Commentary: In this verse the Lord has prescribed the external seat for practising meditation. Details of the pose are given in verse 13.
Spread the Kusa-grass on the ground first. Over this spread a tiger-skin or deer-skin; over this spread a white cloth.
Sit on a naturally clean spot, such as the bank of a river. Or, make the place clean, wherever you want to practise meditation.
