Experience sharing of practicing double sitting posture

Double disc sitting, commonly known as double disc – first put the left foot on the right thigh, and then put the right foot on the left thigh, this double disc sitting posture, also known as “auspicious sitting”. If the sole of the right foot is placed on the left thigh, and then the sole of the left foot is placed on the right thigh, that is, in the opposite direction, it is called “Devil Descent Seat”, or “Vajra Seat” (illustrated below). The functions are different, so the names are different.

There are many friends who envy and complain about cross-legged, in order to help friends who have the intention to practice double-disc lotus sitting, this time I specially invited Doris teacher from Yuanlin as a model to teach everyone how to practice double-disc at home.

Please note that this article is to teach how to double disc, not to teach sitting posture, there are more things to pay attention to in sitting posture, and I will explain it next time. You must know that practicing cross-legged is the kung fu of grinding an iron pestle into an embroidery needle, and you must not be in a hurry, but you must also grind every day to have a chance of success. If you have any questions, please respond below.

The trick to practicing cross-legged is loose, people with tight joints in the lower body will never experience looseness, such people please do what you can, how much concave is counted, and then it is to support, support within your limits for a period of time, during this time in the heart try to loosen the body, do not pull hard, so as not to practice divine skills also from the palace.

Start by moving your muscles:

Sit on the mat with your waist straight, your feet straight, and start moving your feet.

Let’s cross one foot first, move the hip joint up and down, left and right:

The goal is to move the hip, not the knee or ankle. Straightened feet should be positioned and not scattered. Then press the body forward with your feet:

If you can’t press down, you can gently grasp both hands and wait for a minute or two to stay relaxed:

After doing both feet, you can also add the following movements to soften the lower body:

Remember to do this lightly and not hard press. Let’s take one foot and the other horizontally in front of the plate as shown below, doing a more advanced soft activity:

The body ‘lowered’ forward try to touch the ground, what cannot be done is mainly to relax the body, do not press forward hard, but let it go for more than one or two minutes.

Then try to single the first plate, before you can not double the plate, it is normal to practice a single game for a few months, try to single the game for more than half an hour each time, and then change feet after half an hour, you can practice while reading a book:

Even if you have a high foot, it is normal, that is, to practice.

Please note that the ankle joint is loosened in order to flatten the foot into a pressed ankle:

The correct leg is to put the whole calf on the thigh of the other foot, as shown below:

Both feet should be practiced, and it is normal for the legs to be tight and loose at the same time, and should not be wasted.

The double disk is relaxed, not the hard disk, although so, when you first start to practice, anyone is gritting their teeth and slowly concave, but as long as the mood is relaxed and not in a hurry, one day you will experience the sense of achievement of suddenly loosening, not the frustration of breaking the joint.

Finally, I would like to remind that double-disc lotus sitting is one of the asana and one of the meditation postures, which is not equivalent to meditation, and the two are related but not equal. In terms of the school I taught, lotus sitting is very important and has a great influence on both the body and mind, but how to sit for a long time, how to sit? This is not what this article is about, this article is just to teach everyone to practice legs, although so, you can practice for an hour or two and feel at ease, and meditate kung fu.

If you meditate for a long time without feeling air, and the hip femur angle is large, the disease will occur. If the left foot is long, problems will occur in the lower body, such as poor gastrointestinal digestion, urinary kidneys, reproductive organs, bladder and other problems. Most of the problems of the length of the right foot occur in the upper body, such as heart blood vessels, lungs, respiratory problems, nasal diseases, etc. Therefore, to restore health, we should reverse the actions of habits, adjust and break habits. Some people look very thin, can not come up in meditation, that kind of people must have long and short feet, the spine is not straight, there are many problems, so the spine is very healthy.

Ridge straightness:

Each cone of the spine is like an abacus bead stacked upright, naturally upright. Due to the habit caused by natural physiological curvature, the lumbar cone tends to protrude posteriorly when sitting, and attention should be paid to correcting.

Shoulder Tension:

The shoulders should be relaxed but not straight.

Specific method: After sitting up, the top of the head is collared, the entire spine is straightened, the chest is slightly straightened, the shoulders are open, and then relaxed from top to bottom, and the upper body is in a natural and straight state. In this way, it can be maintained without tension and slackness.

People who tend to scatter can use another type of mudra: the thumb touches the base of the ring finger lightly, and it is lightly clenched into a fist, which is divided on the knee, and the arms are naturally straightened to keep the shoulders balanced.

Head in the middle:

The head does not tilt, does not tilt, and the chin is slightly adducted (not bowed). This is conducive to the integrity of the neck cone, and can slightly compress the carotid artery, slow down physiological activities, reduce metabolism, and facilitate calming.
