Åpnings mantra

vande gurunam caranaravinde sandarasita svatma sukhava bodhe

nih-sreyase jangali-kayamane samsara halahala mohasamtyai

abahu purusakaram samkhacakrasi dharinam

sahasra sirasam svetam pranamami patanjalim

aum


I bow to the lotus feet of the gurus

Who awaken happiness into the insight of pure being

Who, like the jungle physician,

Remove the poison of conditioned existence.


Up to the shoulders in the form of man,

Holding a sword, a diskus and conch,

With a thousand white snake heads,

To Patanjali I offer my humble respects.

Avslutnings mantra

svasti-praja-bhyah pari-pala-yamtam

nyayena margena mahim mahisah

go brahmanebhyah subhan-astu nityam

lokah samastah sukhino-bhavamtu

aum santih santih santih


May your rules be virtous

And protect the welfare of all

May there be joy for those who know the nature of realitu

May all beings be happy

om peace peace peace
