How to Select a Zafu

How to Select a Zafu

We stand by our meditation cushions because we sit on them every day.

Monastics living at Zen Mountain Monastery developed our line of meditation cushions, including our patented Mountain Seat Zafu* meditation cushion. All of our cushions are made to the highest-quality standards within a 250-mile radius of The Monastery Store and come in Black, Navy, Burgundy and Sage colors. Need advice on choosing a cushion? Check out our chart below, or read our blog post about Choosing a Meditation Cushion.

Did you know that we're available during business hours from Tuesday afternoon through Saturday afternoon to help answer any questions you have about our meditation cushions and benches—or anything else related to your practice? Give us a call at (845) 688-7993, or email us at support@dharma.net. We'd love to talk to you.

Need a reason to upgrade? Donate your old cushion so that we can offer it free of charge to students, formerly incarcerated people, or military servicepeople. Learn about our Zafu Meditation Cushion Donation Program.
