Today's yogic tip

From Dharma Mittra (of the famous 608 asana chart ).
He says that for any yoga practitioner there are eight basic asanas which can be used to maintain basic health: are headstand, shoulderstand, cobra, forward bend, spinal twist, maha mudra (though the Bihar school suggests this is not for everybody!), siddhasana... and lotus..

He calls Siddhasana (otherwise translated to be the pose of the Achieved one/one who attained siddhis) the easy lotus!! It is rather a tough one,I think. I only can negotiate it, but find the bone contact rather painful! So obviously we all have to keep on growwwing!!
