Dear Venerable Dhammasami
I have been reading your book - I have to go over parts of it several times to be sure I understand it - But there are many things I am still not sure of. For instance:
Most of my life I have suffered from arthritis and now, in my seventies I have quite a lot of arthrosis in my hips and the joints of my legs. For this reason I find it quite impossible to adopt anything resembling the usual sitting meditation position. In my morning meditation, which I do every day as soon as I wake - OK, I do miss sometimes! - I usually sit on a chair in the dark of my bedroom.
This way I have very pain, usually no more than an itchy face or a twitch in a leg.
Is it all right to use this sitting position?
With loving kindness
