Ashtanga Yoga Opening Mantra / Mysore Style 

Opening Mantra 

Om 

Vande Gurunam charanaravinde

Sandarshita svatmasukavabodhe

Nishreyase jangalikayamane

Samsara halahala mohashantayi


Abahu Purushakaram

Shankhacakrsi dharinam

Sahasra sirasam svetam

Pranamami patanjalim

Om 


Om 

I pray to the lotus feet of the supreme guru

Who teaches knowledge, awakening the great happiness of the Self revealed

Who acts like the jungle physician

Able to remove the delusion from the poison of conditioned existence

To Pantajali, an incarnation of Adisesa, white in colour with a thousand radiant heads ( in his form as the divine serpent, Ananta), human in form below the shoulders, holding the sword of discrimination, a wheel of fire representing infinite time, and the conch representing divine sound to him,

I prostrate

Om
