The process by which one enters the Lotus position is inseparable from the ultimate posture. One does not simply assume it but arrives at it by a choreography that must be worked out individually. Practice begets elegance and ease. First-timers are apt to fumble or get stuck. Other cars' entry routines involve folding up, becoming horizontal before entering. The Lotus position is most easily achieved by first standing on the aluminum floor, gently supporting one's weight by gripping the back of the seat, which has just enough softness, then sliding downward, guiding one's knees on either side of the tiny wheel. In the Lotus position, enlightenment can be experienced.
