Chanting

Opening Chant
vande gurūṇāṁ caraṇāravinde saṁdarśita svātma sukhāvabodhe
niḥśreyase jāṅ̇galikāyamāne saṁsāra hālāhala mohaśāntyai
ābāhu puruṣākāraṁ śaṅ̇khacakrāsi dhāriṇam
sahasra śirasaṁ śvetam praṇamāmi patañjalim

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

svastiprajābhyaḥ paripālayantāṁ nyāyena mārgeṇa mahīṁ mahīśāḥ
gobrāhmaṇebhyaḥ śubhamastu nityaṁ lokāḥ samastāḥ sukhinobhavantu

May all be well with mankind,
May the leaders of the Earth protect 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 be happy.


Opening Chant
Om
Asatoma sadgamaya
Tamasoma Jyotirgamaya
Mrtyorma amrtamgamaya
Om shanty shanty shanty

Om
Lead us from untruth to truth
From darkness to light
From death to immortality
Om peace peace peace

Closing Chant
Yogena Chittasya Padena Vacnam
Malam Shareerasyacha Vaidyakena
Yopa Karottam Pravaram Muneenam
Patanjalim Pranjalieanatosmi

I bow with folded hands to Patañjali
The greatest of Sages, who removed
the Impurity of mind by his work on yoga,
the impurity of speech by his work on grammar and the purity of body by his work on medicine.
