"Meditating on a woolen blanket brings peace and all attainments." Shree Skanda Purana.
The Omved Yantra Asana is made of 100% wool, because wool is a natural and therefore, pure fibre.
It is a remarkable insulator, both physically and metaphysically and hence most suitable for meditation and japa and protects against the cold from seeping into your body which could lead to joint pains, chills and aches, besides taking your concentration away from the ritual practice you are engaged in.
A woolen 'asan' is also safer while doing hawans or lighting lamps and agarbattis.
The sparks that fly will only singe the wool and not cause a fire, as wool does not burn.
Embedded in the four corners of this soft mat are four copper Shree Yantras, the King of all vedic power symbols.
It is one of the most ancient symbols, used for many millennia to invoke good fortune, wealth, health, and as an aid for meditation.
It has the power to draw the energy of the universe and thus any meditation done while being surrounded by this yantra is extremely powerful and energised.
Top quality natural yarn fibers, dyed pure wool blend. Hand sewn trim in cotton.
Approx. 24" x 22". Packaged in a gossamer organdie (organza) drawstring bag to preserve the subtle vibrations of your contemplation practices.
You can use the asan by placing on top of a cushion, pillow, rug or mat or directly on floor. A cloth can be placed on the mat before sitting on it or one can sit directly on it too.
Clean with damp cloth when needed or hand wash gently with mild soap. Dry on a flat surface and not on a clothing line.
CAUTION: Do not bleach, dry clean, machine wash or tumble dry. These may damage your asana.
