Meditational Asanas

Concept Meditation Asana Series

Concept:

Maharshi Patanjali has averred - sthiram sukham asanam i.e. that comfortable pose in which one can sit without any body movement is termed as asana. According to Shivanand if one can sit for three hours without any body movement, then one can attain all the accomplishments and benefits of asanas. Obviously, he too shares the Pantajali viewpoint. Though this is difficult initially but certainly not impossible. To sit in meditational poses, one requires adequate flexibility in all the muscles and above all a healthy body. The important point regarding this asanas is that one must hold the spinal chord straight which is not easy all the time. Generally whenever we sit or whatever we do, we tend to tilt ourselves in one particular direction. One may be tempted to ask, why not use shavasana during meditational asanas. As during this pose the body remains inactive and the spinal chord too remains straight. But to meditate during shavasana is not so easy. One may be easily induced to sleep and never meditate.
