Basic Practice

This practice is based upon a form of insight meditation. In order to do this basic practice, first, find someplace quiet to sit, where you won’t be disturbed.

Pick out a chair that you won’t mind sitting on for half an hour, more or less. You should be able to sit with your spine relatively straight, without slouching. You do not need to sit in the “lotus position,” or any other special posture in order to do this practice. Of course, if it’s easy for you, go ahead. It just isn’t necessary, that’s all. The most important rule for practice is… You don’t need to sit in pain!
