  1. 1. Finding Your Perfect Meditation Posture
  2. 2. If you have ever tried meditation before, you have probably experienced some pain from sitting in an uncomfortable position for long periods of time.
  3. 3. This is because you are not using the correct meditation posture for your body.
  4. 4. Not everyone can take sitting with their legs crossed for ten minutes at a time; in fact you could end up cutting off your circulation and hurting yourself.
  5. 5. Finding your perfect meditation posture may take a little time, but there are a few positions that many people find works for them much better than others.
  6. 6. The key to finding a good meditation posture is finding one that is the most comfortable for you.

  15. 15. Burmese posture: This posture is very similar to the tailor’s posture, but it is a bit easier on the hips.
  16. 16. Instead of making the bottom of your feet touch each other, tuck one foot behind the other.

  21. 21. The bottom of your feet should point towards your body.
  22. 22. The lotus posture is used by many different meditations and represents the connection between Heaven and Earth.
  23. 23. Kneeling: If you can’t find a meditation posture that works for you, try a kneeling posture.
  24. 24. This is much more comfortable for most people, especially if you are overweight or have limited flexibility.
  25. 25. Kneel down and sit on top of your legs with the arches of your foot pointing up.
  26. 26. Try each one of these postures for a few minutes and decide which one you like best.
