Pleated Crescent Zafu - Buckwheat 108 BEAD WU TAI SHAN MALA

Pleated Crescent Zafu - Buckwheat WU TAI SHAN MALA
Our crescent-shaped zafu slopes from 7.5" at the back to 4.5" at the front which ensures you pelvis remains above your knees, which is essential for extra  sitting comfort.

Crescent zafu cushions fulfil the same purpose as a traditional round zafu, though the crescent shape provides more support for your upper thighs, which some find more comfortable. Being approximately two thirds the size of a round zafu also makes it relatively lighter and more convenient to store and transport.

The cushion is pleated for extra durability and is filled with natural buckwheat hulls. They naturally conform to your body shape, whilst providing a stable platform to sit on. The cushion has a convenient handle for easy carrying and a hidden zip allows you to add or remove buckwheat hulls to adjust the loft to suit you.
These great wood malas are said to come from the sacred Taoist and Buddhist pilgrimage region of Wu Tai Shan in China. This area also known as the Five-Peaked Mountain is believed to be the abode of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. The great Dzogchen master known as Vimalamitra is still said to reside in these mountains and many believe he still appears to furtunate disciples. Wu Tai Shan malas are very similar in appearance and weight to sandalwood. They have a slightly redish hue with natural stripes.

Satya Super Hit Nag Champa Incense - 15 grams
A translation of the autobiography of Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye, one of the most influential Tibetan teachers and scholars, and proponent of the Rimey nonsectarian movement. Jamgon Kongtrul (1813-1900) was also a prolific writer and this book includes two additional texts: one, authored by Kongtrul himself, discusses the past masters of whom he was considered to be an emanation; the second was written by one of his close personal students and recounts Kongtrul's final days and funeral rites. Super Hit incense comes from the makers of the world famous Satya Sai Nag Champa incense. It is a natural musky spice incense that creates a deep meditative atmosphere. This is certainly one of the best affordable natural Indian incenses in the marketplace.

Nag Champa is a unique and popular incense from India. It belongs to the "Champa" class of Indian incense, originating from the Champa Flower. Champa incenses contain a natural ingredient indigenous to India called "halmaddi", which is a semi-liquid resin taken from the Ailanthus Malabarica tree. It is what gives Nag Champa its characteristic grey colour. Halmaddi is hygroscopic which means it absorbs moisture from the air. This can cause Nag Champa incenses to have a slightly damp feeling to them.

A vibrant incense that can be used for puja or simply scenting the air to create a heady ambience.
