Would someone kindly give a reference to sutta(s) about not moving the body in meditative practice?

Thanks in advance,

Hello Dymtro,

[10] "And what is mindfulness of in-&-out breathing? There is the case where a monk — having gone to the wilderness, to the shade of a tree, or to an empty building — sits down folding his legs crosswise, holding his body erect, and setting mindfulness to the fore. Always mindful, he breathes in; mindful he breathes out.

This is the only subject of meditation for which the Buddha has recommended a definite posture, and it seems encompass the idea that movement ought to be kept to a bare minimum, as any movement would alter the posture.

The going for refuge is the door of entrance to the teachings of the Buddha.

Bhikku Bodhi.
