People who want to become a meditation pursuant should know the fact that, they must have to go through some yogic asana in terms of learning the meditation. Let’s talk about some asana which gives you right body postures and deep level of concentration with healing  body development.  

Asana : Prior to everything , asana is spoken of as the first part of hatha yoga – Context from Hatha Yoga Pradipika – Having done asana, one attains steadiness of body and mind, freedom from disease and lightness of the limbs. Asana means a state of being in which one can remain physically and mentally steady, calm , quiet and comfortable. In the yoga sutras of patanjali there is concise definition of yogasanas : “ Sthiram sukham aasananam” , meaning that position which is comfortable and steady.

Meditation Asana  - The main purpose of the meditation asana is to allow the practitioner to sit for extended periods of time without moving the body and without discomfort. Only when the body has been steady and still for some time will meditation be experienced. Deep meditation requires the spinal column to be straight and very few asanas can satisfy this condition. Furthermore , in high stages of meditation the practitioner loses control over the muscles of the body. The meditation asana, therefore , needs to hold the body in a steady position without conscious effort. Why not lie in shavasana, then, for meditation since it satisfies all the requirements ? Because in shavasana there is a tendency to drift into sleep> It is essential to remain awake and alert while going through the various stages which lead to successful meditation.
Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh said the following about asanas and meditation: “ you must be able to sit in one of the meditation asansas for a full three hours at a stretch without the body shaking. Then only will you gain true asana siddhi, mastery over the asana, and be able to practise the higher stages of pranayama and dhyana. Without securing a steady asana, you cannot progress well in meditation. The more steady you are in your asana, the more you will be able to concentrate with a one-pointed mind. If you can be steady in a posture even for one hour, you will be able to acquire a one pointed mind and fee the atmic anandam  , infinite peace and souful bliss inside you.”
Initially , most people will find it difficult to sit in one asana for a long time. However, through regular practice of the pre – meditation poses listed here, the legs and hips will become flexible enough to comfortably maintain a steady posture.
Pre- meditation asanas : The following selected practices from the pawanmuktasana series are most useful for preparing the body for the meditation asanas :
1.       Goolf chakra
2.       2. Janu chakra
3.       Ardh titali asana ( half butterfly).
4.       Shroni chakra (hip butterfuly)
5.       Poorna titali ( full butterfly )
6.       Vayu nishakasana (wind releasing pose)
7.       Udarakarshan asana ( abdominal stretch pose )
8.       Shaithalyasna ( animal relaxation pose) , refer to chapter on forward bending asanas.
Stillness : When sitting in meditation postures ,program the mind with suggestions like ,” I am as steady as a rock” or “ I am becoming motionless like a statue. “ This way the asana will quickly become steady and , after a while, will be comfortable for extended periods of time. This is the practice of kaya sthairyam, complete body stillness.
Alternative postures : Apart from the postures mentioned in this chapter, there are four other asanas which are useful for meditation. These are described – Vajrasana group of asana . They are :
1.       Vajraasana ( thunderbolt pose )
2.       Ananda madirasana  ( intoxicating bliss pose)
3.       Padadhirasana ( breath balancing pose)
4.       Bhadrasana ( gracious pose ).
Other asanas, such as gorakhshansa or moola bandhasana, may also be used for meditation but they are advanced practices and not comfortable for prolonged periods of time. These are described in the advanced asanas Chapter.
Precautions while performing meditation Asanas : If there is  discomfort or pain in the legs after sitting for some time in a meditation asana , slowly unlock the legs and massage hem. When the blood circulation has returned to normal and there is no pain, resume the asana. However , be aware that the Knee is a very delicate and much abused joint of the body and be careful not to strain it. Especially while moving into or out of these meditation asanas. Do not on any account use undue force or strain to sit in a meditation asana. Carefully observe the contra- indications given for individual asanas.
Right or Left leg : In all the asanas discussed here either the left or the right leg may be placed uppermost. It is a matter of personal preference and depends on whichever is the more comfortable. Ideally , the leg position should be alternated so that the balance on both sides of the body is maintained.
Practice note : A useful suggestion to make the following postures more comfortable is to place a small cushion under the buttocks.
Note : Padmasana may seem out of place in the beginners group. It has been included because a series of asanas in the intermediate group is performed using it as the base position.

The easy Meditation pose – Sukhasana – Sit with the legs straight in front of the body, Bend one leg and place the foot under the opposite thigh. Bend the other leg and place the foot under the opposite thigh. Place the hands on the Knees in chin or jnana mudra. Keep the head, neck and bak upright and straight , but without strain. Close the eyes.Relax the whole body. The arms should be relaxed and not held straight.
Benefits : Sukhasana is the easiest and most comfortable of the meditation postures. It can be utilized without ill effect by persons who are unable to sit in the more difficult meditation postures. It facilitates mental and physical balance without causing strain or pain.
Practice note : Sukhasana is a relaxing posture which may be used after extended periods of sitting in siddhasana or padmasana. Although sukhasana is said to be the simplest meditation posture , it is difficult to sustain for long periods of time unless the Knees are close to the ground or on the ground.Otherwise most of the body weight is supported by the buttocks and backache develops. The other meditation asanas create a larger and therefore steadier area of support.
Variation : For those who are extremely stiff , Sukhasana may be performed sitting cross-legged with a belt or cloth tied around the knees and lower back.
Hold the spine upright.  Concentrate on the physical balance and equalizing the weight on the right and left side of the body. Alight, spacey feeling may be experienced. While maintaining the posture, place the hands on the knees in chin or jnana mudra.
Vajrasana Vajrasana is highly thought of as a meditation posture in many cultures throughout the world. The vajra or thunderbolt is said to be the weapon of Indra, king of the devas or gods; just as the mind is the king of all the senses. Vajra is also the major nadi directly connected with the genitor-urinary system, which regulates the sexual energy in the body. Control of vajra nadi leads to sublimation and control of sexuality . The vajrasana series is therefore every beneficial for the reproductive as well as digestive organs and is also reasonably easy to perform.

Right- handed people will generally find that these asana are easily learned with the right side leading. They should then be performed with the left side leading to counter balance the effects of habitual behaviour patterns.

Precautions : Do not practice vajrasana and other static asanas in this series until the ankles and knees are sufficiently flexible. Ajrasana is not advisable in osteoarthritis, or in pregnancy when extra weight can overload the knee joints. Carefully observe the contra- indications given for individual asanas.
