Beautiful winter morning. Pictures taken by my adorable wife Astha.

The Padmasana is an elixir for the spinal cord, lungs and stomach. It improves the health and flexibility of spinal cord like the lotus stalk. Keeping the backbone erect and diaphragm in ideal position, the lungs are filled with oxygenated air. Padmasana strengthens the legs by pulling the nerves and muscles and massaging them thoroughly. Padmasana keeps the whole body healthy. There is no better state than being in oneness with the divine while doing Padmasana.

Why we love Padmasana 
Recall your first Yoga class. The Yoga teacher begins with series of warm-up exercises. Now, you are told to cross your legs over your thighs. Oh! a cakewalk for me. Your right foot over your left thigh. Now, your left foot over…… God! I am dying with pain. Your ankle is disobeying your order. The ligaments start aching. Padmasana is the first asana that makes you experience resistance. Your first resolve comes. I will master that.
Gradually, as you progress in your practice, you begin to sit longer and longer until you reach a stage where your muscles and ligaments start obeying you. The first indication of success is here. You have mastered the Padmasana. You are Lotus.
Padmasana is the first stepping stone in the life of a practitioner. Padmasana opens the door to years of practice to perfection.
You have read several benefits of sitting in Padmasana but here we are talking about that first feeling. I cannot, you cannot or any yoga practitioner cannot describe that in words.
Wish love and happiness to all of you.
