Anuloma - " with the hair or grain " (opposed to prati-loma), in a natural direction, in order, regular, successive
For each individual, the natural grain is somewhat different. You can tell if someone is rubbing you the wrong way, or if, in meditation, you are trying to rub yourself the wrong way, to do someone else’s meditation.
As a first level of skill, don’t rub yourself the wrong way. Do not think of meditation as going against your inner nature or against your instincts. When learning to teach meditation, devote yourself to not going against your student’s inner nature. anuloma
