In the Hatha Yoga Pradipika Granth, Siddhasana is said to be the best among the eighty-four rugs. Siddhasana purifies the excrement of the 72,000 nadis present in the body by attaining easy attainment of meditation and awakening one’s life.


The Sanskrit word siddha has many meanings and implications. It means ‘power’ and ‘perfection’, so that this asana can also be called the perfect pose or the powerful pose.

The word siddhi is derived from siddha and means a psychic power or faculty developed through yogic practices. 

This includes clairvoyance, telepathy as well as many other lesser known powers such as the ability to disappear at will. Siddhasana is believed to be the asana that helps to develop these powers.

Similar to Padmaasan, helpful in achieving perfection, hence called Siddhasan.
