Shanthi." to Brihadaaranyaka Upanishad 1.4.14

I perused the onlune texts of this Upanishad but could not find these lines there. So I'm not sure about the source of these lines.

I'm extremely sorry, Rick. I listened to the video again. .
I wonder I missed out on the "Om" in the incantation.
It's very much there.

Curious to learn the source of this incantation (without Om?), I explored google to look for its source:
 
Here it is:
 
Sarve Bhavantu Sukhinah,
Sarve Santu Niraamayah,
Sarve Bhadraani Pashyantu,
Maa Kaschid Dukha Mapnuyat.
Om Shanthi Shanthi Shanthi.

May all be happy;
May all be without disease;
May all look for well-being of others;
May none have misery of any sort.
Om Peace Peace Peace.

— Brihadaaranyaka Upanishad 1.4.14
 
This is the Upanishad from which TWL quotes "Datta. Dayadhvam. Damayata."
 
It's worthy of note that the invocation of Shantih here is preceded by the incantation of Om.

Thank you, Rickard, for sharing the experience of listening to these "Shantih" incantations.
 
//Of these, I was intrigued by this one at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BwxnFd1oGc
It is remarkable that when it reaches 5.45 minutes, it chants "Shantih Shantih Shantih"
without "Om".  Interesting.  It's rare, though. //
