Let us bow before the noblest of sages Patañjali, Who gave Yoga for serenity and sanctity of mind, Grammar for clarity and purity of speech, and Medicine for perfection of health.
Let us prostrate before Patañjali,
An incarnation of Adiśeṣa,
Whose upper body has a human form
Whose arms hold a conch and disc, and
Who is crowned by a thousand headed cobra.
*Many thanks to Indira and Shanta Bulkin for the authentic Devanāgarī script and the superb audio.
