Tibetan Seat/Gomden

(12 customer reviews)


SKU: N/A Category:


The Tibetan Seat, known sometimes as a Gomden, is a firm rectangular zafu developed by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and used in Shambala Centers worldwide. We use our 100% cotton duck fabric shell over a firm and comfortable foam block. Our foam is easy on your behind, and firm enough to provide you with the support you need – we admit it, we think it’s just right!

This cushion has a comfy quilted top and carrying handle. The Tibetan Seat comes in four handsome color combinations – Black with Blue, Black with Burgundy, Black with Black, Grey Ikat, and Bali Blue.

It should be noted that this cushion does not replace our round or crescent shaped zafus. The Tibetan Seat is used differently. When sitting on it, the meditator’s feet and ankles touch the zabuton or carpeted floor, but the knees do not. This is particularly helpful for those who aren’t flexible enough to get their knees to the floor. The Seat serves as a relaxed platform for meditation, listening to talks, or studying at a low table.

The Tibetan Seat measures 16.5” wide, 12.5” deep, 6.5” high. The shell is removable and machine washable.

  1. Beautifully made, but unfortunately it was too firm for me so I am returning it.

  2. Amazing! Very well made, comfortable, and durable. Just what I need to support my practice.

  3. Works great!

  4. The seat is very well made, and it is very comfortable. Its height makes it easy to sit down and get up. I’m very happy with it.

  5. Am ever so pleased with the quality of workmanship! I had some concerns that it would not be firm enough for my liking; cast all doubts aside! It is all that I hoped it would be. Very quick turnaround on order process and delivery-Thanks, Still Sitting
