Depending on the cushion color, the Zippered cover is 100% Cotton or a Cotton-Poly blend.

For additional height and a comfortable meditation posture consider a support pillow.

Use the Zabuton Mat (from the Japanese Zen tradition) with a Gomden® to provide a cushion for your knees and ankles.

We can sew a custom color for the center of the Gomden® for an additional charge (no extra charge for black with red center or red with yellow center). Please contact us for custom cushions.

Perfection August 8, 2019
Reviewer: Rev Sam Takeo from San francisco, CA United States  
Badly needed this item to become more comfortable in the long term during my meditation times as the arthritis in my knees were relentless untill sitting with my new Gomden.

Excellent Gomdens and Large Zabutons June 20, 2019
Reviewer: Birmingham Shambhala Center from Birmingham, Alabama  
Our meditation center purchased 15 new gomdens and large zabutons to replace most of our old, well-used cushions.  The gomdens are the firmer ones - not mushy.  The zabutons are wonderfully thick and easy on the feet/ankles.  We ordered the large zabutons rather than the standard size that comes in the set to give everyone more foot room.  Samadhi - as always - was easy to work with.
(The old cushions were donated to a prison meditation project.)

Gomden Meditation Cushion June 5, 2019
Reviewer: Joe G. from Ojai, CA  
Due to knee injure can no longer sit comfortably on a Zafu. Friend had Golden Cushion that worked for me. The extra height was just what I needed. The cushion that I ordered was expertly made and well packaged with instructions for return included.

Sadly not right for me May 27, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
I first used a gomden at Naropa. The height and support worked well for me then so I bought one recently (ten years later).  The company has been great to work with, the item is very well-made, and I love the yellow on red pattern, but the gomden is just not right for my body (6'2" slim, male); the edge of it puts pressure on my thighs cutting off circulation and leaving my feet uncomfortably numb. Sitting comfortably has been a continuous challenge for me and I was hopeful this cushion would be my solution. But after over a month of daily adjustments (adding a softer support cushion on the gomden, supporting my knees, sitting closer to the edge to try to lower my knees, adding extra padding to the zabuton, and many combinations of these) I still can't make it more than a few minutes without pins and needles. My search continues...
