In the Zen tradition..

One teacher (Shunru Suzuki Roshi) put it this way: ” The state of mind that exists when you sit in the right posture is itself enlightenment…These forms [sitting meditation] are not the means of obtaining the right state of mind. To take this posture is itself the right state of mind.” In the sitting meditation, you are already touching your own truest nature.
