opening chant

I bow to the lotus feet of the Gurus 

The awakening happiness of one's own Self revealed, 

Beyond better, acting like the jungle Physician,

Pacifying delusion, the poison of Samsara.

Taking the form of a man to the shoulders,

Holding a conch, a discus and a sword,

One thousand white heads,

To Patanjali I salute.

Closing chant

May all be well with mankind.

May the leaders of the earth protect in every way by keeping to the right path.

May there be goodness for those who know the earth to be sacred.

May all the worlds be happy.
