Hinduism - What Is Bhadrasana?




Bhadrasana means "good stance" or Gracious Pose in Sanskrit. 



This is one of the sitting positions (asana) mentioned in comments to the Yoga Sutras in yoga practice. 



  • In this posture, the legs are crossed and the feet are tucked under the thighs, forming a hollow around the scrotum with the crossed heels. 
  • Because the cupped hands are put over the hollow created by the heels, concealing the private parts, this is referred to as the "decent posture." 
  • This is a popular position in Hindu iconography in which representations of deities are shown.
