A lot of people consider meditation as a tool for relaxation and hence they think that it’s also possible while lying on the bed, so often there is the question of people that if they can really meditate while lying on the bed. Yes I also saw one of these questions, can I meditate lying on bed? And my first question to this person would be can you meditate at all? Can you meditate while sitting? If the answer is yes then you can meditate while lying on the bed, you can meditate while walking, you can meditate while doing any other thing but the essential component is or the essential thing to consider is can you meditate? So if you can meditate, you can meditate everywhere and the best way to learn that, the best way to practice that the best way to master that is to meditate while sitting and I guess the main reason for this is that you stay awake during your meditation practice and not fall asleep which is very easy when you lay down. We have trained our body our mind to fall asleep while we are on the bed and with sitting, there is something about the posture of meditation that your energies do not let you fall in sleep. A lot of people also find it difficult to sit in a still posture and hence they are looking for ways in which they can be in a relaxed posture and that’s where maybe the question comes from whether they can meditate on the bed, but to all those beginners I would advise to go through the process of learning easy sitting posture. It doesnt have to be cross legged, it can be sitting on a chair simply with the legs on the floor but it has to be a posture where you can be more alert you can be more attentive your back bone is straight and you are not naturally about to fall asleep. Makes sense.
