Perfect Pose, Accomplished Pose (Siddhasana)

One of the most popular meditation postures is Siddhasana. The Sanskrit name means "Perfect Pose," because one attains perfection in Yoga by meditating in this position. Siddhasana is useful to learn, since it is used as the practice seat for some of the pranayamas and the mudras. The positions of the legs and the hands also contain the body energies by closing the circuits and allowing awakened vital forces to remain in the system during meditation practice.

Technique

  1. Sit down with both legs outstretched.
  2. Bend the left knee and place the sole of the left foot against the right thigh so that the heel touches the perineum.
  3. Bend the right knee and put the right heel against the public bone.
  4. Keep hands with palms open if done between sunrise and sunset; otherwise reverse the palms.
  5. The spine should always be held erect.

This is Siddhasana. Once this has been mastered, it is truly a comfortable position for meditation practice.
