Hi everybody

do you have an experience with a net during meditation? I will go to India and I would like to have something like this. http://www.saddhamma.org/html/photo-album.shtml
Kind regards

Hi Meditator - I've used those nets at MBMC (Malaysia), where there are no screens on the windows so mosquitoes fly around at will. They can be stuffy, but I like meditating inside them far better than being relentlessly bitten (though I didn't have repellent). If you're thinking of traveling with one, the metal stand and ring would be far too bulky. I've never seen or used them in India (haven't been there in a while), though I suspect they are available somewhere, depends on where you are. It may turn out you don't really need one (a good repellent may be enough), but if you do, you can always have one made at a very reasonable cost.

Hi -

I've used one of these in the summer for sleeping in the yard and cushion time. My only recommendation is to air it out through a few nights, even hose it down. Mine seemed to have a lot of dust on it (no repellant was advertised) that came from it's own material. After it had been rained on and had blown in the wind it was fine. I like this item so much more than wearing a repellant or using mosquito coils. I see them online for about $25.

Good luck.

Thanks for your reply, I looked more and it seems that I will find something for me at internet. There is many staff when I wrote "mosquito netting"
Here is my thanks by a funny picture

I also owned the suit you showed in that funny picture when I worked along the bering sea with migratory birds!

Let me tell you arctic mosquito "herds" are epic and nearly pushed to me my brink. The sea breeze usually keeps them off, but lo, the days with no breeze...nearly insane!

Good luck!
