Hathayoga 1-3

भ्रान्त्या बहुमत-ध्वान्ते राज-योगमजानताम् ।

हठ-प्रदीपिकां धत्ते स्वात्मारामः कृपाकरः ॥ ३॥

Bhrāntyā bahumatadhvānte rājayogamajānatām hathapradīpikām dhatte svātmārāmah krpākarah

Owing to the darkness arising from the multiplicity of opinions people are unable to know the Râja Yoga. Compassionate Swâtmârâma composes the Hatha Yoga Pradipikâ like a torch to dispel it.
