Best Meditation Posture - Ajahn Dhammasiha

Description

After a meditator went through a lot of pain in the one hour meditation session, Ajahn Dhammasiha explains some basics about suitable posture and dealing with pain in meditation:


  1. It may be more beneficial to mindfully change posture, rather than to push for maximum sitting time
  2. It doesn't have to be Full Lotus Posture. Other options are Half Lotus; Both feet on floor in front; Stool; Chair (Yes, it's possible to meditate on a chair!)
  3. It's much more important to sit with the back upright, than to sit cross-legged
  4. It doesn't have to be sitting meditation. It's perfectly fine to do mostly walking meditation (or standing meditation)
  5. A lot of the 'discomfort' is actually in the mind, not in the body. If we really enjoy our meditation, we naturally can sit much longer without much pain
