vande gurunām caranāravinde
sandarashita svātmasukhāva bodhe
nih shreyase jāngalikayamāne
samsāra hālāhala mohashāntyai
sahasra shirasam shvetam
I bow to the lotus feet of Supreme Guru who teaches the good knowledge,
conferring the insights to embodying the true Self, a pure mind and heart.
Leading me to Self-awakening is the Jungle doctor,
who is remover of delusion and all other poisons of the mind.
I prostrate to Patañjali, an incarnation of Ādisheṣa,
who supports the world on his thousand white heads,
holding a conch shell, a discus, and the sword of discrimination
