Ashtanga opening prayer

 

 

वन्दे गुरूणां चरणारविन्दे
सन्दर्शित स्वात्म सुखाव बोधे ।
vande gurūṇāṁ caraṇāravinde  

sandarśita svātma sukhāva bodhe |

 

 

निःश्रेयसे जङ्गलिकायमाने
संसार हालाहल मोहशांत्यै ॥
niḥ-śreyase jaṅgali-kāyamāne

saṁsāra hālāhala mohaśāṁtyai ||

 

 

आबाहु पुरुषाकारं
शंखचक्रासि धारिणम् ।
ābāhu puruṣākāraṁ  
śaṁkhacakrāsi dhāriṇam |

           

 

सहस्र शिरसं श्वेतं
प्रणमामि पतञ्जलिम् ॥
sahasra śirasaṁ śvetaṁ 

praṇamāmi patañjalim || 

 

I bow to the lotus feet of our great teachers,

who uncovers our true self and awakens

happiness

 

 

 

 

Like a Shaman in the Jungle he brings total

complete well-being. He can even heal the most awful poision of conditioning and illusion.

 

 

 

 

The upper body of human shape, carrying
a mussel horn (original tone), a discus (infinity)and a sword (power of differentiation)

 

 

 

having 1000 bright heads,

I bow to Patanjali.
