Traditional Ashtanga Opening Mantra

lyrics

Om
Vande Gurunām charanāravinde
Sandarshita swātmasukāvabodhe
Nishreyase jāngalikāyamāne
Samsāra hālāhala mohashāntyai
Abāhu Purushākāram
Shankhacakŗsi dhārinam
Sahasra sirasam svetam
Pranamāmi patanjalim
Om

Om
I bow to the Lotus feet of the Supreme Gurus
who teach the good knowledge,
showing the way to knowing the Self,
awakening great happiness; who is the
doctor of the jungle, able to remove the
poison of the ignorance of conditioned
existence.

To Patanjali, an incarnation of Adisesa,
white in color with 1000 radiant heads
(in his form as the divine serpent,
Ananta), human in form below the
shoulders holding a sword (discrimination),
a wheel of fire (discus of light, representing infinite time),
and a conch (Divine sound)

to him,
I prostrate.
