ASHTANGA MANTRA

 

Om

Vande Gurunam charanaravinde

Sandarshita svatmasukavabodhe

Nishreyase jangalikayamane

Samsara halahala mohashantyai

 

Abahu Purushakaram

Shankhacakrsi dharinam

Sahasra sirasam svetam

Pranamami patanjalim

Om

 

 

Translation:

Aum
I bow down in humility for the highest Gurus lotus feet
who through his knowledge teaches the awakening of the greatest happiness,
which removes the misrepresentation from the poisoned conditional existence.

To Patanjali an incarnation of Adi Sesha
– white to the color and with a thousand glowing heads
– human to the form below the shoulders,
holding sword of separation, a wheel of fire represented the infinite time
and a seal representing the divine sound.
To him I fall on my knees.
Aum
