The significance of Ghongadi in spiritual practice, yoga, and meditation has been described by the saints from the Puranic times. Since Ghongadi regulates the body's energy and temperature, it gives immense satisfaction while sitting and meditating on the blanket. Ghongadi should be used to read religious manuscripts for concentration and inner peace.
Handwoven in Pure Wool Ghongadis are made with love for those who seek the gift of bliss. As per the shastras (sacred scriptures), there are three different variants of asanas: Vyaghra Jin/Charm, Mrug Jin/Charm, Sheep Wool Asans (Ghongadis). The ghongadi can be placed in your home or office and could well be rolled and carried while traveling. Gift one to yourself or your loved ones and gain the blessings of gratitude.
As per the scriptures, sitting posture and comfort while sitting in one state over an extended period of time are as essential as the very intention of meditation. In fact, preparation to embark on your quest is as significant as your journey itself. Masters of Meditation recommend that the asana ideally should be of pure wool, as it retains the spiritual energy of the self over prolonged usage.
मृद्वासने कुशान् सम्यगास्तीर्याजिनमेव च । लम्बोदरं च सम्पूज्य फलमोदकभक्षणैः ॥
According to Svetasvatara Upanishad, seated in an easy posture, on Asana(mat) worshipping Ganapati with fruits and sweetmeats, placing the right palm on the left, holding the throat and head in the same line, the lips closed and firm, facing the east or the north, the eyes fixed on the tip of the nose, avoiding too much food or fasting, the Nâdis should be purified, without which the practice will be fruitless.
