In this posture, the practice procedure in similar
to that of the sitting posture. You can practice through moving your
hand, breathing mindfulness, the prickling feeling in the center fo
the chest, or concentrating on the feeling in the soles of the feet.
The only difference is that when you are sitting, you can observe
the feelings caused by pressure on the buttocks, where as when you
stand, the pressure is on the soles of the feet.
If you concentrate on the feeling in the soles, you will distinguish
such sensations there as warmth, thightness, stiffness, heaviness,
numbness, or prickling, the sensation gradually extending upward to
the legs and trunk, and you may also feel a wavering off balance,
dizziness, headache, etc.
Do not be afraid of any such sensations but just continue concentrating.
The results of concentrating like this are similar to those in the
sitting posture. Older persons may, however, prefer to hold on to
a table to guard against falling.
