The Drepung Loseling monks are a group of refugee monks who have started a small business venture in Kathmandu in order to help sustain their monastery in exile in Southern India. Because of our long standing interest in Tibetan refugees we approached them to see how we could help them out and then developed a line of items that they produce for us. The money for these products all goes to the monastery and supports their community in exile. They set the prices and the monks make the products and live in the monastary in Kathmandu. Photo/Tenzin Choejor/OHHDL

ZAFUS by Drepung Monks 

Our zafu is a round traditional meditation cushion with pleated sides. The cover is made of beautiful brocade fabric. Each zafu has a carrying handle and features a hidden side zipper for easy cleaning. The inside cushion is made of durable cotton and is also stuffed with cotton. 40″ circumference. 13″ diameter and 5.5″ high

Zafu pillows provide better spine alignment and proper height for a more comfortable and deeper meditation. The Zafu makes sitting meditation easier on the knees and ankles. Great for decorating as well! Exquisite workmanship!
