Sitting in a lotus position, even if they are prepared to put up with some discomfort, is difficult for most untrained adults. Keeping the mind blank is worse; some people have told me it was the most difficult thing they had ever attempted. --Chapter 26: The Beauty and Profundity of Zen (Some Philosophical Considerations for Zen Training) - The Easiest or the Most Difficult
