MANTRA

OPENING SONG

Om

Praise and adoration to the lotus feet of the gurus

for they reveal the happiness of the true Self

they are the refuge in the dark impenetrable forest of the mind

transforming poison and endless illusion into eternal peace

a tribute to the great sage Patañjali

who took the form of a luminous man

wielding a conch shell, a disc and a sword crowned by

a brilliant white cobra with a thousand heads

Om

CLOSING SONG

Om

May humanity be well

May world leaders protect with justice

May those who know that the Earth is a sacred place be blessed

May all beings be happy and prosperous.

Om 

peace peace peace

Vande Gurunam charanaravinde

Sandarshita svatma sukava bodhe

Nishreyase jangalikayamane

Samara halahala mohashantyai

Abahu purushakaram

Shankhachakrasi dharinam

Sahasra shirasam Shvetam

Pranamami Patanjalim

Aum

Aum

Swasti praja bhyah pari pala yantam

Nya yena margena mahi mahishaha

Go brahmanebhyaha shubamastu nityam

Lakaa samastha sukhino bhavantu

Aum

Shantih Shantih Shantih
