The Spirit of Om and Bodhi cushions in our range are very suitable as a support for knees or hands during meditation. These cushions are versatile in use making, and therefore pleasant to lie on during a massage, or just for extra comfort during relaxation. The support cushions are filled with buckwheat chaff, pure wool or feathers.
Our meditation cushions are filled with buckwheat chaff. The chaff of the buckwheat is durable. It does not reflect or direct heat, and makes it pleasantly cool to sit on, especially in the summer. Another nice feature of buckwheat chaff is that it is form-retaining and resilient. Buckwheat feels the same as sitting on sand, it shifts directly under you, in accordance with the shape of your body. It gives way and is solid.
Over time, meditation cushions may feel less firm. This is easy to solve by filling the cushions with loose buckwheat chaff. Our meditation cushions are provided with a detachable outer cover with zipper, as well as the inner cover, which makes refilling with buckwheat chaff easy.
In our range we have loose buckwheat chaff, and is available in cotton bags of about 800 grams or packages of about 10 kilos.
A mala is a string of beads that is used within the Buddhism. A mala consists of 108 beads, sometimes half of them or a quarter. The number 108 is a sacred number in many Eastern religions, it refers among others to the 108 names of Shiva.
The beads are mostly seeds of the Rudraksha, the tree that was formed from tears of compassion from Shiva, according to the legends.
The guru bead marks the beginning and the end of the necklace; when you arrive here, you take a short moment to think about your guru or the purpose for which you meditate: the pursuit of enlightenment.
The tassel spreads the positive energy that the mala absorbs during the recitation.
A mala is often used in meditation and works as follows:
You hang the mala over the middle or ring finger of your left or right hand; after each mantra you slide the chain with your thumb a bead further (not with the index finger, because that symbolizes the ego). When you come to the guru bead, turn the chain around so that the last bead is the first, and then you go around again.
