ETYMOLOGY: the term 'Vajra' has the following meanings: lightning (not thunder), powerful light, weapon of the god Indra, diamond, precious jewel.
In the spiritual teaching known under the name Mahayana, Vajra is the emblem, the attribute of the highest spiritual power.
GENERAL GUIDELINES: Vajra is the name of a subtle nadi, which begins at the end of the masculine genital organ and therefore, Vajra is the esoteric denomination of the penis.
Some Hindu yogis call this asana SUPTA VAJRASANA, fact which confirms that this asana awakens the energy of virility.
In Sanskrit, VIRA means 'warrior', 'hero', and 'man' in the 'virile' sense of the term. Virility is understood here in a broader sense - that is it refers to the solar, masculine energies, and is not restricted to the sexual connotation.
EXECUTION AND SUBTLE ENERGY EFFECTS:
In order to practice hatha yoga you need to have experienced supervision; also, being part of a yoga practice group helps. Some asanas have medical counter indications - we urge you not to consider this site a guide to the practice of hatah yoga. We chose not to publish this information on the sivasakti.net website; you can find it in the yoga classes organized by our school.
- This asana acts on the feet, in the sense that the pain in the area are diminished if you stay for 10-15 minutes in this asana. It prevents varicose.
- The practice of this asana leads to the stretching of the ligaments and tendons, which will soon regain their elasticity.
- The famous yogi DHIRENDRA BRAHMACHARI recommended the practice of this asana in cases of amygdalitis and some sight problems.
- Supta Vajrasana has an outstanding effect on the blood circulation, as the blood does not reach the feet from knees down to the same extent, and it is thus directed towards the pelvic and abdominal areas.
- This asana stimulates the activity of the gonads. Owing to this increase of the gonad hormones, masculine or feminine, according to the case, there will occur an increase of the masculinity and womanliness respectively.
- This asana acts on the lumbar vertebras and on the nervous centres situated in this area, which are highly stimulated.
