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.

Sun and Moon Deluxe Zafu and Zabuton 2 Piece Set

Sun and Moon brags that the Dali Lama himself orders custom zafu cushions from them, so you know they’re good. The pleated round zafu cushion comes filled with your choice of buckwheat hull or kapok (a resilient plant fiber). The zabutons come in a matching color and is filled with 3-inch cotton batting.

Not sure what filling to choose? Kapok provides a firmer support, while the buckwheat conforms to the shape of your body like a foam pillow. The firmness is adjustable by using the zipper on the zafu to adjust the amount of buckwheat. The zafu also includes a handle for easy portability.

With 14 different color options, you’re sure to find a nice, comfortable set to match the decor and design of your meditation space.

The zabuton measures 36″ x 28″.

Made in the USA from eco-friendly materials.

Available colors: burgundy, sage green, natural, cinnamon, black, purple, charcoal, forest green, chocolate, navy, iris, saffron
