INVOCATION TO PATAÑJALI: This much less common invocation to Patañjali celebrates him as a manifestation of Siva. As such he is lord of the serpents and snakes—the king of the Nagas. These serpents are able to live on nothing and arise from nothing … which is their refuge and abode. As such, Patañjali fears nothing in either this world or that, for those things that seem poisonous, in this world, are a product of the serpents' ability to create all.
