Being a big fan of mediation I know that there are many different meditation supplies available. Some of the most popular are pillows, candles, CDs, and incense.
Some forms of meditation require specific supplies. For example, people who practice Tibetan Buddhist meditation techniques often use rosary beads to count prayers or mantras. They can rotate the prayer beads as they meditate, or strike a gong as part of the meditation ritual. See here for information on how to use malas for mediation.
A bowl of singing is one of many Tibetan Buddhist meditation supplies. If an attacker is dragged around the rim of the pot, it produces a soothing tone that can help the practitioner to concentrate.
Many meditation supplies are designed to provide a relaxed and calm atmosphere, conducive to meditation. Energy chimes, statues, decorative altar panels and wall plaques of gods and goddesses can promote a harmonious environment. Other meditation supplies are created with comfort in mind, such as meditation benches, carpets, pillows, cushions and pillows.
Carpets and cushions come in many different sizes, materials, colors and thicknesses. Designed to create comfortable seats during meditation, specially designed pillows can help the practitioner to align the spine and reach a comfortable height while meditating. Meditation benches are useful for people who are unable to sit comfortably on the floor and are also designed to help people to have proper bone and comfort to hold a successful meditation session.
It is impossible to keep a meditative state while watching the clock, so the meditation timers are designed to signal the practitioner when the amount of time has elapsed. Meditation timers emit soothing sounds to gently bring a meditating person to the relaxed state. Zen meditation awakenings and timers often use the soothing sounds of bells, chimes and more.
Candles and incense can help set the meditative mood. Some forms of meditation require the practitioner to focus on a specific object, such as a candle flame, to reach the meditative state. Odor can also contribute to creating the conditions for achieving a relaxed and altered state. Incense can be found in sticks, cones and powders. Coal and incense designed to burn incense powder are popular meditation supplies that many people use.
Meditation supplies include accessories for the practitioner who combines yoga with meditation. Blocks can help a person achieve or maintain a proper posture and attitude. These blocks are found in a variety of sizes and are made from wood, cork, and foam. There are also studs that come in different lengths and diameters. Bridles are designed to support different parts of the body during yoga and meditation.
