Greetings from Lotus Templar Inc Buddhist Church!

As our world becomes increasingly fast-paced, carving out a personal space dedicated to tranquility and mindfulness is not only beneficial—it's essential. If you've been thinking of setting up your own meditation corner, you're in the right place! With the vast array of products on Amazon, you can find everything you need at the click of a button. Below, we've curated a list of essential items to help you create a serene meditation space.

Comfort is paramount when meditating, and a proper cushion set can make all the difference. The zafu helps elevate your hips for a more comfortable seated position, while the zabuton cushions your knees and ankles.

Setting the ambiance begins with your choice of wall decor. Opt for tapestries or scrolls that evoke feelings of serenity, whether it be a depiction of the Buddha, a lotus flower, or calming landscapes.

Natural salt lamps not only offer a gentle glow but are believed to purify the air. If you prefer candles, LED candle sets offer the ambiance without any fire hazard. Both can help create a soothing atmosphere.

Aroma can significantly influence our state of mind. Essential oil diffusers allow you to introduce calming scents like lavender or chamomile into your space, enhancing your meditation experience.

The gentle sound of flowing water can be incredibly soothing. An indoor water fountain serves both as a focal point for meditation and a source of ambient, calming sound.

An age-old tool for meditation, Tibetan singing bowls produce resonant sounds that can help center your mind and signal the beginning or end of your practice.

As mentioned in our previous blogs, mala beads are a versatile meditation tool, aiding in mantra recitations or simply serving as a tactile point of focus.

8. Inspirational Books

A well-selected book can provide guidance or serve as a source of reflection. Consider titles such as "The Miracle of Mindfulness" by Thich Nhat Hanh or "The Art of Happiness" by the Dalai Lama.

Introducing a touch of nature can enliven your meditation corner. Whether it's a low-maintenance plant or a beautiful bonsai tree, this touch of green can symbolize growth and grounding.

Stay on track without the jarring sound of a regular alarm. Meditation timers with gentle chimes allow you to start and conclude your sessions with grace.


At Lotus Templar Inc Buddhist Church, we believe that the journey inward is one of the most profound adventures one can embark upon. By curating a space that resonates with peace and intention, your meditation practice can flourish. We hope this list aids you in creating a haven of serenity in your own home.

May your meditation corner be a sanctuary of stillness amidst the chaos of everyday life. 🌸
