Sitting flat on the floor with your legs crossed is the best position for meditation. This is because: It enables you to develop samadhi (concentration) power. It enables you to develop deeper samadhis. The very best posture for meditation is full-lotus, since it is by far the most stable position. The second best posture is half-lotus. If you cannot do this, then try the comfortable posture. Those who cannot sit on the floor can begin by sitting in a chair or on a bench.
