The way you support your body in sitting meditation can make the difference between feeling tensed or relaxed. The traditional combination of a meditation cushion and zabuton is very popular, this is the most comfortable support for meditation exercises.
Sitting on a meditation cushion gives your hips extra height, allowing your pelvis to tilt forward and keep your spine in a straight line. When the spine is in its natural state, it supports itself. When you have to make a lot of effort to maintain your posture, your body becomes tense and tired. The other advantage of an easy sitting posture is that when you do not use the core muscles to stay upright, breathing becomes more easily. This also helps to keep your energy while sitting.
The use of a zabuton provides more comfort. When you sit, especially for longer periods, your knees, the bones in your feet and ankles can become painful on a hard floor. Placing a zabuton under your meditation cushion or meditation bench prevents this problem. It also adds an extra layer of insulation when you are sitting on a cold floor or in a cool room.
