- In meditation the emphasis is on the importance of being able to sit in one position without movement and without distraction of the physical body.
- This meditation practice seems to contradict this basic rule. During the technique one tries to be aware of the body to the exclusion of all else. Awareness of the body is accentuated.
- This practice is based on a good understanding of the mind. There is a natural tendency of the mind to want to do the opposite of what it’s told to do, like a naughty child. By focusing on the body, the mind rebels, forgetting the body, achieving the aim of meditation and naturally becoming introverted.
- As the body becomes steady and still, so does the mind.
