Vandē gurūṇāṃ caraṇāravindē
Praṇamāmi patañjalim ||
I bow to the lotus feet of the Supreme Gurus
who awaken insight into the happiness of pure Being,
who are the refuge, and the jungle physician,
who eliminate delusion caused by the poison of conditioned existence.
Taking the form of a man to his shoulders,
holding a conch shell (divine sound), a wheel (discus of light or infinite time) and a sword (discrimination)
with a thousand radiant white heads,
I bow to the sage Patanjali.
Svasthi Praja Bhyaha Pari Pala Yantam
Nya Yena Margena Mahim Mahishaha
Go Brahmanebhyaha Shubamastu Nityam
Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu
Om Shanti Shanti Shantihi
May all be well with makind.
May the leaders of the earth protect it in every way
by keeping to the right path.
May there be goodness for those who know
the earth to be sacred.
May all the worlds and all beings be happy.
Om Peace Peace Peace
