Where can I buy a Zafu (online) in Europe ?
« on: May 10, 2010, 09:36:38 PM »
I am sitting on a pile of telephone directories and feel it is time to upgrade but cannot find an online store that sells Zafus and Zabutons that ships from Europe  ???
Any tips ?

Instead of sitting on the directories look for a supplier in them :D :D :D :D :D#

Or try ebay:

About £50 delivered in the UK .. will be a bit more to Europe. I recommend Samadhi cushions Gomden and Zabuton sets but they're expensive-ish at $129 plus postage from the US:



Good for putting the pelvis and back in a good position and reducing stress on knees.

Thanks for the links !

The cushions from Samadhi Cushions looked really nice and I will probably go for a set from them.
Yes, they are a bit expensive but buying a nice set is a sort of statement that this is something I am going to continue doing for the rest of my life.
I just started working again from being unemployed for a few months and I have been too exhausted to sit for some days but yesterday In sat for an hour and afterwards I felt so happy and refreshed and really, really glad and thankful for having found my way to meditation.
I can honestly say that it is the single best thing that happened to me in my life and I will honour my practice with a really nice set of Zafu and Zabuton   :)

You know Matthew, I actually brought my directories with me to the 10 day course and have been sitting on them for almost 300 hours so do not make a joke about them  ;D

As for the Cadillac, convivum, a bit unorthodox but why not . will not fit in my flat though.

Again, I am so glad I am doing this (meditation) and I could never have imagined what tremendous change it can bring to life.

zen companies and monasteries seems to make the nicest zafus/zabutons
maybe because they are rooted in japan. i haven't sat on one from this company:
