OPENING CHANT

Om

Vande Guruunaam Charanaaravinde
Sandarshita Svaatma Sukhaavabodhe
Nihshreyase Jaangalikaayamaane
Samsaara Haalaahala Mohashaantyai

Aabaahu Purushaakaaram
Shankhacakraasi Dhaarinam
Sahasra Shirasam Shvetam
Pranamaami Patanjalim

Om
 

I bow to the lotus feet of the Gurus,

The awakening happiness of one’s own Self revealed, Beyond better, acting like the jungle physician, Pacifying delusion, the poison of Samsara.

Taking the form of a man to the shoulders, 
Holding a conch, a discus, and a sword, 
One thousand heads, white,
To Patanjali, I salute.

 

CLOSING CHANT

Om

Svasthi Prajaa Bhyaha Pari Paala Yantaam
Nyaa Yena Maargena Mahiim Mahiishaaha
Go Braahmanebhyaha Shubamastu Nityam
Lokaah Samastaah Sukhino Bhavantu

Om Shanti Shanti Shantihi


May the rulers of the earth keep to the path of virtue
For protecting the welfare of all generations.
May the religious, and all peoples be forever blessed,
May all beings everywhere be happy and free

Om peace, peace, peace
