VAJRASANA - The Hardy Hose STEP 3
Vajrasana is one of the few Asanas, which is suitable for all most everyone. It is perhaps one of the few Asana which is not difficult and can be adopted by anyone of any age group with little practice and patience.
To start it just kneel on a ground (suitable for performing Yogic exercises as already advised earlier) when your knees, ankles and big toes are touching, while slightly moving your heels outwards and sit between the space of your heels and legs.
If you feel any difficulty in moving your heels outwards and your feet not touching the ground, then sit on high place or (It can be bed also in the beginning) cushioned platform and try to sit in between your heels, while your feet are half hanging. Then gradually bring them fully on the platform after few sessions.
Sit as erect as possible for you and keep your hands on your knees while looking straight. In the beginning sit from one minute to 5 or 10 minutes while keeping your eyes open and breathing slow and deep.
In Praise of Vajrasana
The foundation stone
Of our health and healthy relations
Regular practice of Vajrasana
Serves like a tonic
Not only your spine
But also all your vital organs
On which depends
Our relations and understandings
The love and pleasures of our life and
It helps like giving bones to a boneless creature.
The most significant
Blessings of this wonderful Asana
Is that Vajrasana
Improves your confidence level
It improves your vision and understanding
While making you more tolerant
Filled with love, sympathy
And with the vital energy of life
Make the lives of your partner
And of others
Happy and beautiful.
It removes spinal pains
Even it is beneficial in cases of
Neuralgic headaches, sloth, stiffness.
The most significant
Blessing of this Asana is that
Worry and Cowardice
Fear and hesitation
And even the weakness of organs
It also helps in
Reducing flatulence and improves
The most beautiful gift
And blessings of Vajrasana
Is the gift of Youth
Which bestows on it followers
When they practice it regularly

Even it gives its blessings to
One of the few Asanas
Which can be performed
Even by advance Heart patients
