योगेन चित्तस्य पादेन वाचां मलं शरीरस्य च वैद्यकेन ।
योऽपाकरोत्तं प्रवरं मुनीनां पतंजलिं प्रांजलिरानतोऽस्मि ।।
आबाहुपुरुषाकारं शंखचक्रासिधारिणं ।
सहस्रशीरसं श्वेतं प्रणमामि पतंजलिम् ।।

yogena cittasya padena vācāṁ
malaṁ śarīrasya ca vaidyakena
yopākarottaṁ pravaraṁ munīnāṁ
patañjaliṁ prāñjalirānato’smi
ābāhu puraṣākāraṁ
śaṅkha cakrāsi dhāriṇam
sahasra śirasaṁ śvetaṁ
praṇamāmi patañjalim

I bow with folded hands to Patanjali, best of sages,
who removed the impurities of the mind through yoga;
[the impurities]  of the speech  through grammar;
[ the impurities] of the body through medicine.
Him whose upper body has a human form,
who holds a conch and  cakra (disc weapon),
who is white and has a thousand heads,
that Patanjali I  worship.
