733Question From Email - Sitting Position
- Jul 18, 2002My suggestion is to simply sit in a comfortable position. Not so comfortable
that you naturally fall asleep and not so uncomfortable that it distracts
from your meditation. For some people that might mean supporting the back
for others it might not. So if you are more comfortable with your back being
supported, then that should be the position for you.
Some additional points.
Over time you may decide to change your position - your level of relaxation
and the state of your back muscles may warrant a change.
During meditation you may reach a stage where you no longer feel the chair,
so initial position may not be that important.
You can experiment to find the best position, rather than forcing yourself
into what you think is the best position.

meditation.My question is,is it OK to
support my back with the back of the
