DHYANA SLOKAS (Auspicious Prayers before yoga practice)

Gajananam Bhutagaanadi Sevitam Kapittha Jambu Phala Saara Bhakshitam Uma Sutam Shokavinaasha Kaaranam Namaami Vigneshvara Paada Pankajam Shadananam Kumkuma Raktavarnam Mahaamatim Divya Mayura Vaahanam Rudrasya Sunam Surasainya Natham Guhaam Sadaaham Sharanam Prapadye Yaa Kundendu Tushaara Haara Dhavalaa Yaa Shubhra Vastraavritaa Yaa Vina Varadanda Mantita Karaa Yaa Shvetaa Padmaasanaa Yaa Brahmaachyuta Shankara Prabhritibhi Devaihi Sadaa Pujitaa Saa Maam Paatu Saraswati Bhagavati Nishesha Jaadyaapahaa Om Namah Shivaaya Gurave Sat-chit-ananda Murtaye Nishprapanchaaya Shaantaaya Sri Sivanandaya Te Namaha Sri Vishnudevanandaya Te Namaha Om Sarve Mangala Mangalye Shive Sarvartha Sadhike Sharanye Trayambake Gauri Naaraayani Namostute Naaraayani Namostute

I prostrate myself before the lotus feet of Vigneshvara (Ganesha), the son of Uma, who destroys sorrow, who is served by the host of angels, who has the face of an elephant, who partakes of the essence of kapittha and jambu fruits. I always take refuge in Guha of six faces (Subramanya), who is of deep red color like kumkuma, who possesses great knowledge, who has the divine peacock to ride on, who is the son of Rudra (Siva), and who is the leader of the army of the devas (gods and angels). May the Goddess Saraswati, who wears a garland white like the kunda-flower, the moon and the snow, who is adorned with pure white clothes, whose hands are ornamented with the vina and the gesture of blessings, who is seated on a white Lotus, who is always worshipped by Brahma, Vishnu, Siva and other gods, who is the remover of all inertness and laziness, protect me. Salutations to Guru Shiva, who is the embodiment of Existence-Knowledge-Bliss Absolute, in whom worldliness does not exist, who is ever peaceful. Salutations to Sri Sivananda, Salutations to Swami Vishnudevananda.

I salute the three-eyed Divine Mother Narayani, who brings auspiciousness and who fulfils all the desires of the devotee (both spiritual and material)

Om. We worship the three-eyed One (Lord Siva) Who has that sweet fragrance and who nourishes all beings May He liberate us from death for the sake of Immortality Like a cucumber is severed from its bondage to the creeper Om.
