- Sit on the floor or suitable chair – try to keep the spine erect.
- Meditate on a light stomach (don’t try to meditate after eating heavy meal!)
- Try to keep the mind calm and quiet and detach from your thoughts.
“In the beginning you should not even think about meditation. Just try to set aside a certain time of day when you will try to be calm and quiet, and feel that these five minutes belong to your inner being and to nobody else. Regularity is of paramount importance. What you need is regular practice at a regular time.”
