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.
