Straight

Especially when you read... if you read in this posture [slouching] you will get tired quite soon. If you take this posture [sitting up straight with hip somewhat back and strength in the abdomen or hara], it is much better, you know. To put some strength here [hara], and to keep your back straight, and pull your hips as far back as you can, like this. Even when you sit in your chair, or even when you eat, you should be careful not to lose your nice posture. This is very, very important.------------------------------------------------------------------ Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-09-08-A as found on shunryusuzuki.com. Edited by DC - Many Shunryu Suzuki lecture excerpts on cuke.com - from there links to much more. Going slowly through Suzuki transcripts featuring whatever is next that seems okay.
