I use an afghan prayer rug as my floor mat and a very thin futon-style chair cushion folded over.
I also use a dark-brown/grey blanket as a meditation shawl.
Anyway, I thought you, or someone else, may appreciate knowing about the following inflatable travel cushions at Pariyatti.
I actually got to use one courtesy of one of my American friends at Shwedagon Peyah.http://store.pariyatti.org/Meditation-A ... c_137.html
If and when I go travelling again - I'll probably invest in a couple of inflatable cushions.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
