Jhana Posture

Post by pelletboy »

For one striving to achieve jhana, what is the best posture? Should one sit like one sits in meditation or can you achieve in any of the four postures: sitting, lying down, walking, and standing?

Hello PelletBoy:

I know that walking meditation can lead you to the "door" of the first jhana, but when mindfulness is strong enought you naturally will feel the need to sit and watch more carefully what u are seeing.
Anyways, this depends a lot on the type of meditation u are doing, and being sitted is the recommended...

With Metta.
