sit semi-cross-legged (hanka fuza 半跏趺坐)

To sit with one foot on the opposite thigh and the other foot under the opposite thigh; the so-called "half lotus" position. A posture often used for sitting meditation (zazen 坐禪), and also when sitting on tatami mat floors during religious services, especially by people for whom the proper cross-legged position ("full lotus") is too difficult. →"sit cross-legged."
