I have observed that Vajrasan ( a posture in ancient yoga) and Namaaz( prayer of muslims) have similar postures.
the sitting method with knees bent and spine/back resting on ankles and breathing method is same in namaz

can someone throw light on this


Time: 2 minutes


    * Sit on your heels.
    * Hands on knees, abdomen drawn in, chest up, back straight, shoulders squared, head erect.
    * Normal breathing.

Benefits: Aids digestion and helps cure sciatica.

Sukhra Vajrasan is sitting on same posture and bending your uppse body front and toucing ground with your forehead, without lifting your back from ankles

same methos is used in namaaz


thats ryt !

i am used to namaaz.. it seemed same vn i postured it..

well it is the best posture to increase concentration n memory power.


i tried vajrasan a lot but coud never inhale into stomach only
default it goes into lungs


it needs some practice
pranayaama need to be done initially to get used to breath control


in namaz they sit with toes up
in vajrasan u flatten toes also
but in the end effect is same as remaining body posture is same
in this pose all 7 chakras in body come into one straight line along the spinal chord
when it happens breathing shud be rhythmic and into stomach only and this hot air circulating throughout body and 7 chakras will start activating kundalini


I attended yoga sessions for few days.Initially i felt vajrasan is tough but later on with practice it became some what easier.It helps a great deal for respiratory problems.Pranayams also helps a lot.


namaz is followed by muslims daily
hindus who had original of that i.e vajrasan lost it and got fat bellies


when adharvaNa veda was stolen from india, many such things left india
germans used swastik symbol, lufthansa symbol etc


My yoga instructor says that sitting in vajrasan for half an hour besides being good for digestion etc is also equivalent to 5km of brisk walking. Is this true? Can anyone explain?
