Invocation

opening prayer

OM

Vande gurunam charanaara vinde

Sandaarchita swaatma sukhaava bhode

Níshreyase jaangalikaa yamane

Samsaara haala haala móha shantye

Aabahu purushakaaram shankha chakraasi dharinam

Sahsra shirasam shvetam

Praanamami patanjalim om shantih shantih shantih

 

I worship the guru´s lotusfeet,awakening the happiness Self-revealed.beyond comparison,acting

like the jungle physicion to pacify delusion from the poison of existence. to Patanjali, an

incarnation of Adisesa, white in colour with 1000 radiant heads (in his form of the divine

serpant Ananta), human in form, below the shoulders holding the sword (discrimination),the

wheel of fire (discus of light, representing infinite time) and a conch (divine sound) – to Him I

prostrate.

closing prayer

OM

Swasti prajabyaha paripaala yantam

Jnaayena maargena mahiim mahimshahaa

Go braahmanebhyahaa shubhamastu nítyam

Lokhaa samastaa sukhino bhavantu

Om shantih shantih shantihi

 

May all be well with mankind.may the leaders of the earth protect in every way by keeping to

the riht path.may there be goodness for those who know the earth to be sacred.may all the

worlds be happy.may the rains fall in time,and may the earth yield its produce in

abundance.may this country be free of disturbanca and may the righteous be free from fear.
