vande gurūṇāṁ caraṇāravinde
sandarśita svātma sukhāva bodhe |
saṁsāra hālāhala mohaśāṁtyai ||
śaṁkhacakrāsi dhāriṇam |
sahasra śirasaṁ śvetaṁ
praṇamāmi patañjalim ||
I bow to the Lotus feet of the plurality of Guru, wich awaken Insight into the happiness of pure Being, wich are the complete absorption into joy, the jungle physican, eliminating the delusion caused by the poison of Samsara (conditioned exisence).
I prostrate before the sage Patanjali who has thousand of radiant, white heads (as the divine serpent, Ananta) and who has, as far as his arms, assumed a human form, holding a conch shell (divine sound) a wheel (a discus of light ortime) and a sword (discrimination).
To Him I prostrate
nyāyena mārgeṇa mahīṁ mahīśāḥ |
go-brāhmaṇebhyaḥ śubham-astu nityaṁ
lokāḥ samastāḥ sukhino-bhavaṁtu ||
auṁ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ
May all ofhumankind be happy and well.
May the great noble lords proctet the earth in every way by the path of just virtue.
May there be perpetual joy for those who know the real nature of things.
May all the creatures be happy.
Peace, Peace, Peace
