The Mangala mantra is in use since the Rig Veda and is customarily sung on the end of rituals. It helps to bring the work out to a calm end; closing in work finished and offering the hard work of our exercise to progress the world’s state. The real meaning of the closing mantra is to desire for prosperity, peace, and pleasure for all conceptions of the world. This is similar to the motives for working out yoga as declared in the Holy Bhagavad Gita. The endeavor to uplift and purify our personal life as given in the opening prayer must be done selflessly for the profit of enriching and uplifting the world. Thus the openings mantras talk about the profits of the exercise to our self as well as the closing mantras dedicate it to others.

Meaning of the opening mantra:
I bend over to the lotus foot of the Teacher
The awakening pleasure of one’s individual Self-revealed
Beyond better, acting like the Jungle physician
Pacifying delusion, the poison of Sansara
Taking the shape of a man to the shoulders
Holding a conch, a discus, as well as a sword
One thousand heads white
To Pantanjali, I salute.

Nya Yena Margena Mahim Mahishaha
Go Brahmanebhyaha Shubamastu Nityam
Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu
Shanti Shanti Shantihi
Meaning of closing mantra:
May all be fine with humanity
May the leaders of the earth guard in every way, by keeping to the right path
May there be decency for those who know the earth to be sacred
May all the worlds are happy

When you work out asana, you are practicing with your mind, body, spirit and energy on various levels. One of the outcomes of an asana workout is that you are ready for the more delicate practices for example chanting and pranayama. If you are practicing asana without adding one or more delicate workouts, it is like getting ready to go out after that just sitting by yourself in the kitchen. You lose out on amazing distorted states of awareness and feelings of bliss and connection.
