PRANAMAMI PATANJALIM

Translation:

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 body, I salute.

First I honor Patanjali whose upper part has a human form,

whose arms hold a conch and a disc and is crowned by a cobra

with a thousand heads. Oh incarnation of Adisesa,

my humble salutations to thee.
