Za večino najtežji del vadbe. Mantro pojemo skupaj na začetku Ashtanga Vinyasa joge, in da nam bo šlo bolje, se jo sedaj lahko naučite doma :)
Spodaj pa še video z Manju Pattabhi Joisom (sinom Sri K. Pattabhi Joisa).

vande gurunam charanaravinde
sandarshita svatma sukhava bodhe
nishreyase jangalikayamane
samsara halahala mohasantyai
abahu purushakaram
sankhachakrasi dharinam
sahasra shirsam svetam
pranamami patanjalim

Še angleški prevod:
I bow to the lotus feet of the gurus,
The awakening happiness of ones 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.
