The Right Meditation Posture


  • Sit comfortably, either on a chair or cross-legged on the floor on a cushion
  • Make your spine long, as if you are being pulled upwards from the top of your head
  • Relax your shoulders
  • Optional: Rest your back against a wall


  • Bend your head slightly, as if gazing down from a balcony
  • Relax all muscles around your mouth
  • Close your eyes 99%, keeping all muscles around your eyes relaxed and letting a little slither of light through


  • Rest them comfortably in your lap or on your knees
  • Optional: Make a specific hand gesture or mudra (Sanskrit-word for seal) for better energy flow:
