English: The lotus position (Devanāgarī: पद्मासन; IAST: padmāsana) is a cross-legged sitting posture originating in meditative practices of ancient India, in which the feet are placed on the opposing thighs.
It is an established posture, commonly used for meditation, in the Hindu Yoga and Buddhist contemplative traditions. The position is said to resemble a lotus, to encourage breathing proper to associated meditative practice, and to foster physical stability.
