Translation
Aum I bow to the lotus feet of the guru Who awakens insight into the happiness of pure Being Who is the refuge, the jungle physician Who eliminates the delusion caused by The poisonous herb of samsara (conditioned existence) I prostrate before the sage Patanjali Who has thousands of radiant, white heads (in his form as the divine serpent Ananta) And who has, as far as his arms, assumed the form of a man Holding a conch shell (divine sound), a wheel (discus of light, representing infinite time) and a sword (discrimination). Aum
