The Zabuton meditation cushion is the ideal support to complement any sitting meditation cushion or meditation bench. It offers the ultimate comfort by cushioning legs, knees, and ankles from hard floors while you meditate. It is made with soft cotton batting and the covers are durable cotton twill fabric that are available in a variety of colors. The Zabuton is available in economy or deluxe versions with dimensions of 36" long, 28" wide, and 3" thick. You can purchase the cushion separately or in combination sets of your choice.
The economy Zabuton has the cotton batting sewn directly into the cotton twill fabric with tufting in five places to keep the batting securely in place. The deluxe version has the cotton batting enclosed in linen fabric and it is also tufted in five places. In addition, the deluxe cushion comes with a zippered, removable and washable cotton twill cover in your choice of several attractive colors. In combination with the Zafu, the Zabuton is the standard in meditation support. You can purchase both pillows in a set and choose from the deluxe or economy models for each cushion. You can also choose between the kapok or buckwheat hull fill for the Zafu.
The Zafu and Zabuton meditation cushions work well in the lotus posture, providing the ideal support and comfort needed. Whatever posture is assumed during meditation, you need a firm foundation and proper alignment of your body in order to support the body's structure and your breath. Meditation cushions provide you with the support you need to keep the body aligned so that you can focus on your practice without being distracted by physical discomfort. Many cushions are available for meditation including the Zafu and Zabuton. They are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors as well as being made from many different materials. You should consider the designs carefully in order to determine which styles best meet your specific needs.
The choice in color of your Zabuton cushion will also make a difference. You can order a new cover for your cushion to fit either the economy or deluxe inserts and provide an entirely different atmosphere to your meditation. Different colors affect your personal energy in different ways. Red is linked with fire energy and elevates energy while green creates balance and calmness and encourages slow, deep breathing. Violet restores balance while yellow lifts the mood and clears the mind. Blue is a calming color that helps you relax while orange induces healing, both physically and mentally. To induce deep inward focus and discipline, choose black.
Sage Meditation also offers meditation cushions in organic. Organic Zabuton cushions are made of 100% organic fabric and cotton batting and are equivalent in design to the traditional non-organic meditation cushions. The difference is that these organic designs are made with organic cotton batting that is covered with organic linen fabric and stitched to prevent movement and bunching up of the batting. The organic Zabuton meditation cushion is the perfect complement to the organic Zafu meditation cushion.
