Canonical Source of Posture

Is there anywhere a detailed description (legs, back, hands, head, etc.) of the sitting posture in the Pali Canon? If not, what is the earliest source?

Re: Layman Arahant

It seems not many people got interested in the possiblity of a lay arahant, or the essay is too long to go through...

Re: Layman Arahant

Ben,

Thanks, I found the only discussion in that part about Lay Arahants, so thought it's OK there.

Freewaru,

I've never met that kind of interpretation, nevertheless, it sounds interesting.

Layman Arahant

There is an interesting essay by Piya Tan: Layman Saints. Basically it shows how the view that an arahant must be a monk or die shortly is not necessarily true. I'd like to hear some educated opinions about it.
