Swastika means a prosperous in sanskrit. When this pose is
performed, the ankle lock brings the appearance of the swastika.
Sit on the four folded blanket. Stretch the legs in front
of you. Bend the right leg at the knee and keep the heel against
the groin of the left thigh so that the sole will be lying
in close contact with the thigh.
Similarly, bend the left leg and set it against the right
groin. Insert the toes of the left foot between the right
calf and thigh muscles. Now you will find the two feet between
the caft and thigh muscles. This is very comfortable for meditation.
Keep the hands as instructed in padmasan.
