  • Sit down with your legs outstretched in front and keeping the back erect, place your palms on the floor behind the buttocks, with the fingers pointing backward, i.e. Dandasan (See page 117).
  • Flex your right leg, and gradually bring your right heel under the right buttock, with the shin and knee resting on the floor.
  • Bending your left leg similarly, move the left heel under the left buttock.
  • Ensure your heels remain slightly apart and the big toes touch each other.
  • Sit comfortably in between heels, and rest the hands on the knees in any mudra.
  • Make sure your back and head remain erect throughout.
  • As you relax the whole body, close the eyes.
  • Maintain the position at your ease, with slow and even breathing.
  • On the breaths flowing in and out
  • On mentally chanting the Divine Names “Radhey Krishna” with your breaths
  • One of the relaxing asans, it relieves one from severe ailments such as acidity, gas, constipation, and indigestion. 
  • It also helps cure peptic ulcer, piles, menstrual disorder, and hydrocele. 
  • This is the only the asan which can be done for 10-15 minutes even immediately after a meal.
