Gomukhasana - Cow Face Pose (legs)
The cow 🐮 is a very holy animal in India / Hinduism and there are many reasons why. Just one of then is that cows are very peaceful and calm animals, the perfect manifestation of Ahimsa: non-violence! In India you find many cows standing undisturbed in the middle of the traffic just quietly roaming the crazy busy streets. They symbolise great tolerance and patience and therefore also stand for Dharma - living a meaningful & good life.
