Natural Meditation Mat - Asanas

Wool Asana for Meditation Online in India

The Indian scriptural texts speak at length about the practice of meditation. They advise using a mat for meditation to bolster and support a meditation practice. A meditation mat is also called an 'asana' which in Sanskrit means 'seat' or ‘sitting'. An asana can also be used while performing other spiritual practices such as svadhyaya (recitation of spiritual texts), japa and puja. The scriptures recommend using a woollen mat for meditation.

When we meditate we create a crucible of powerful spiritual energy. Using a natural meditation mat for meditation helps to store this energy. This stored spiritual energy facilitates the intended goal of meditation. And this is the reason, meditation mats or asanas are not shared. The scriptures say that spiritual practices performed without an asana bear no fruit. The energy generated by the practices dissipates into the surface that one is sitting on. This is particularly relevant today as most of the surfaces we sit on are made of synthetic material.

Wool is a natural fibre and 100% bio-degradable. Along with being good for the body, mind and soul, it is also good for the environment. Wool is anti-microbial and anti-bacterial, ensuring the longevity and durability of the asana. Woollen mats for meditation offer a soft, comfortable and firm base for meditation. This is particularly useful when meditating for long periods of time.

A superbly crafted organic meditation asana is essential in setting up a meditation practice. They support the spine and ease the pressure on the joints, ensuring that you can sit in meditation for longer stretches of time. This is quite literally the magic carpet that takes you into the vast dimensions of your inner world.
