The sutras tell us that the Buddha sat in meditation on a pile of leaves and a mat made of reeds. The rest of us need a little more support, so here’s a firm yet pliable cushion that adjusts readily to the shape of your seat while providing excellent lower back support. Comes with a zipper for easy refills of our naturally-processed buckwheat hulls. Made in the USA.
7" high x 13" diameter.
Please choose Black, Charcoal, Chocolate, Navy, Burgundy, Cinnamon, Sage or Saffron.
Donate your old cushion to a practitioner with limited means.

Previously I was meditating on the couch, then I moved to the floor to be more grounded, but it was uncomfortable and my legs often went to sleep. I moved to a folded up pillow to sit on, which fixed some of my issues, but was unstable and hard to set up. This cushion is the right size, stable, comfortable and looks nice too. It’s easy to sit right down onto it. The instructions say that you may want to remove some of the filler, but it felt perfect with all the filler in tact, so I may have to order some more as it breaks down. Love this thing!
I ordered 20 of these for the opening of a new retreat center in Big Bear, CA, and the reviews of the first retreatants were excellent. Though they are billed as "standard" these zafus are definitely higher than average and great for people with longer legs, knee issues or not as much flexibility - but I have short legs and decent flexibility and still prefer these taller zafus. Very comfortable to sit on as well! And the customer service was superb!
A sturdy, well-made zafu. It is very comfortable but firm and takes the strain off my lower back. I highly recommend it for both beginning and long-time meditators.
This zafu is exactly what my knees kneed. The extra height allows my hips to be happy and therefore my knees are not stressed. I like a firm cushion and this fits the bill nicely. It appears very well made and should last a long time.
I was very surprised at the comfort because of the price. It is tall enough, soft enough and holds up too, so I can sit longer without sleepy feet and legs. It may be me but I can feel a gentle spirit of the cushion; maybe it is just a piece of the kind people who sent it. Purchased with the Bodhi Seat Zabuton, and it arrived earlier than expected
This zafu is so sturdy and has a very nice, balanced lift. It feels so perfect underneath me, and I have really deepened my practice after taking it out of the box. A very inviting seat.
The zafu works well for both kneeling and cross-legged postures. It’s firm, but its shape can be molded to various postures. I also appreciate the extra height compared with other common round zafus. I’m extremely satisfied with this purchase.
Was looking for something with a little more height for longer sits. This cushion fits the bill. Can sit on it with little knee discomfort.
From my first sitting on this Bodhi Seat, I was at home. I have always liked the way buckwheat hulls adjust and yet stay put. I am 74, and I find the handle useful. Versatile. A great seat!
I sit both Zen and Tibetan and I am looking forward to sitting on this during those long teaching in Tibetan when no amount of shifting works. I should be able to have several comfortable positions to choose from.
