Re: How long do you meditate for?

This hasn't exactly gone the way I'd have expected from a simple question. Sorry 'bout that. Again, I wasn't casting aspersions on others practice, merely curious as to how long you spend in seated meditation as opposed to seating Puja etc. Just a simple question with no hidden agenda.

Re: How long do you meditate for?

Did you do your HYT practice not on a cushion or something? You keep talking as if tantric practitioner don't do anything on cushions, kind of bizarre. I didn't imply that for a second.
