Before starting yoga practice close your eyes and chant following universal prayers suitable for every caste, creed, culture or religion:

Chant OM three times very clear and deep. 50% time open mouth and 50% time lips together with full awareness.

Then chant following prayer:


|| Om Sahana Vavatu. Sahanau Bhunaktu

Sahaveeryam Karvavahai   ||

|| Tejasvina aVadhitamastu 

Ma Vidhwishavahai ||

|| Om Shanti Shanti Shantihi   ||


Meaning in English : Oh lord ! protect all of us and help us that we get  capacity to study and understand (the scriptures). We acquire the knowledge. With the acquisition of this knowledge let peaceful power also flow in us. Help us that we get brilliance. We don’t hold any grudges (enmity) against anyone.  Om Shanti Shanti Shantihi.


Eyes remain closed and after this chanting, rub your palms together. Cover your face with your hands. Bend forward your head. Maintain full awareness. Slowly  come back and gently open your eyes. This centering process stabilizes the mind and body to enable us to proceed with yoga practice.
