The Patanjali Invocation

(Sage Patanjali was the first person to present the ancient tradition of Yoga in a systematic way. Thus he is considered the founder of Yoga. Patanjali lived around 200 BC)

Om Yogena cittasya padena vacam

Malam sarirasyaca vaidyakena

Yopakarottam prvaram muninam

Patanjalim pranjaliranato’smi

To the noblest of sages, Patanjali, who gave us yoga for serenity of mind,

grammar for purity of speech and medicine for the perfection of the body, I salute.

Abahu purusakaram

Sankha cakrasi dharinam

Sahasra sirasam svetam

Pranamami Patanjalim

I salute before Patanjali whose upper body has a human form,

whose arms hold a conch, and disc and a sword,

who is crowned by a thousand headed cobra.

Oh incar­nation of Adisesa my humble saluta­tions to thee.


Mangala Gita

* Saba mangala ho, saba mangala ho –

Saba mangala mangala mangala ho -2

(sab: all;  mangala: pure, auspicious, good)

Naba mangala ho, jala mangala ho –2

Prithivi ka kana kana mangala ho -2

(naba: sky;  jala: water

prithivi: earth;  kana: smallest particle)

(repeat *)

Cittha mangala ho, mati mangala ho -2

Vyakhti ka kshana kshana mangala ho -2

(cittha:citta; mati: intellect, brain

vyakhti: person;  kshana: every moment)

(repeat *)

Saba mangala ho, saba mangala hooo…..
