  1. I have never found it comfortable to sit in a typical cross legged position, especially without a backrest, so it was nice to see some alternatives. I usually just give up on sitting and end up lying down, and then I end up falling asleep instead of actually meditating. The Vajrassana pose looks like it would work well for me. I’ll have to try it out.

    1. Thanks Shanna for a visit to my site.I am glad to know that you are already practicing meditation.If you find it difficult to sit cross legged you can do meditation in which ever pose you like ,for example sitting in chair,or lying down,it is pretty natural to fall asleep and do not worry about it much,what is more important is you have spent some time may be around 2,3,5 minutes before sleep for yourselves.

  2. This is a great article on sitting meditation poses, I don’t know much about meditation but I’ve heard people say that it’s good for you and that there are many positive effects. You stated that someone should sit in the Vajrassana, Padmassana, or the Sidhhasana to gain maximum results. This may seem like a silly question but I’m going to ask it because I would really like to know the answer to it. What are the maximum results?

    1. Thanks WMP for visit to my site,there are various positive effects of meditation,your mind should be also strong as your health to become something in are sometimes not able to focus during meditation during early stages,and your mind wanders here and there,not coming in control of you, sitting in one of these poses helps .this is what I mean by maximum results.
