Here we show the Whatever Cushion
under a sore knee. When you begin practicing meditation, you should expect to feel some pain during sitting - much as you would if you took up a new sport. Remember that it is ok to change positions if you experience pain. You may even try standing behind your cushion for a while until you feel ready to sit again. It is important to accept your body as it is and to be gentle with yourself. Meditation is a life-long practice. The Heart Sutra says, “No attainment, with nothing to attain”. In time your body will become comfortable with sitting and you will look forward to “assuming the position”.
