Meditation Postures 


I always counter-recommend the lotus posture (legs arrangement as in the top picture) and instead recommend the legs arrangement as in the bottom posture, which is sometimes called "Burmese" "easy" or even "beginners".  I also don't like the half-lotus (legs as in the middle variations) because it tends to have a distorting effect and as an alternative to lotus is much less balanced than what is sometimes called "Burmese," "easy" or "beginners".  Don't be fooled by the "easy" label or by the idea that the lotus is for "advanced meditators"...meditation is a mental discipline and the only purpose of the posture is so that you can sit and be relaxed, stable and healthy doing it.   Find what is comfortable, stable, and healthy, and use it without being concerned.


in friendliness,


V.
