Zafu, much more than a comfort accessory

Human beings have been meditating for several millennia. As spiritual beings incarnated on Earth, we have always felt the need to connect with higher forces, to obtain protection, healing and guidance.

But, for a truly regenerating and inspiring meditation , certain external conditions are necessary; we have always known this too. Among these conditions: a calm environment, a relaxing atmosphere and... good seating !

Yes: a comfortable position facilitates the meditative state, because it allows the mind to fully relax, while focusing its attention on the present moment.

Zen Buddhists, among others, understood this well and developed zafu .

This small meditation cushion , originating from China and present in Asia as far as Japan, is traditionally made up of three pieces of fabric sewn together, then filled with cattails or cattails. These plants in the reed family provide thick, soft padding, ideal for a comfortable cushion . Modern zafus are generally filled with buckwheat husks or kapok fibers.

The big advantage of zafu is that it offers a stable seat by raising the hips, and thus allows the meditator to fully benefit from his meditation . A reliable and solid object therefore, which occupies a place of honor among Buddhists.

Indeed, Zen Buddhism imposes certain codes to be observed. After carefully carrying his zafu to the meditation hall, the meditator traditionally performs the gassho , a salute expressing reverence and respect. Standing in front of the zafu , he places his hands in front of his chest, then leans slightly forward before settling on the cushion. In doing so, one thanks the zafu for his help in carrying out daily spiritual practice.

Zazen meditation can then begin. In total silence, the meditator crosses his legs, then places his hands on the lower abdomen, palms raised towards the sky, the right palm in the left palm. With his eyes half-closed, he simply follows his breathing, observing his thoughts. .

Such a practice gradually leads to enlightenment and the achievement of inner peace ... Incredible, what a quality meditation cushion can do for you!
