yogena cittasya padena vacam

To purify the mind (citta), purify the consciousness, Patanjali gave the science of yoga (yogena) to us. To purify our use of words (pada) and speech (vacca), he gave a commentary on grammar to us, so that our use of words and way of speaking is clarified, distinct and pure.


malam sarirasya ca vaidyakena

To remove the impurities (malam) of the body (sarira), he gave us the science of medicine (vaidyakena).


yopakarottam pravaram muninam

Let me go near the one who has given these things to us.


patanjalim pranjalir anato’smi

Let me bow down my head with my folded hands to Lord Patanjali Then after knowing the work of this Lord, the second stanza says what Lord Patanjali looks like. To do any meditation first the form has to be in front of the eyes.


abahu purusakaram

From the hand up to the head he has the shape (karam) of a human (purusa).


sankha carkrasi dharinam

In his hand he is holding the conch (sankha) and disc (cakra)


sahasra sirasam svetam

On top of his head (sirasam) he has got a thousand (sahasra) hoods of the cobra, because he is the incarnation of Adishesha, the greatest cobra. Svetam means white.


pranamami patanjalim

I bow down to Patanjali



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 the body, I salute. I salute before Patanjali whose upper body has a human form, whose arms hold a conch, and disc and a sword, who is crowned by a thousand headed cobra. Oh incarnation of Adisesa my humble salutations to thee.

    Difficulties that I will help you to get over:

    Physical tensions and blocks reside in memory of muscles. Because we all get strong emotional experiences in the past or present, to every situation the body responds with some physical tensions. You should be aware of the signs that appear in your body. Releasing deep tensions and blocks is a prerequisite for strengthening your immune system and achieving a state of lightness and emotional pleasure.
