Yoga Basics -Indian loin cloth (Langota )

Post by Aemilius »



In this video i speak about the proper method of wearing the langota. The misconception that the Indian loin cloth damages the reproductive organs is due to the improper method of wearing it. the proper method as shown in the video involves making the langota as tight fitting as comfortably possible and to keep the genital organ pointing upwards.

The importance of a langota is in the part one:-
svaha
"All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.
They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
Sarvē mānavāḥ svatantrāḥ samutpannāḥ vartantē api ca, gauravadr̥śā adhikāradr̥śā ca samānāḥ ēva vartantē. Ētē sarvē cētanā-tarka-śaktibhyāṁ susampannāḥ santi. Api ca, sarvē’pi bandhutva-bhāvanayā parasparaṁ vyavaharantu."
Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 1. (in english and sanskrit)
