Those who meditate for four or five hours at one stretch can have Asanas

either Padma and Vajra or Siddha and Vajra in the beginning. Sometimes

the blood accumulates in the part of the legs or thighs and gives a little

trouble. After two hours, change the Asana from Padma or Siddha Asana

to Vajrasana or stretch the legs at full length. Lean against a wall or a

pillow. Keep the spine erect. This is the most comfortable Asana. Join two

chairs. Sit in one chair and stretch the legs on another chair. This is another

contrivance.

This is one kind of meditation for beginners. Sit in Padmasana in a soli-

tary room. Close your eyes. Meditate on the effulgence in the sun, splendour

in the moon, glory in the stars, beauty in the sky!
