The Value

What would you think about those benefits, if you could get them?

  • What is the payback to having less stress?
  • What is the value to you of better posture?
  • How does your life change if you can achieve easeful, deep meditations?
  • What could you achieve with an increase in mental focus?
  • What would be the benefit to you over your lifetime of an improved ability to make better decisions?

On the other hand:
  • How much of a burden is the struggle with slouching and poor posture in your life?

  • What is the cost to you of mental distraction?
These are high costs and substantial benefits. A rational assessment must conclude, if the probability is merely greater than zero that these are realistic outcomes, then it is well worth an investment for exploration and experiment. Your task is to assess the realism here, and decide what makes sense for you.


Compare the benefits and value in your life between these and...

  • A vacation.

  • A meditation class.

  • Good sleep.

  • A healthy, strong, easeful, capable body.

  • Supportive relationships.

  • A gentle moment of calm, of timeout, of meditation, stillness, or worship, of turning within, putting down the burdens of the body and its cares.

These are all actually priceless. They have to do with the quality of our lives. These are what we live for, why we work so hard. They are worth the effort.


If you see potential value here and remain curious, the thing to do is get your behind sitting on one. Buy a Siddhasana and try it out. Against the costly alternative of being stuck in bad sitting posture, it's worth a small side bet that there is possibly something real and significant here for you. Please try it. Trying it yourself is the only way to really translate the abstractions of this website into actual experiences of your own. If you're curious, get one! If you are already enthusiastic about it and read on!
