Ancient scriptures of India have given us detailed instructions on all aspects of a Yogic life. This includes how to sit, and what to sit on for meditation and worship. The 'seat' recommended for modern times is a mat made of wool and/or silk, because these materials retain positive vibrations and repel disturbing vibrations. In India, this seat is called an "ASANA" because the yogis would sit on it in padmasana (lotus posture). With daily use, your Asana will retain meditative vibrations and help you to go deeper into meditation each time you sit on it to meditate.
Those who prefer to sit on chairs can still have a wool mat asana in front of the altar or to have under the feet. Use our Supreme Swan Silk and Wool Meditation Blanket made especially for chair use.
Your Asana is usually kept in your sacred space and can be taken to other gatherings such as satsangas, kirtans, pujas. It is best to use it only for sacred practice, prayer and study so that it will remind you of your meditative and worshipful state of being.
If treated with proper care, your Asana Wool Meditation Mat can last a lifetime.
