Question for January 5, 2014: Meditation Supplies
Medivate — 4 years ago — in Question of the Week
Are there supplies you consider "essential" to meditating? What are they?

I struggle to find any supplies I think are required. There are helpful things — a seat that you can keep alert on at the top of my mind — but even that doesn't feel "essential". Your body, your breath, and the ability to pay attention seems to be all of it.

Agreed. That's the beauty of it-- while it might be nice to have a special cushion, a bell, incense, whatever, none of that is really necessary. You just need yourself and your attention.
