Best Zafu & Zabuton Meditation Cushion Sets
Share on Social Media

Traditionally used for zazen zen meditation (meaning seated meditation), zafu and zabuton cushions make a meditation more practical and comfortable, especially if you meditate sitting on the floor. They’re especially nice if your home has hardwood floors, or your knees are sensitive.

Zafu is the Japanese name for a round cushion (called putuan in Chinese). Traditionally they are stuffed with reedmace down making them very soft and comfortable. To use them for meditation, you sit the buttocks on the cushion, which allows the knees to rest on the floor.

Some people choose to use a zafu with a zabuton, which is a rectangular cushion that can be placed under the zafu pillow to provide more comfort and support for the knees during meditation. These can be purchased separately or bought together in a set.

We have collected some of the best zafu and zabuton sets so you can find the perfect match to enhance your meditation practice.
