When I took the Mountain Seat out of the box I sat down on it just to get a feel for it. The zafu was so incredibly comfortable that I just sat for about a half an hour. I've never been more comfortable on a zafu and zabuton, and I've sat quite a few different ones in numerous zendos and meditation centers all over New York City. It is well worth the price and it is helping me to sit for longer and longer periods of time without the usual degree of discomfort on my ankles/feet/back. Well worth the money.

As a senior and relative newcomer to meditation practice, I'm delighted with my Mountain Seat, and can highly recommend it to all regardless of age. Slightly more expensive, but well worth it. To anyone considering this purchase,I can assure you it is one you will not regret.

Very nicely made and the viscoelastic foam does indeed make sitting easier on my stiff old legs. Thank you!

I recently purchased the mountain seat zafu & zabuton set and I am now absolutely convinced that it is the best investment I have made into a meditation aid ever.
After 30 years of relative pain, I now sit in a comfortable half - lotus without needing a wall to lean back into. This product does what it says; aligns your spine and adjusts to the pressure and movement of your body. I have held back for over a month before commenting as I just couldn't believe it. Living in the UK, I took a bit of a gamble on this as the shipping costs and customs clearance adds approx another $200 to the puchase price of $185....All I can say is it is well worth it....I can only urge you to consider an outlet in the UK. I am so grateful, I only have to deal with my discursive thoughts now, my body is where it should be......sitting comfortably. Many Thanks

I am a 54 year old woman and have been sitting for many years. For the past 10 years or so I have had increasing knee and back pain. During the week - long sesshins I would have to sit several rounds of zazen in a chair because of the pain, and I would use every break available to do stretches. This past November sesshin I tried using the Mountain Seat Zafu and Zabuton set. I was stunned to find that I was able to sit the entire weeklong sesshin pain - free and on the cushion, not having to use a chair at all. I also didn't have to do the usual hour of stretches that I previously did. I wanted to run out and buy everyone I knew a Mountain Seat Zafu set!! It is fabulous for anyone sitting zazen. Great use of new technology in the dharma.Thanks.
