Ashtanga Opening Mantra

                                 Traditional style of Ashtanga yoga classes always begins with the fixed mantra or prayer which is known as the Ashtanga opening mantra:

                                                                                              Vande Gurūṇāṁ Caraṇāravinde Saṁdarśita Svātma Sukhāvabodhe
                                                                                                   Niḥśreyase Jāṅ̇Galikāyamāne Saṁsāra Hālāhala Mohaśāntyai
                                                                                                               Ābāhu Puruṣākāraṁ Śaṅ̇Khacakrāsi Dhāriṇam
                                                                                                               Sahasra Śirasaṁ Śvetam Praṇamāmi Patañjalim

                                                                                                            This prayer can be translated into English as:

                                                                                                                           I bow to the lotus feet of the gurus,
                                                                                                            The awakening happiness of one's own self revealed,
                                                                                                                    Beyond better, acting like the jungle physician,
                                                                                                                     Pacifying delusion, the poison of Samsara.

                                                                                                                    Taking the form of a man to the shoulders,
                                                                                                                        Holding a conch, a discus, and a sword,
                                                                                                                                One thousand heads white,
                                                                                                                                     To Patanjali, I salute.

                                                                Traditional style of Ashtanga yoga classes are also finished with the special mantra known as closing mantra

                                                                                                 Svastiprajābhyaḥ Paripālayantāṁ Nyāyena Mārgeṇa Mahīṁ Mahīśāḥ
                                                                                            Gobrāhmaṇebhyaḥ Śubhamastu Nityaṁ Lokāḥ Samastāḥ Sukhinobhavantu

                                                                                                                        This prayer is translated into English below:

                                                                                                                                     May all be well with mankind,
                                                                                                             May the leaders of the Earth protect in every way by keeping to the right path.
                                                                                                                        May there be goodness for those who know the Earth to be sacred.
                                                                                                                                     May all the worlds be happy.
