Sukhasana is any simple, relaxed pose for Japa and meditation, with the key point being that the head, body, and trunk are all in a straight line. People who begin Japa and meditation after the age of 30 or 40 find it difficult to sit in Padma, Siddha, or Svastikasana for long periods of time. People name any incorrect sitting position ‘Sukhasana.' 

The problem is that the backbone curves in a matter of minutes as though they aren't aware of it. Now I'll show you a lovely Sukhasana in which elderly people can rest and meditate for a long time. 

This is not something that young people can attempt. This is intended mostly for elderly people who, after repeated efforts, are unable to sit in Padmasana or Siddhasana.

Take a 5-cubit-long fabric and fold it in half. Fold it in half lengthwise to make it half a cubit wide. Sit normally, with your knees just behind your elbows. Lift the two knees to the top of your chest, leaving an 8 to 10-inch gap between them. Take the folded fabric now. 

Return to the starting point by keeping one end near the left side and hitting the right leg. Then tie the two ends together in a knot. Place your palms on the comfort of the fabric between your legs, palms facing each other. The hands, knees, and backbone are all helped in this asana. 

As a result, you will never be tired. If you can't do any other Asana, stay in this one for a long time and do Japa and meditation. This Asana can also be used for Svadhyaya (religious book study).
