yogena cittasya padena vacam
(yo-gay-nuh chih-tah-syuh pah-day-nuh vah-chahm)
malam sarirasya ca vaidyakena
(mah-lahm shah-ree-rah-syuh chuh vy-dyuh-kay-nuh)
yopakarottam pravaram muninam
(yo-pah kar-oh-tahm prah-vah-rahm moo-nee-nahm)
(pah-than-jah-lim prahn-jah-leer ah-nah-to-smee)
sankha cakrasi dharinam
(shahn-kah chah-krah-see dar-ee-nahm)
sahasra sirasam svetam
(sah-hah-srah sheer-ah-sahm shvay-tahm)
Let us bow before the noblest of sages Patanjali, Who gave Yoga for serenity and sanctity of mind, Grammar for clarity and purity of speech, and Medicine for perfection of health. Let us prostrate before Patanjali, An incarnation of Adisesa, Whose upper body has a human form Whose arms hold a conch and disc, and Who is crowned by a thousand headed cobra.
