Invocation to Patanjali

Yogena cittasya padena vacam malam sarirasya ca vaidyakena yopakarottam  pravaram muninam patanjalim  pranajaliranato’smi abahu purusakaram  sankha cakrasi dharinam sahasra sirasam  svetam pranamami patanjalim.

Let us bow before the noblest of sages Patanjali, 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 Patanjali, an incarnation of Adisesa, whose upper body has a human form, whose arms hold a conch and a disc, and who is crowned by a thousand-headed cobra.
