The siddh Asana is one of the finest meditative poses adapted by most of the sages or seers, named after them. The Siddh Asana is also called Adept Pose. The adept is one who has attained proficiency in the control of mind and awakening of the dormant nerve current in the body. It is also known as the perfect pose or the sage pose. It is comparatively easier pose to adopt - since there is no locking of legs, which cannot be sustained by many people for long.
