Chapter I


I.1 Salutations to the one who taught the vidya (knowledge) of hatha yoga, which is a ladder for those who would like to ascend to the lofty raja yoga.

2 After saluting his lord and guru, Svatmarama yogi presents the vidya (knowledge) of hatha yoga only for the purpose of attaining raja yoga.

3 For those who are ignorant of raja yoga and are in the darkness of ignorance and misunderstanding due to conflicting information, compassionate Svatmarama offers hatha yoga as a light of understanding.

4 Matsyendra, Goraksa, and others have a thorough understanding of hatha yoga, and by grace, the yogi Svatmarama also learned these things.

5 Sriadinatha, Matsyendra, Sabara, Anandabhairava, Caurangi, Mina, Goraksa, Virupaksa, Bilesaya,

6 Manthana, Bhairava, Siddhi, Buddha, Kanthadi, Korantaka, Surananda, Siddhapada, Carpati,

7 Kaneri, Pujyapada, Nityanatha, Niranjana, Kapali, Bindunatha, Kakacandisvara,

8 Allama, Prabhudeva, Ghodacoli, Tintini, Bhanuki, Naradeva, Khandah, Kapalika

9 and many other siddhis who have conquered time and move freely around this universe through the power of hatha yoga.
