We doubt that you’ll find another meditation mat as thick and comfortable as our classic Bodhi Seat Zabuton, which was especially designed for long hours of meditation. Pair it with your favorite zafu or sitting bench and let your body relax into the posture that Zen Master Dogen called “the gate of ease and joy.” Recycled cotton batting in a removable cover.
27” long x 32” wide with 3” loft.
Please choose Black, Charcoal, Chocolate, Navy, Burgundy, Cinnamon, Sage or Saffron.

I was unsure if I really needed one of these, but I’m glad I bought it. It’s nice to have something under my ankles to cushion the weight of my legs to prevent them from grinding into the floor. The best benefit, for me, is that it rounds out the section of my bedroom wall that I’ve allocated as my “meditation spot”. This is an area about the size of this zabuton which reminds me when I see it about mindfulness. Also getting into this dedicated spot helps me shift my frame of mind to focusing on the meditation. It’s been really helpful to have a dedicated place to meditate, I highly recommend it.
I use the mat with a seiza bench for 30 minutes at a time. Thus my knees, shins, and tops of my feet are my main contact points. The mat is soft enough to be comfortable, yet firm enough to keep my legs and bench in place. The covering is also soft yet seems durable to last a while. I've used it for a few weeks and am very happy so far.
These are so comfortable! They help make sitting more pleasant, eliminating the need to frequently readjust. Very supportive of the knees and ankles. Ordered these for the launch of a new retreat center and the experienced meditators who came to this retreat were very pleased with these cushions.
The cover is a little loose and it's softer than I imagined but does the job well. I would probably just get a thin buckwheat one when pairing it with a support cushion. But this is fine too.
Perfect support for my ankles and knees.
Basically it's a small futon. Well constructed, just the right amount of cushion, and the cover looks very durable but...time will tell. I'm quite happy with my purchase!
