I pray to the Lotus feet of the Supreme Guru who teaches the good knowledge, showing the way to knowing the self, awakening great happiness; who is the doctor of the jungle, able to remove the poison of the ignorance of conditioned existence.

To Patanjali, an incarnation of Adisesa, white in color with 1000 radiant heads (in his form as the divine serpent, Ananta), human in form below the shouldersholdingasword (discrimination), a wheel of fire (discus of light, representing infinite time), and a conch (Divine sound) to him,I prostrate.
