Vertaling van the Patanjali invocation

Aum ...., Aum ...., Aum ....

Yogena cittasya Padena vacam
Malam sarirasya ca vaidyakena
Yopakarottam pravaram muninam
Patanjalim pranjaliranato 'smi

He who gave us yoga for mental clarity,
and (Sanskrit) grammar for clarity and purity of speech,
and medicine (Ayurveda) for the perfection of the body,
we greet, the noblest of sages Patanjali from our hearts.

Abahu purusakaram
Sankha cakrasi dharinam
Sahasra sirasam svetam
Pranamami Patanjalim

He who is an incarnation of Adisesa, whose upper body has a human form
whose arms hold a seashell, an (energy) disk and a sword,
which is crowned by a thousand-headed cobra,
We humbly salute Patanjali.

Hari aum

In het Sanskriet schrift lees je van achter naar voor, letterlijke vertaling;

Patanjalim pranaliranato ‘smi:                 line 4: I bow with folded palms to Patanjali,
Yopakarottam pravaram muninam:       line 3: the noblest of the sages (guru) who eliminated,
Malam sarirasya ca vaidyakena:              line 2: dirt of body with the medicine, impurity

De Patanjali aanroeping:

Verdere uitleg over Aum;

The invocation starts reciting three times Aum.
Aum is the first primal tone (adi nada), formed during the creation. It
represents the totality of sound and creation. It is the source of
all energies and is expressed for a good start.
Aum is also written as a Om occasionally, but the spelling Aum approaches a
better pronunciation. The word Aum is more universal than we suspect. In
Old Norse it means 'sound', and even now it is used in Norwegian dialect meaning 'focused sound. The Jewish and
Christian traditions, know the word “Amen”, and in Egyptian one knows
Amon, the Muslims use Amin.

The Patanjali invocation is recited before most yoga classes


"Discipline and purity must come from within " BKS Iyengar "

I bow to Guru, who is the embodiment of the bliss of Brahman, the giver of the greatest beatitude. He is the absolute. He is the personification of highest knowledge. He is beyond the dualities. He is as vast as sky. He aims to become one with Lord. He is only one and eternal. He is pure and stable. He witnesses everything that is happening. He is unattached and above that. He is free from three qualities, sattva, rajas and tamas. I bow down to that true and real Guru.
