For some people a meditation cushion is a comfortable alternative to a stool or chair. These large meditation cushions have a cover that is made from black, heavy duty cotton drill and each has a reinforced handle. Because of their size they have more height than some cushions for sitting, which can be beneficial. They have a velcro closing strip for easy refilling. There is no inner liner.
Each zafu has a diameter of approximately 45cm (large) and weighs approx 3.8 kg when filled with buckwheat hulls. Over time the buckwheat hulls will naturally compact. Top up with more to suit your comfort. Buckwheat hulls are often available to purchase at retreat if you need a top up.
Care: Store buckwheat hulls and zafus in a dry place. Spot clean. Avoid wetting the cushion excessively.
Use in conjunction with a padded floor mat or zabuton (see picture of zafu in use) but you could use a folded rug or other soft mat for kneeling on.
